Yesterday, I met a friend for a morning walk. It was cold out and a little windy; but we went. I had "assumed" we would walk the shorter trail a couple times (one time is a little over a mile). But, she suggested we do the longer (8 mile) trail. We did it!!!
She didn't push me into it. It took the smallest suggestion for me to agree to go the extra distance. This really made me realize what a positive influence other people can be in our fitness journeys. If you are lucky enough to have someone like this that you can count on, embrace it. You can also use the SparkPeople virtual community to help provide you the extra motivation and gently nudge you to do more. I guess I always knew this; but, it really struck me yesterday.
Have a good day, all!
