Fat Bottomed Girls!

This song is on my walking play list. 

"Fat bottomed girls, you make the rockin' world go round." 

By the way, be careful Googling this song title!

Gotta love Queen. 

Today, my friend in Utah posted her walking stats on Facebook today and mentioned again that I inspired her.  This is new to me.  And very humbling.

I have never felt like an inspiration.  I try to be a good person and a kind person.  When I started my plan for this year it was all about proving to myself that I could do it.  In the last ten days I have done something every day which is now about five days longer than any other exercise routine I have committed to.

My friend told me about an app for my phone that I really like called "Runkeeper".  I like that it tracks my route and gives me updates every five minutes.  This has given me an easy way to track.  I have started walking as far as I can for a set number of minutes and am working up to an hour walk, slowly.   Plus my husband loves looking at the GPS feature and seeing where I've been.

I am getting faster.  After only ten days I am seeing a difference in how I feel.  Now my friend has become an inspiration for me.  I see her daily posts, read her blog and know that I need to post too.  I need to keep pushing myself the way she is pushing herself. 

We need to inspire each other!  We need to start an exercise revolution.  

So I am starting one. 

The Fat Bottomed Girls!  Let's make this rockin' world go round.  If you are on RunKeeper join my street team.  I want to see how many people we can get moving.  One day at a time.

Thanks Michelle for your inspiration!  Even a time zone away you are getting me off my fat bottom!
