My True Gym Buddy

Berg: Ashley, what are you doing here?

I’ve been really enjoying hanging out with Outdoor Girl. I’ve wanted a gym buddy or girl friend I can be active with, and she definitely is. We have been IMG00070going on weekly walks, and now she’s started going to the gym with me. It’s great to have a friend to motivate me when I don’t feel like working out.
Sunday we got together for our weekly walk, and then she helped me dye my hair. I went a shade darker than last time. What do you think? Don’t mind the fact that it’s a complete mess today. Just look at the color!  I love how they put so many vitamins for hair in the dyes now. My hair feels all soft and smooth. I was glad she was there to help me with it, because I am seriously clumsy and girl challenged. I would have gotten hair dye all over my face, I just know it!

We’re going to the gym again tonight, and I’m hoping to get on a regular workout schedule. Match is good about going with me, but it’s nice to have someone that does all of the same exercises as me. Match goes off and does his weights, but I need a cardio buddy! Plus the time flies when you work out with a friend. I love that Outdoor Girl actually works hard when we work out too, unlike Drama Chick who would want to do 20 minutes of easy bike pedaling and then call it a day! What about you all? Do you prefer to work out with a buddy or solo?

    Hi Date Girl! I’m popping over from SITS …

    I totally want to tell you that I like to work out with a buddy, except I don’t!

    For me, they’re either too little or too much, never evenly matched.

    I dunno! I do Hot Yoga which is hard as H*ll! (hot as h*ll too!) …in a roomful of people, does that count?

    I’m happy for you that you’ve found a great workout buddy though!

    I used to do Bikram yoga, and it was so much fun. I got such a great workout, but it’s so expensive around here! Plus my psycho ex goes to the studio I used to go to-not exactly a relaxing experience when the ex is there leering at you!!

    Hi Date Girl! I’m popping over from SITS.

    I wish I could tell you that I like to work out with a buddy, except I don’t!

    They’re either too little or too much for me, never very evenly matched.

    I dunno. I go to Hot Yoga which is hard as H*ll! (hot as h*ll too!) …in a roomful of people. Does that count?

    I’m glad for you that you’ve found someone to work out with though!

    Happy day!!

    HOW nice to have a buddy! Man, I have friends but no one ever works out with me. Gonna have to convince some gals to do some classes after I pop….which will hopefully be soon.

    I love having a gym buddy that does the same stuff as I do. I’m doing many more classes at my gym and we have a small group that have all become friends in there. Fun stuff.

    Stopping over from SITS. Blessings!

    I prefer to work out at home, alone. I like Pilates and seriously need to start it again but, hey, baby is just turning three months so I don’t feel too bad about it yet! 😉

    …when you feel like you are getting sick, take a baking soda bath. Seriously. Use a whole box. Crazy but it works!

    I totally agree…it’s nice having someone there to motivate you to work out! I wish my best friend lived closer to me so she could be my gym buddy.

    Very cute blog! Just stopping through from SITS!
