In the past I've been one of those people who would read tweets or Facebook updates about people exercising and roll my eyes so hard they'd nearly fall out of my head. I get that when you're not that interested in it, it can come across as self indulgent showing off.
And yet I share every Runkeeper update as I go these days, regardless of knowing it is probably causing eye injuries all over the place.
This is why.
Now that we're seven weeks in to #OperationMOVE, exercise has become very much a habit for me. Part of my daily routine. But to start with it was much harder to find the motivation, and some days the only thing that got me off my bum was feeling like my fellow Movers were holding me accountable.
Now that it IS part of my everyday I have no shame in saying that part of my sharing is because I am proud of myself. Damn straight I am! At 36 I am running for the first time in my life. I am getting stronger and fitter with every kilometre and it is hard earned!
Of course the other reason is to hopefully remind and inspire the rest of our crew to keep moving too. Because if I can ANYONE can.
I've noticed the tweetstream has been a little quieter of late and wondered if that is because people are losing interest, not moving as much or just not in the mood to share what they are doing...
How about you? Are you still moving? Do you shout it loud and proud or are you a quiet achiever?
