Fitness Friday: with a little help from my friends

I need a little help from my friends.

Everyone reading these weekly posts is helping me on my journey to better health. Each one of you who makes a comment to share advice or offer encouragement is helping me stay motivated.

My best friend and I created our own private Facebook group. Within that group, we share successes and challenges. She holds me accountable. Knowing that she is waiting to read my updates helps me stay on track. When I tell her that I walked instead of driving or chose veggies over cookies, she gives my post a like or a sticker. No accomplishment is too small to inspire us to cheer each other on.

If you are trying to live healthier, get a little help from your friends.

  1. I think exercising at a gym encourages me to exercise. I look for others I know there and we keep up with each other’s news. I’ve learned to join classes too. I find Zumba fun even though I can’t keep up with all the steps. 😉


  2. Having a support network definitely helps with any major change that you are trying to make. My health journey is supported by my family and friends and by my network of health professionals. In relation to physical health, I see my GP and exercise physio regularly for help with pacing and slowly creating an exercise regime which is beneficial, and see my specialists a few times a year at least to work through larger concerns like medications and long term goals.

    My most recent focus is on my desire to have children some time soon so most of my appointments and discussions with friends and family are spent talking about what sort of support systems I need to have in place for that to happen.


What do you have to say about that?
