Tuesday Tip!

Did You Know?

You can lose 1/3 more weight if you resolve to exercise with friends!!

What a great excuse to get together with your friends, and get healthy at the same time!

Ideas:
Take a walk after dinner with friends in the neighborhood
Get together and walk your dogs together
Take the kids out for a stroll/nature hike
Get your partner or your friend to join a gym with you
Start taking a weekly exercise class with a friend
Go for a walk at lunch time with co workers
Plan a time once a week to walk, run, bike or whatever with your best friend
Pool your money and hire a personal trainer to help you together
Go to the beach or pool and swim laps together

Having someone to keep you on track is very helpful and effective! Whether it's your husband or wife, daughter or son, friend or neighbor, working together towards the same goal will allow you to help each other out, lean on each other, support and encourage one another!

Any other ideas??

  2. Great ideas! After my surgery I coulnd't run, and had it not been for walking my dogs, I would have put on weight that I really didn't need.

  6. Thanks for visiting my blog too! I have also found that exercising makes you lose more too. If that friend is going to meet you, you know you will show up. You can't talk yourself out of it.

  7. Definately thanks for visiting also! This idea is actually what got me off the couch in the first place! A friend of mine encouraged me to run a 5K in mid-Sept so hopefully I'll get to that point...

    P.S. Your Blog header makes me hungry.

    Get really mad at yourself for going up two sizes in jeans... no better incentive to get out there and exercise!

  13. Those are really wonderful opportunities for extra exercise and time with friends. However, I tend to enjoy the break that exercising on my own offers me. After being a stay-at-home-mom of 5 for the last 22 years and homeschooling for 6+ of those years, I love these moments away. It's so liberating and gives me a chance to hear myself think!

    Thanks for following my blog!
