Accountability, Accountability, Accountability.....

Wednesday, February 02, 2011

So we are now in week 5 of BLC#15 and this week it is all about accountability. This fits right into what I have been trying to do so I am psyched. My accountability with my former dragon team mate Nan has been working great. I did not have any soda pop during the work week last week and I am off to a good start for this week emoticon

I still need some accountability in the exercise department. When reviewing my last blog, I realized I missed 3 days of exercise. It has been hard not having a training plan to follow. I am just kind of "winging' it. Well those days are over. I am going to be training for my first IronMan 70.3 this fall. My new triathlon coach recommended that I start building my base this month. She just sent me my training schedule for the next 2 weeks....ugh. I have enjoyed my hiatus but I KNOW to continue to see progress I need to have more structure and/or accountability.

Here's to hoping for another week with continued progress.

    Okay Molly..I am on track with fitness but changing mine up too..fitting lots more dance and music into it..it's what I love and thought why not..Candis is taking dance lessons..me too rofl...so have to get lots more ST in to fit in with the cardio that dance will bring...

    RE soda vs tea accountability..doing good with that one..in fact great..drinking water like crazy and my little brain is getting retrained to "thirst" for water once again..

    So happy you have a good training plan and a wonderful goal for the fall..mine is to get back to choreographing cardio dancing so I'm getting back into the swing of things...

    Have a great day..am borrowing your list for my little journal..making a few adjustments of course but hey...getting in shape for something new and different is perfect!

    What a great thing to do to get your training back on track. I need a plan too to keep me track. That is one reason why I joined M.I.T. Hope your training goes well.

    emoticon Molly! It sounds like you have accountability for the pop and you've done pretty well with that! There's no doubt in my mind that now that you have a training plan you will conquer the exercise as well!

    I am here for you if you need it.
