Today my Dad challenged my entire family to a 2009 fitness challenge. He's asked any of us who want to join to commit to engaging in a minimum of 20 minutes of physical activity at least 5 days a week. I think we all loved the idea because everyone in the family joined in. We will have to report to him daily and he will be in charge of recording our progress. This should be a great way to stay on track and be held accountable because he's promised to encourage us and give us some support when/if he notices we're falling behind. What's even better? He is going to tally our progress quarterly and the person who has managed to exercise the most number of times in that span will get a prize! I'm not usually much of a New Year's resolution person but I think that this is worth a shot. I guess this year is different because I also have a few other goals for 2009 that I'm hoping to write about in the near future ... one of them tomorrow.
So, wish me luck as I embark on the "Kirkland Family Fitness Challenge" and beat the socks off the rest of those suckers!!! Nothing like a little healthy competition to get me motivated.
