Incentives

Bj and I were discussing ways we could get into better shape, and have decided we need incentives.

Bj: "Okay so how about this? You get down to 120 and you can have $X for the craft room."
(I want new cabinets in here)

Amber: "Ugh, 120, that's like 20 pounds."

Bj: "You've weighed that before."

Me: "I weighed 110 when you met me."

Bj: "I can't believe you were ever that small."

Me: ____________

Bj: "Wait no, you're taking that the wrong way."

Me: "How is the right way to take that."

Bj: "I mean you've always only been this tall." (holds hand up to his neck).

Me: (mimes digging a hole).

It is so on!

  3. Last time I weighed 120 I think I was a freshman in high school.

  4. that’s too funny! you go. and get those cabinets!

  5. *lol* My hubby and I were just having a conversation very similar to yours last night. I told him I had to ease into this…..you know maybe buy a workout outfit…and a sports bra…then I’ll THINK about it. Its enough in my day to watch 3 kids, when I’m not on kid duty, house duty, accountant, laundry etc..I want to play with fiber, not sweat and stink! But *Grin* I’ll cheer you all on! (Until I can’t button my jeans…then I’ll join the crowd!)

  6. And what is Bj going to get down to? You can’t be the only one in the relationship forced to do this!

  7. You had a baby. What’s his excuse?
    The weather is on your side this week. Go Team Amber Lee!

  8. Aren’t guys great when they say stuff and are clueless?!?!
    We’ll have to go walking this summer–the kids LOVE bush park

  9. The last time I weighed 120 let alone 110 was when I was tutu’s age…I digress, if you need any ideas, pointers, advice, coxing etc. you let me know. Just keep walking and drinking water….the water in a diet coke doesn’t count.
