Fitbits and Brothers and Sisters, Oh MY!
Tuesday, December 31, 2013
I am the oldest child of four. I like calling myself a child because in 2014 I will be 50 (just got my notice to subscribe to AARP!) My siblings and I are, and always have been close. They are my best friends and I am happiest when we are all together. I know how lucky I am!!
One brother lives in NY while the rest of us live in NH. I miss my Red Sox fan in a sea of Yankees...but we talk, text and "tweet" all the time.
The rest of us see eachother regularly. We celebrate every holiday together, have game nights and just seek each other's counsel as we need it.
Oh yeah...and we are all fat.
Tomorrow, New Years Day, we will get together at my Mom's house (except for my NY brother) to celebrate Christmas. My sister and I have the fitbit one. We love them and we created a team/group for just us. Tomorrow, my brother and sister in law will get fitbits.
My mom will serve her ooey gooey mac and cheese and have lots of other decadent food. It makes her happy to feed us....Poor mom....this is going to bum her out!! After we eat, we'll take our "before" pictures. Then we all kick this healthy journey into high gear!!
I love competing in my spark teams (Go Tangies!). I love cheering on my spark teams (Go NH, and 40 somethings walking team!) I love my fitbit teams and the support and competitive nature they bring to my healthy journey. But this....my FAMILY... my heart and soul...THIS should do the trick.
So, tomorrow we eat, we pose, we strap on our fitbits with wild abandon and we stare down those lions, and tigers and bears....I mean cookies and cakes and chips and we WILL win!!!
Happy New Year!
