If you regularly win your FitBit group challenges, you need to leave. Seriously, I want to get to know you better but this post is not the post. This is not our day.
If, however, you are consistently in last place and feel like your friends really only invite you so they can feel like demigods in their challenges? Keep reading. We’re basically best friends and should form our own less-than-mediocre challenges; I’m 100% okay with alternating trophies.
I’m the group FitBit loser. I did beat out my friends once on a weekend challenge while volunteering at a high school retreat. While everyone else was enjoying a small group session indoors, my girls and I were on a nature walk to get closer with God (and the weekend step victory). My girls and I did end up having some pretty great talks but even with the 30-60 minute head start, it came down to a sprint off to midnight. I ended up winning by a step or two and the bragging rights were almost worth not being able to walk the next day.
So, no, my personal goals are no where near 10,000 steps. And it kills the former athlete in me to admit that. You really wouldn’t be able to recognize her anyway though so I’m too worried about it. She ate Wendy’s before basketball games, for heaven’s sake. She was NOT that cool.
I’m more of a 2,000 steps / day challenger. And I’m hoping to keep it up for a solid 30 day streak. I’m turning 30 this month so I figured it was a good a time as any to kick off a series of 30 challenges for myself!
Let the year of 30 begin!
Tomorrow …just kidding
I was really tempted to blow it off (there are 31 days in May, after all) but Freddy encouraged me to go and he got the whole family prepped to do it with me! He even waited at the end of the driveway until I could get the mapmyrun app downloaded. Running with a 3 year old laughing the whole way? It’s the BEST! And it surprisingly did not feel that long.
I’m going to go ice my knees now.
