Like a boss...

As I mentioned previously, I have organized and started a Get Fit Challenge at my office. 19 out of about 70 people in the office signed up. NINETEEN!!!!

Since the challenge has started I have been leading walking groups on lunch hours twice a week and hard core circuit work outs the other 3 days a week. Leading these groups has taught me something about myself...

I like to be the boss.

I like when people follow my lead and when something I put time and effort into organizing goes off without a hitch. And people come to me after and thank me... that is a great feeling.

And the feeling when people tell me that I have helped motivate them... that feeling is WONDERFUL!

I overheard someone today say "I love working out with her. She has so much fun and she always keeps it interesting. I never know what I'm going to do when I agree to working out".

I am really enjoying this challenge. Not only because I get to share the entire experience with a great group of coworkers but because motivating them is in turn motivating me more than I could have ever imagined.
