On the back of my last blog....my friend who has her new attitude to life and is now 'sporty' heard I was going on a hike today with a mutual friend. I was so impressed when she activly contacted me yesterday to ask if she could join. This is so unlike her, as usually she waits to be asked, and honestly, I could never see her out in the mud and cold walking in the wald in winter. But at 12:00 today she proved me wrong and to my surprise actually set the pace for most of the hike...and she said she wasnt sporty!!
On a more personal level this has been motivating for me for two reasons. Firstly, it is so much more enjoyable being able to do this kind of exercise with the people I enjoy spending time with as it kills two birds with one stone, exercise AND being able to hang out with the girls. Secondly, it keeps me on my toes, since if she has taken this up because she thinks im sporty, it makes me feel accountable to keep this up, and to make sure its a culture in my circle of friends rather than just letting it be a phase that we go through while we are in the 'new years' flurry of resolutions and goals.
