I make an endeavor to walk 2 miles every day that I am not going to the gym. Sometimes due to major feet and knee problems I may only get to do 1 mile. My walk involves steep uphill roads as I live in the mountain area of BC.

seriously - get a dog along the lines of a border collie or standard poodle - the einsteins of the canine world. you MUST walk them twice a day - such high-energy dogs require a minimum 45min walk a day PLUS they need exercise (walking is *so* not "exercise" for these breeds!) and then they need jobs - that means you need to train them.
you'll be moving and shaking in spite of yourself!
the caveat is that if you try to skive off on the walking, they'll usually demo your house and be a total pita until you get it in gear.
If your friends aren't with you, do it in spite of them!
My husband refuses to exercise with me. My daughter is obese but refuses to deal with it... I'm losing weight on SP in spite of them. DH has 3 flavours of ice cream on hand, salted cashews, candy... I ask him to keep it out of my sight but sometimes he forgets and I slip up... but darn it all, I'm going to succeed in spite of them, because I matter!205
