There's the kick in the pants I needed

Sparkpeople attempt- Take 24:
Well, this time I think I have some competition. My husband has always been pretty fit. As a carpenter he got a lot of exercise. Well, the past few years he has changed careers to a much more sedentary position. That, as you can imagine, has caught up with him. He has always been supportive of my efforts, but somehow I always felt like his equal, like, if he can have a plate FULL of spaghetti, so can I. That naturally backfires all the time. Now he tried to get his DOT medical card and was refused. I feel bad for him, but his blood pressure and weight both need to be addressed. So....he started tracking his food and being conscious of his eating choices, calories, etc. I have NEVER seen him do anything of the sort and it literally gave me an "AH-HA" moment. Well, let me tell you...I will NOT let him do better at this than me...I should be a darn professional at this compared to him. So needless to say, I am recharged and determined. I think we both have a midset of a little friendly competition. but neither one of us will admit it...BUT...ah ha...I will win this!
May the Spark be with me :)
