Some advice from SP

Monday, September 17, 2012

I found this on an email today and it struck home. I"m lazy today and was excited when I woke up to raindrops. Then I read this:

Find a workout partner. It is much harder to talk yourself out of a workout when you know someone else is counting on you.

I called my biking buddy and we are planning to ride later; after the rain clears out. It's not on the weather map so we figured it would not last long.

Thanks SP! You gave me the kick-in-the-rear that I needed.

    My son in the bitter cold of winter stopped going to the gym. So finally he asked a friend to email him that he would see him bright and early at the gym but the friend didn't have to go. The thought of letting his friend down got my son back on track.

Buddies are the best. I hope you got your ride in.

    I used to have a bike. I was at WalMart the other day and they have bikes on sale. I guess it is time for me to get back on the bike and do something good for me. Thanks for the reminder
