Join Me {Health and Happiness}

In college I hit the gym pretty regularly and was pretty healthy. As soon as I started working, I really struggled with making time for exercise every day. I noticed my body changing and so I joined a 12 week challenge at the gym I went to. I figured that my competitive nature would motivate me to make big changes so that I would see a big difference. I even spent quite a big chunk of money on a personal trainer.


Long story short, I learned (very quickly) that I don't do personal trainers. I felt pushed into making changes, I felt judged, and I honestly do not like people telling me what to do. I didn't make or see many changes and I was resistant at every turn. Now, that I'm a bit older and still struggling to make some changes, I want support but I don't want authoritative support. I want friendship, support, and accountability. Every group I see that offers this is run on Facebook. Groups of women get together....they are sharing tips, recipes, workouts, and sharing their struggles as well. They help one another along a journey to being healthier. I don't have Facebook (and won't get Facebook) so I continually miss out on these opportunities.

I've decided to start my own group and I have some big plans in mind. This group will be a private group on Google+. Don't let Google+ scare you, it's really easy to navigate and use--and I can help you if you need it.

I'd love for you to join. I have some awesome ideas for recipe swaps, themes, positive discussions, and more! If you are interested please comment with your email address or send me an email at mynewlinesblog@gmail.com and I'll get this group started.
