They say that one of the main things needed in losing weight and exercising is getting a buddy to do it with you. A friend and I started using the MyFitnessPal app again this week. It has helped us keep each other encouraged, and it makes us hold ourselves accountable for the amount of calories we take in a day. I have another friend with whom I walk with daily, (or TRY to). She is the one who got me motivated, about 2 years ago, in taking better care of myself – making some lifestyle changes. For me, that’s a lot of what it was about when I turned 40. Not so much losing weight, (although I DEFINITELY needed to), but making some lifestyle changes that would make me a healthier me. Where I haven’t been 100% faithful to the “new lifestyle”, I have purposed in my heart to change that in 2016 – to devote myself into getting fit in EVERY way.
