Accountability, anyone?

Good Monday afternoon, everyone.  Is it pouring down outside your window like it is mine?  Cozy and dreary all at the same time. 

I am writing/blogging (feels like I am writing an email) to ask if anyone out there would like to be my exercise accountability partner.  I have cancelled my gym membership because we signed Ada up for ballet, and I would rather her to do that and put my gym money in savings rather than join another gym (I wasn't thrilled with the childcare situation at the gym where I was going, and I am trying my best not to join another one).  All of that to say it is so hard for me to motivate myself to work out at home.  Exercise is so essential for my mental health--it is amazing the difference in my mood when exercising regularly vs. little or no exercise, but for some reason, it's the hardest thing in the world to make myself stick the dvd in the dvd player.  I think the gym works because people know if I haven't been there.  The lady at childcare would actually say, "I haven't seen you in a while," and that is all I needed to hear to get my rear end in gear.  No one is holding me accountable inside these four walls. there anyone out there who also wants to exercise and needs accountability?  If so, please email me--lbrmooreatgmaildotcom (insert symbols for me for at and dot).  I already emailed two of my friends here, but I thought it might be even more beneficial if there was someone who also wanted to be held accountable for exercise...just email me...or even leave a comment, either way.

wish we lived closer and we could run together. I'm running 4 days a week and if you want to run, I can keep you accountable. Also, if you want to run- join to log your miles. It is like facebook but for exercising. If we are "friends" on it i can see how many exercises you have logged and post encouraging comments! :) Just a suggestion. I'm totally addicted and have been logging miles since January 1st.
