Yes, nutrition and exercise are absolutely CRUCIAL to your journey. Without proper, sustainable eating habits and consistent exercise, true and lasting transformation can’t occur.
But being able to buddy up with someone (or a group) is such an important tool for achieving results like never before.
So, why is buddying up so important after all? Before we get into that, we have a question for you:
When was the last time you said, “I’m going to do (Insert activity here)” but then you didn’t do it?
This activity could have been saving money or cleaning up your bedroom. Or maybe it was exercising and eating healthy.
How many times do you break commitments to yourself? You’re not alone, it’s ok. This is a judgment-free zone!
You do everything within your power to uphold your integrity and the commitments you make to others, but when it comes to keeping commitments to yourself, you struggle.
That’s one reason buddying up is such a great benefit.
Buddying up creates accountability: By buddying up with someone, you are creating a commitment with them. This relationship will help keep you on track with your goals because you are now having to answer to someone. You're going to have even MORE of a reason to do what you say you're going to do, and own it! This helps you build and maintain your personal integrity.
Buddying up helps keep you motivated: Bill Withers sang it best when he said, “We all need somebody to lean on!” Having someone to go to when the going gets rough is priceless. Knowing you can turn to a friend, family member, or acquaintance to help you keep moving towards your goal is everything.Whether it's just checking in to let them know you stayed on track with your workout and eating, or if you're needing a little bit of encouragement or just someone to talk to–your buddy will help you through!
