For one month, from November 16th - December 16th, CB and I are going to compete in a challenge against each other. The motivation behind this challenge stems from our upcoming trip to Vegas on December 17th for my birthday. You see, I've never been to Vegas before, and CB is taking me there for my 29th birthday.
He's somewhat of a Vegas expert, traveling there to compete in countless poker tournaments back in the day. He used to play, and even beat, the best of the best in poker. That really impresses me, seeing as I have no idea how to play any table games and stay away from them with the same diligence that I stay away from Northpark Mall the week before Christmas.
My mom -- hi mom! -- actually just returned from a trip to Vegas where she won two free nights at The Signature at MGM Grand, and was kind enough to gift them to us for our trip! So we'll be there Thursday and Friday, then staying at a newer hotel, The Linq, on Saturday. I've already been feverishly googling and pinteresting everything and anything there is to do and see in Vegas. Please, please, please hit me with your suggestions on can't-miss, Vegas fun!
Back to our challenge. As you may remember, before I met CB I had been very serious about my fitness and eating healthy. The more we started dating, the more fun we started having, and the less effort I made to get to the gym. I really just wanted to spend all of my free time with him, and honestly still do even today. CB is in the same boat. He was working out before he met me, and it all pretty much just fell by the wayside.
We've both decided it's time to get serious again, but need some extra motivation. I came up with the idea of creating a gym challenge for the two of us. Whoever has the higher number of trips to the gym -- minimum stay of 30 minutes -- wins. The loser then has to take the winner out to dinner one of the nights in Vegas.
As added motivation for myself, I also joined a Dietbet game that starts on Tuesday. I've had a ton of success doing Dietbet in the past, and I'd love it if you'd come join me! We can cheer each other along.
Speaking of cheering along, I hope you'll cheer me on to a win against CB. The man beats me in everything, and I am DETERMINED to win this one. I might be determined, but it never hurts to have a little support from your girlfriends. Heck, I think that's why I did so well last time I began a fitness routine! Starting Monday, I'll be snapchatting my check-ins at the gym, as well as the scoreboard as we go along.
LET'S GO TEAM SARAH!!!!
