I have told you before that my husband is a coach so you can imagine how much he LOVES COMPETITION and he PLAYS TO WIN!
Well this morning I commented that before next weekend, May 16th, when we leave for the Kenny Chesney concert that we should have goals for me to get into the 140's and for him to get into the 260's. He has lost 20 pounds so far and is hanging out at 274. I was at 152.6 this AM.
So we were talking on instant message today and I think I said something about me getting there but him not. You know the ol' I betcha can't do it trick to get someone fried up. Well, it worked AND now we have a competition to see who can lose the most weight before we leave for the beach in 10 weeks. I know there are so many other ways to judge success but we are going by the scale on this one and either way we will both be smaller and leaner.
We don't have the details ironed out yet but he basically has to lose 4 pounds to my every 1 pound. If he is on his plan he can lose an average of 3-4 pounds per week and I can lose about .8-1 pound so it is doable for me but I will have to be 100% with my food and consistently get in those 4 work outs per week.
We each get to pick our own reward. When I win I am going to have him do all of my Mom/Wife chores for 1 week like grocery shopping, laundry, dishes, dust, vaccum and bathrooms, he will do them now if I ask him but I have to ASK and I don't want to have to ask. If he wins, who knows what it will be. He is thinking on it he said. Plus, if one of us quits then the other is the automatic winner. I know that won't be me so I am good.
Stay tuned to see how it goes and to see when the claws come out.
