The Strange Idea

I know there are a ton of fitness blogs out there. At least I'm sure there are, I honestly didn't actually look. I'm sure they're put up by people who know more about it than I do and who are probably in better shape than I am. But I wasn't interested in someone else telling me the secrets to their amazing body when they have likely never really been overweight to begin with. And I wasn't really looking for someone else to whip me into shape. What I wanted was a place to be accountable for my goals. I want to know think hope that people are out there keeping up with my progress or lack there of. And really that's all I need. Just the thought of someone else knowing that I have slacked off is often enough to keep me from letting things go for too long. I've discovered recently that I have a closet A-type personality and really don't like to cheat, especially if I'm making it public what I'm trying to do.

Now for all of that being about me, I also firmly believe that we do better, we succeed more, in community. If you're like me and just want a place to be kept accountable, to share when things get frustrating, and even to bitch and moan a little when it just sucks to be on this journey, I'd love to have you on board. Share your goals, exercises, recipes, triumphs, setbacks, and anything else you want to share. You can add your two cents in comments or email me with full posts to share with everyone. I would even love to take on team members at some point. I'm really hoping that we get some notice and can include awesome fitness give-aways down the road.

What do you say? Are you up for it?

I'm here for you/with you! I agree that any woman who went from a size 6 to a size 0 doesn't motivate me to do anything more than eat ice cream (or take up skeet shooting, using thin people as targets). But I've lost just over 20 pounds doing Zumba and I plan to keep it going! :)
