A little effort suddenly equals a LOT of support! :)

Sunday, January 16, 2011

I have long lamented the fact that most of my friends have no interest in exercising. I've always felt a bit jealous when I'd read blogs or articles where people would say, "oh, ask your girlfriends to join you in an exercise class or invite them to go walking." How many times I've tried and FAILED! :D Even friends that you would think would WANT to do it...like a girlfriend of mine that had Gastric Bypass surgery last year...just don't. She's lost over 100 pounds and is a size 12 now...looks great! But still wouldn't bite when I suggested we walk together. I started to wonder if maybe I need better deodorant or something...hahaha! ;)

Well, I was so delighted when my neighbor friend suggested that she and I work out three times a week at her house...finally...someone to get motivated with and bear accountability to!

But wait...that's not all...if you order within the next few days...hahaha! When it rains, it pours! After she suggested that, another friend suggested Zumba classes at one of the local gyms on Tuesday nights...yay! Then last night, another girlfriend and her family were over for dinner, and she said "I'm gonna try to do the mini in May, wanna go to the training classes with me on Saturday mornings?" So it looks like I'll be running a mini in May, and going to training classes too. YAY!

I'm so excited because I really need the support and all of the options that are becoming available to me are working within my crazy busy schedule too!

Happy happy joy joy! ;)

    See, there's options out there! And now you have multiple people to keep you going, add some friendly competition, and refuse to take no for an answer!

    I am so happy for you. I finally put my journey out there on Facebook so people would know. I listed things I would like to get into and was amazed at the response I got. I know have a tennis coach, a soccer team, a softball team, a C25K partner (several actually) and am still racking up fitness buddies.

    Good for you for finding people to get fit with. Here is to a great year for us all.
