Friendly Competition

It started with golf balls.  I decided that I wanted to lose 20 pounds by the time July came around the first of May.  My brother-in-law (Nate) decided to do a support system and join me.  It's been going good.  I'm seven golf balls down.  The move has been rather hard and stressful on me.  I haven't worked out like I had in the past and I still hadn't dropped all of the baby weight.  This past week I started Insanity and jump-roping to help become active again.  This golf ball thing, this was not a challenge.
But then Nate decided to challenge me, on my birthday, to a double under or double jump challenge.  He told me to YouTube Buddy Lee and then watch and learn how to do a double jump.  Then, knowing I'm competitive, told me his record for double unders is 33, and told me I couldn't beat it.  I hate being told I can't do something.

So I started trying the double under last Saturday.  I got 7 in a row on my first day.  I figure by the time I get back from my vacation in August I will have that record smashed!  

I really only have a small competitive side in me.
