Looking for an exercise/accountability buddy...

Ok, I can do this....but I am looking for someone who would like to partner with me as I make my life adjustments. I work fulltime, volunteer, and have a beautiful 1-yr-old granddaughter that I watch 3 evenings a week. After work my husband is busy volunteering as a firefighter/EMT and has a crazy schedule. I don't know but I seem to just keep making excuses. Too busy, too tired, too much work to do around the house, I could go on...but I finally realized I need to make my health a priority. I am tired of feeling 'tired' and also depressed when I see pictures of myself. There is a fun-loving, funny person in here that people enjoy being around and I need to take responsibility for my well-being. I remember how much better I felt when I ate better and was active. I want that again!

If you are looking for someone to encourage you along the way let me know, as I'm sure we could help each other out. Smile

HI and Welcome! We have an active group of women who are dedicated to lifetime fitness on our Exercise and Healthy Living board that would probably make great workout/accountability partners for you.

I agree with the lady who posted about the exercise board. I don't post there often but do drop in and read their daily threads. They are amazing.
