Workout buddies?
I just signed up for the "body by glamour" workout plan and was wondering if anyone wanted to sign up for it and be my workout buddy. Or, if you don't want to sign up for it, we could just correspond on this thread. Either way, I'd just love to have some "workout buddies" to keep me on track. I really need to get in shape!

PS. I promise I'm not trying to sell or advertise anything, I really just want some support!

I'm up for some buddy boot camp exercise. I'm usually pretty good about exercising but the weather here has been so hot and humid I don't even want to use my equipment in my exercise room and it's INSIDE! I need a kick in the butt before it gets any bigger .

Yeah, if you go to glamour.com and click on the health tab, there is a link to the program, and yes it's free. I've already done my excercise routine once, and I just signed up about an hour ago.

It even has a thing where you can enter in your goal so you can keep track of it. I really just need to get in some sort of shape before going back to school, the walks back and forth across campus are killer if you're not in shape, it's literally uphill both ways! Plus I live on the third floor of my building!

I have been looking at the Body by Glamour workout since last year and I actually just started going to the gym.
Mind if I just just post here with you guys?

I went and worked out with a personal trainer last week and almost died the next couple days I was so sore.
Yesterday I went to my first class for "abs and back" and it was great!

Lol! Think vaccuming counts as cardio?

I chose to focus on my arms and shoulders, I have NO upper body strength!

Hi! I've been working out on and off again for awhile. I lost 20 pounds thru hard work after DD2 but half of it has creeped back on since the start of this year. So last week I re-dedicated myself to working out regularly and eating better (and have already seen a bit of improvement in the way my shorts fit). Anyways, I thought I'd try out having online buddies this time. I'm not much for a true in-the-gym workout buddy -- not very chatty and just like to get in, work hard and get out -- but I think an online group would work and maybe keep me focused. So I'm giving the BBG a go....I signed up as lucky_alf2 there as well but it says I can't log any workout info until next Monday -- bummer, but oh well. I'm planning to go swim at the gym today -- so now it's in writing I better go do it

Adri
