What friends are for....

Today was the first day of summer science camp. It was fun! I think it went really well and that they have already made an impression on the kids. I guess the true test will be to see how many come back tomorrow. After it was over today, we continued to work until 8pm getting ready for tomorrow. When I left, all I wanted to do was come home and lay down on the couch and go to sleep. I was exhausted!!!!

But...My friend, Sadie, and I have made a pact to work out together for the next couple weeks. We have started a routine where one of us does a Wii Biggest Loser workout while the other one rides the stationary bike, then we switch. Tonight, when all I wanted to do was crawl into bed, Sadie encouraged me to workout instead. It was a super tough workout and now I feel great. Here it is, midnight and I am bursting with energy. And even though Sadie was feeling a little under the weather today, she also pushed through and worked out.

This is why having a workout buddy is so awesome. Neither one of us probably would have worked out today had it not been for the other person pushing them to go for it! I'm really glad we decided to do this...I am so motivated to give it my all when I know that someone else is in the trenches with me!

Also, a few of us came up with a really great idea for when we all get back after summer. We are going to do our very own biggest loser!!! It should be soooo much fun and super motivating. The will be weigh in and prizes and everything! Stay tuned...you may just see a picture of a skinnier me before ya know it!

Have a happy, healthy summer!

I just stumbled on your blog. I so know what you mean about 'not working out without a partner'. If it weren't for the fact that my mother has become really into 'exercise' and 'walking every single day for at least half an hour', I would probably not get any exercise ;)

So cute that y'all are doing your own biggest loser. Good luck :)

My workout buddy quit on me and ever since she did I stopped working out. So yes, workout buddies are essential when you lack that motivation, which I sure do.
