I don’t know what I’d do nor how much I’d weigh without my accountability buddies. Let me begin by saying I’m a very lazy, unmotivated individual when it comes to going to the gym or working out. Even when I get to the gym, I usually don’t put forth too much effort, just enough to break a sweat and for at least 30 minutes. Otherwise I’m basically done. Without my husband Vince who motivates me to practice seven star praying mantis style kung fu as much as I can, I’d likely just be a couch potato which is what I was prior to marital arts. I was also about 15 pounds heavier and had no muscle. Without my awesome friend and ex coworker Sarah, I would likely never go running. We run once a week, usually anywhere from 4 to 7 miles, outside until recently when I joined the same gym as her where there’s a great track to run on.
Without these wonderful accountability buddies, I would likely never run nor work out at all. They give me so much motivation and make me wonder how people find motivation without someone else working out with them. Even when Sarah is busy or Vince is sick, I find myself still exercising out of habit. I am thankful for them instilling good habits in me. And here’s to hoping I don’t eat too much this holiday season so that I don’t have to run even more miles to make up for it. 🙂
