Reinstating the "Bet"

I did o.k. at the BBQ but it definitely could have been better. Today was a great day of eating. We made blueberry pancakes with whole wheat flour for breakfast, cashew chicken salad for lunch, and pork ribs for supper. Yes, I said pork ribs. The great thing about weight watchers is all things in moderation!

Dave played volleyball in a tournament yesterday and he played sand volleyball today in McCook. All of the activity has got him realizing that he wants to get into better shape since he can hardly move right now. He told me tonight that he wants to reinstate our bet. For those of you who didn't follow my blog a couple of years ago here's the low down...

The first person to break one of the following 3 rules has to pay the other person $100 for each rule broken.

1. No eating out (This will be a lot easier this time around because I live in the sticks and I don't have a lot of options.)
2. Follow our exercise plan. (If you miss a day you pay the piper. Dave will be doing Power 90, poor chump and I'll be starting the "Wave" with Mindy tomorrow at 6:00 a.m. sharp.)
3. Eating within points. (Dave is lucky to be a dude because he gets more points a day then I do. This one will be a challenge.)

For the record, I totally crushed Dave the last time we did this. He quickly faltered on the eating out and the exercise followed close behind. Finally, he bombed on his daily points. I'm excited to be starting this bet again because it really did motivate us to get into great shape. Plus, I'm thinking of all the new clothes and pampering I can do to myself with 300 bones. You better be ready to bring it Dave-a-ho. :)

Feel free to post predictions on who will win.

Weight Loss Reason #5- $300 bucks is reason enough for me right now!!!

Sounds like you had a good weekend. Glad to hear it.
Mine was pretty good too. I actually made it into a new group of 10 today... never to see the old one again!! I need to be really good for the next couple of days (eating and exercise) to make a little more room between me and the "old group" before we leave for Vegas on Thursday evening. Hopefully we will be busy enough during the day with lots of walking that I won't be eating (too much) but drinking lots of water because of the heat.
Good luck with the bet, I know you'll kick butt!!
