The husband and I are treating ourselves to a little Thanksgiving getaway. It is becoming a bit of a tradition with us. We were married 2 years ago in St. Thomas and then we honeymooned Thanksgiving week in St. John. Last year, we splurged and went back to St. John Thanksgiving week to celebrate our first anniversary. The second anniversary is this Monday and once again to congratulate ourselves for staying married, we decided a vacation was in order. Unfortunately, the Virgin Islands were a bit too pricey this year, so we settled for a trip to Riviera Maya, also known as the Mayan Riviera, in Mexico. Anyway, getting back to the point of this post, the husband challenged me to a weight lose competition. We have done this type of competition in the past to help keep us motivated with our work-outs and eating healthy. The deal is we both had 5 weeks to drop 5 pounds. If you reach your goal of 5 pounds then you win X amount of money, if we both lose the 5 pounds it is a wash. There was also a cash bonus for the person who loses the most weight. I accepted the challenge and booked myself 5 sessions with the personal trainer at my gym. The husband retaliated by turning our treadmill into a workstation, so when he works from home he can walk instead of sitting on the couch.
There is still one more week left in the challenge and I am currently down 5 pounds and the husband is down 4.5. Looks like we are both going to be winners and look dead sexy on the beach.
