So in November my dear friend from work and I decided that we should walk the stairs during lunch to get some exercise and to get out of our seats for a few minutes each day. It’s good exercise because it doesn’t take long but you can feel the benefits. A short time later we both came down with colds that forced us to take a break from our climb but we both resolved to get back to it as soon as we were healthy. In the meantime she was diagnosed with exercise/cold induced asthma. I didn’t ask for a doctor’s note but I gave her the benefit of the doubt that she could opt-out of our daily ascension.

Although I lost my stair partner I still had every intention of continuing when I was healthy again. (Notice I used the past tense in that sentence.) In order to keep me on track I decided to set a daily reminder to pop up just before lunch so I couldn’t use the “I forgot” excuse. Well it is now April and every day I “dismiss” my pop-up reminder without actually doing it. At this point it’s mocking me. Taunting me.  Laughing at me that I have no will power. To prove it wrong I’ve decided I’m not giving in. I’ll show that reminder who’s boss! I’m too stubborn strong to give in to peer pressure!
