It’s the Birthday that keeps on ticking! If you’ve followed me lately, you will know I recently had a milestone birthday. It was one that I dreaded, but I have made peace with it now and it’s probably one of the best I’ve ever had. It will be remembered forever in my fondest memories.
Two of my close friends helped me celebrate again this week with a quiet little breakfast for three and showered me with more gifts. As I was sorting through them when I returned home, I noticed a pattern!

For the first time I am joining in on the Pink Saturday event. You may see another pattern ~~ the gifts revolve around working out. My friend Cindy and I have worked out together for many years. This past fall we convinced Susan to join us. The three of us
complain smile through a Step Aerobics class three days a week. Cindy and I participate in a Body Pump class two days a week.

The secret to sticking with an exercise program?? Get a friend to join you! Not only is it fun to have friends in class, it really makes you stay with it when you have an accountability partner. If one of us misses, you can bet there will be an email, text or a phone call probably before breakfast wondering where the other was. When the alarm goes off, you really don’t consider shutting it off and skipping class. It’s easier to get up and go than to have to come up with an excuse for why you didn’t go! :) You’ll have someone to answer to. Honestly it works! If you have not had any luck exercising on a regular basis, find someone who has been wanting to get started too and you will have a much better success rate!
It doesn’t hurt to have cute little pink socks with birds on them!
Let me know if you find a friend to work out with. I hope this helps you to stay with it!
Getting in shape is empowering! Try my method of sticking with it!
