Sugars contest and a Challenge

Awhile back Sugar had a contest to win some running clothing from Roadrunner Sports. We entered it and we won. So after carefully going over the selection 87 times, she ordered a nice selection of tops, some tanks and shorts for her exercise program. The clothing is a really nice light fabric and my Mom loves them and she would highly recommend them. Thanks Sugar.
Awhile back Stanley and Murphy's mom started a food blog to help her be accountable. My mom thought that it was a great idea and so she started one too. My mom is using hers for being accountable for exercise. I know that it is really helping my mom alot.  About a week mom got a Fitbit from Aunt Linda.
She just loves it and is getting 87 zillion steps in and recording all her calories. Do any of your moms have a Fitbit? My mom is trying to get into running. Now she hates to why does she want to run? I have no clue but she says that she always admires those that do run so she wants to do a race in October in San Antonio. I must say that she is working very hard at it. At first she was dying running a min (I thought I was going to hafta paw 911) and now she is doing several minutes.

Now...comes the challenge. My mom talked to Stanley and Murphy's mom and challenged her to see who can get the most steps and who can burn the most calories this coming Thursday and she has accepted the challenge!!
Now the Mayors mom is a runner but on Thursday there is no running for either one of them. They  have to be creative on doing things to get their steps in and burn those calories. We don't want to you to choose sides but you might have your ideas of who you think might win. Never fear....I will be nipping on the heals of my Moms feets!!

The challenge starts at Thursday morning at 12:01 until 12:00 midnight and my mom is a night owl!! bol On Friday they will post what they did, their step count and the calories burned on their weight blogs. The looser has to buy the other one lunch at our retreat next summer. Here are our blogs to check on Friday.
Stanley and Murphys moms is 10 Again

May the best stepper win!!


  1. this is a close one!!! As soon as Mama gets back home from her road trip she is going to ramp up her steps too!!! (She left her fitbit home)
    Good luck to your Mama!!!

  2. Dat are pawsome of your momma. My momma does Jillian Michaels videos all da time - she says dey are a tuff workout, but I wouldn't know since I nap while she does em.

  3. Hmmmmmmmm. SHE thinks fun and run should never appear in the same sentence...and loves the poster "Exercise.....I thought you said Extra Fries." Good luck to both Mommas.

  4. Well all I can say is just make sure all this exercising doesn't distract either Moms from their true vocation of pandering to your every whim.
    I am thinking your Mom's should categorise their steps into 'dog-related' and 'not dog-related' and the there should also be a prize for the Mom that scores the highest ratio of dog / non dog steps. Is there an app on the Fitbit that can calculate this? If not, someone needs to invent one!
    Toodle pip!
    PS May the best Mom win!

  5. We applaud your mom, Oreo! This is just awesome!

    Love ya lots♥

  6. We are cheering your mom on for the step contest.

    Our Aunt C has a fitbit and loves it. She makes sure she gets her 10 000 steps every day.

    Lady also hates running. That is ok because she LOVES walking.

  7. If she wants to have an incentive to run, just have her enter a certain event in Pamplona, Spain.

  8. we have our paws crossed you both do well

  9. BRavo to your mom for getting fit! our mom needs to get more exercise too
    We will cheer you both on!

  11. Our mom is very proud of the accomplishments your mom has made. Isn't that a cool thing about Blogville? Now of course you know that my mom not being allowed to run is like tying her shoelaces together and yelling "Fire!". Anyway, we hope none of us doggies suffer!

    Your Pals,

    Murphy & Stanley

  16. Mom had seen the Doods Mom's blog...and was wondering who's was Keep Calm, Eat she knows! Mom has a fitbit, too! She had a ChargeHR and she loves it. LIke your Mom's she is also trying to lose a bit of weight...about 15 pounds...and now you've both got her thinking of making a dedicated blog for accountability reasons, too!

    Good luck to the both of you on this challenge! Can't wait to see the final results and just how you both did it.
