Since I started my Gym Pact I’ve been going to the gym 3 times a week consistently. Now, I’m upping my game, thanks to my friend Candace.
That’s Candace and I from the night we went ice skating in December. She doesn’t know that she is on the blog today… she’ll find out later. ;)
Candace is a great friend and I love when we hang out because we usually do active things together – ice skating, running, etc.
The Workout Streak Idea
A few days ago I texted her about starting to run again. I stopped after the race I was training for was cancelled and we went through a spell of cold weather, and it felt like time to start again.
I realized she was so, so right about have to start over again and how much hard it was every time. I know running will be harder to pick up again after a month and a half of not running, which is why I should not have stopped!
After thinking about it for all of five minutes I decided I was in! Candace felt crummy over the weekend and couldn’t run but I hit the gym yesterday to start my streak and she will be joining me this week.
The 100 Day Workout Streak
This week officially begins out 100 day workout streak! I will be on day 2 today and plan to hit the gym after leaving work. Luckily my gym is in-between my work space and my house so it’s a convenient stop on my way home.
As far as workout rest days – meh! I placed way too much importance on these in the past. There is no day where I need to sit around and do nothing. None! At the very least I need to go on a 30 minute walk which will count and will probably be my workout on days where I have sore muscles.
This streak is built upon the idea that a body in motion stays in motion – and that’s what I want to do. Stay in motion. Stay active.
I’m super excited to be doing this and glad I have a real life friend doing it as well. If you’d like to join us we’d love to have you! I plan on reporting in every week on my progress with the workout streak and share what I did. You can share your workouts then too!
Happy working out!
