So my family an I are in a competition to see who can be the most fit. I've been working on getting all of the point system and rules down so that everything will be fair and that everyone will feel like they have a chance to win. But it seems like every other day someone doesn't like what I'm doing. It's a little frustrating when you think about how this competition was just supposed to get my overly competitive family motivated to get in shape, or for some just get more in shape. It's more fun than pain, but if I had high blood pressure, my little brother would not be helping the situation. I guess that's to be expected since I already said we were super competitive.
I'm really excited that my dad and husband are on board. They both have a hard time finding motivation to exercise, plus their both busy, and my dad has knee problems now. But with the championship on the line, everyone is stepping up their game. Did I mention we're competitive.
I'm also really happy to be talking with my little brother more. Since he's going to school and working full time, he mostly texted me during his classes (bad boo), but now he calls to complain about how the rules are unfair. But after we argue for a little while, we also talk and laugh, which is nice.
Now I've been exercising every day this week at least an hour, and I don't let myself skip because I'm trying to beat my sister-in-law who sometimes exercises up to 3 hours a day. So wish me luck! I know I can win!
