Virtual gym buddies

In a previous post I talked about how I needed and wanted to go to the gym and how I just could not motivate myself to go. I received a sweet post from fellow blogger Ashley from Breakfast at Saks who actually encouraged me to start going to the gym on Monday as she was going to start going on Monday. She mentioned in her post that we could encourage one another. I thought this was really awesome that she took time to send me a note about going to the gym and I found it so motivating. I followed up with her on twitter and will be sure to check in with her every now and then to see her progress and be sure to share mine.

Monday, March 8, 2010-(also known as my first day back to the gym)
Yesterday was sunny and a high of 60 degrees! After work I walked outside and almost jumped for joy except I would have looked like a wacko jacko. Polo and I went for a long walk and then I high-tailed it to the gym before I lost motivation. I worked out for over an hour and felt so good about it. Sadly, my schedule does not permit me to go to the gym today so I am hoping that some of my new found virtual gym buddies will send encouragement and hold me accountable.

I find that music is so motivating at the gym. Right now my favorites to listen to are Lady Gaga and Britney Spears. I have always listened to Britney Spears, particularly the Blackout Album, while working out. The upbeat tunes keep me in a good mood and make the time fly. I also want to carry a notepad with me because I think of fun blog posts while I am jogging but I have yet to try that out yet. I often lack coordination so I doubt that I would be successful jotting down blog ideas while trying to stay upright on the elliptical machine.

How do you stay motivated to exercise? Do you have a playlist on your ipod? Please share!

Luv & Smiles,

Britney Spears is the best to work out to! I also love Lady Gaga and Beyonce, they pump me up. I'm so proud of you for going to the gym yesterday, I'm about to elliptical right now :)
