45 Days of Fitness!
Ohmigod, we’re halfway through December already. Where did the year go?!
Not only have most of us begun to feel like we wasted most of the year, I’m pretty sure a lot of us (including myself) are currently feeling the “So much for my New Year’s resolutions” pinch. Like every year, about 98% of us solemnly resolved to get fitter and lose weight in 2016. How many of us have actually managed to do that?
So here’s what I figured I would do. When I woke up on November 15th, it struck me that there were only 45 days left of the year. Just a month and half, and it would be 2017! And I, like many others, had let all her “fitness goals” just go from “I’ll start tomorrow” to “I’ll start Monday” to “I’ll start next week” — and well, here we are. This little moment of realisation was a major jhatka for me, and so I set out to find some workout buddies.
If you know me at all, you know Twitter is where I first look for… well, anything. Need a movie recommendation? Ask Twitter. Best friend being a b***h? Rant on Twitter. No plans on a Friday night? Stalk people on Twitter. Basically, Twitter is my coconut oil.
So off I went, and asked the Twitterverse for a workout buddy!
45 days to New Year’s. Time to get fit and feel great BEFORE the new year (Because New Year resolutions are SO last year!)
Who’s with me? 🙂

And Twitter did not disappoint!
Within minutes, I had a dozen friends sign up to join me on my fitness journey. And that was just the beginning! As of writing this post, the TwitterGetsFitter tribe is a group of SIXTY super enthusiastic, energetic, determined people. And I am blown away!
But wait — It got better.
The enthusiasm and energy of the group caught the attention of a few brands, and they were eager to support our mission of getting fitter and stronger before 2017. They wanted to be a part of this, and to cheer us on as we slogged towards our goals.
YES! I still can’t believe it!
The amazing guys at Fitbit, RAW Pressery, and Antifactory Clothing, have offered some awesome goodies to everyone who sticks with the program, and shows their dedication and determination towards getting healthier and stronger.
And if you check out the hashtag on Twitter, you’ll see how many people are going hardcore and being SO dedicated to this! It’s both overwhelming and humbling to witness, and I’m so proud of each and every one of them.
