A key to sticking to a fitness plan and getting fit is to do fitness together. Having an accountability partner has been shown to be a key to overall sustained health and fitness.
We were never meant to do life on our own. Back at Creation in Genesis, God said it wasn’t good that man should be alone. When God ordered Noah to build the ark, He told him to take TWO of every kind of animal along for the ride 🙂 I believe our fitness journey is no different. We need a friend, a community to do this fit life with. We are better if we do fitness together.
I have been blessed to be a part of some great groups of people who have supported and encouraged me along the way.

But isn’t it so much easier to just do the plan that worked for your friend or your co-worker or that girl on social media?
Keep your eyes on your own paper.
I’ve written about this before. To be sure, it is a foundation to my beliefs and my coaching, and I feel like it is time to revisit it. So how do we deal with disappointment and frustration when it doesn’t seem like our plan is working?
Jump on the latest bandwagon that’s going by? Follow the plan that your friend started back in January?

Self-care? But that’s selfish, right? I’m a mom and a wife. Time for me. Not a chance.
Taking care of you is taking care of them.
“Do you not know that your body is a temple?” (I Corinthians 6:19) It’s straight from scripture. Our bodies, yes the body you’re living in whether you’re happy with it or not, IS a temple.
The first question is “have you asked Christ to take up residence there?” This is the most important decision you will ever make. It is your number one priority in life.
But then after that, we must care for this temple. We must be a good steward of what we’ve been given. We must keep it clean and in good working condition. How do we do that? We must care for it.
