A little competition

So last month, we started a competition. We started it a week into the month. It was between my 3 sisters, my mom, and me. The rules were that you had to keep track of all the minutes you worked out until the end of the month. Then we would all go to dinner the next month and who ever had the most minutes got their dinner paid for by everyone else. The whole thought was that it was a good motivator to work out more and be more active. And a GREAT excuse to get to go out to a girls only dinner!


So this weekend was the dinner. We voted on a restaurant and the winner was Cascones- yummo italian! So I was feeling pretty confident. I knew I had several good long workouts. I had slacked the last week a bit and then got the stomach flu the last few days of the month. But I thought my earlier work would still keep me in the clear. Well even with my 630 minutes, I still lost to both my mom with 640 and my sister Kris who won with 701 minutes. So now I know no more slacking!! Watch out- I'm upping my game this month!


Here's a picture from the dinner: Alexis (mom), Liz (family friend), Kris, Meg, Lisa, me!

If I were in KC, I would so want in on the game! I put in around 150 minutes a week regular. So, I think I could hang. ;)

What a great incentive! Can we do that with some friends around here?!!

That is a great idea! I am surprised, that sounds like a lot of exercise, 701! Makes me wonder what I would do in a month...
