friends with benefits

Standard

the title is not referring to the justin timberlake movie that was almost the exact same as the “no strings attached” ashton kutcher movie. i’m talking about a friend to help get your body looking good. if it leads to other kinds of benefits, well good for you!

these past two weeks one of my best friends and i have been working out together almost every day. it has made my workouts more entertaining and more accountable. no way in hell am i going to be the lazy friend.

keys to finding a good workout buddy include finding someone who has a positive attitude. a previous workout buddy constantly complained about things making me question if i was enjoying myself or not.

also, find someone with a similar schedule. my friend and i sit down on sundays to plan our workout “dates” for the week.

another key to having a great workout buddy is to have someone to make you laugh. you’ll burn extra calories!

food- keep a food journal and exchange it weekly with your buddy, knowing they will see it will make you more aware of what you eat if you know someone will see!

fitness- try these exercises out with your new workout bud!

fun- sit back and relax after all that working out and go check out a movie!

About collegegirlfit

I am a senior strategic communications student at Oklahoma State University. I will be a fifth-year senior next year. Yay, victory lap! I am a member of the OSU pom squad, which is what inspired my blog. We have to wear shirts exposing our core on a weekly basis, so not being fit is not an option. I hope to share my experiences with making the transition from a high school girl with a metabolism that let me eat anything under the sun, to a college student that actually has to watch what I eat and drink.
