SOS: Day 22
Assemble a crew.
I already addressed gathering with like-minded souls when it comes to creativity (Create: Day 13), but what about healthy living pals? Research suggests the support of others helps. Have you joined a gym? For most people, it makes a world of difference.
Not for me. I like to huddle down in my bete noire basement and get on the treadmill next to the spiders and mice. A gym is not my style. After all, who would let me in wearing my cockatoo-shredded jammies (oops…I was supposed to stop wearing those on Day 2, wasn’t I?)?
I’ve found other ways of joining up, and you can to. My cousins and I have a fitness blog on which we give ourselves tasks and award prizes. Recently I joined a three-woman team in my home town. Whichever team increases fitness the most wins $1000 (based on weight, body fat measurements, heart rate). If you’re a cyberspace-socializer, there are wonderful online services.You’ve got nothing to lose ( except weight), for instance, by joining the free, wildly popular Sparkpeople.
