The Race is On!

Throughout this journey I’ve been so motivated to move and be successful. I’ve had folks cheering from the sidelines really happy to see me reach my goals. What I have noticed lately is that, as I begin to buy new clothing and my look is a bit different, others want to get on board with me. Folk are buying pedometers, walking on their breaks, doing the electric slide, walking in place as well as changing their diet and I’m like, “Man! Folk are serious! Are these folk challenging me?” I will say that the challenge feels good.

My mom is a recent convert and she is asking questions along the way and walking along with me. Here is how are conversations have been going lately and I love it!

Mom:  How many steps do you have?

Toni:  Well Ma, it’s 8:00am I’m just getting up. There are 11 steps between my bed and my bathroom.

Mom:  I’ve got 3,000 already.

Toni:  Way to go ma! I’ll get there.

12:00pm

Mom:  How many steps do you have?

Toni:  Ma, I’m busy at work, but I have about 2,257.

Mom:  I have 7,200 and Grandma has 9,834.

Toni:  Way to go, Ma. I’ll get there.

5:00pm

Mom:  How many steps do you have?

Toni:  Ma, not as many as you.

Mom:  I know 11,000 steps, Baby….BAM!

Toni:  The night isn’t over. I’ll check in later…LOL

I mean she is really taunting me with these steps! She loves the pedometer that she got for Christmas and I swear that she is sleepwalking, but hey, if it get her moving then I’m excited!

So just when I thought that I could maybe relax a little, not only is Roizen checking in but so is Mom. So with that said…..we’re off!
