Holding myself accountable - 'cuz none of you do!

Thursday, May 03, 2012

I'm actually following up on the goals posted on my Sparkpage - go figure! I've always had goals listed on my page, and I've rarely met them, and I've NEVER been called on it. Bad, bad Sparkfriends! Of course, the blame for not meeting them falls entirely on me, and I know it - I'd just like it if just once, somebody would say, Um, Dani, about this lack of minutes... I just want to feel the love, people!

For 4/30/12, I wanted to weigh in at 158 lbs, do 1000 cardio minutes, do cardio every day, complete 4 wks of my walking plan, do 12 ST sessions, and be able to do 50 modified pushups. As of 5/1/12, I had mixed results. My weight is down to 158, so yay me! I'm not going to lie, I have not evolved enough in my "wellness" quest to where I can say that my weight isn't the biggest thing for me. I'll get there, I'm sure, but for right now, I'm freakin' thrilled I made my goal weight!! My last pushups session had me do 60, so yay me! I'm aiming to complete the 100 Pushups Plan doing all modified pushups, and then, when I hit 100, I'm going to start the plan over again, doing them from my toes. But that's for another month... MapMyFitness says I had 24 hrs of workouts, so that's 1440 minutes. No, it's not all cardio, there's some ST in there, but I'm going with yay me! Notice I said some ST... yeah, I fell short there, too. I totally failed in cardio every day, that's on me. I know we need rest, but there's ZERO reason I can't do at least some easy cardio EVERY SINGLE BLASTED DAY. That ties directly into not doing the full 4 weeks of my walking plan, which is why I started my running plan with my cardio level not being where I think it should be. But we move on. Just means I have to get my cardio up, that's all.

I posted goals for 5/31/12 on my page, so I'm off to make those work. Feel free to shout at me along the way!

    You are doing emoticon !

    I don't feel the need to nag people on their progress...because I don't appreciate questioning my evolution or how I get it...I am no Spark Nazi....don't have the time for that. emoticon

    My cardio ability is CRAP..lol And I just started C2K (that's where I found ya).

    It looks like you did a great job on achieving some of your goals, and can see where you slipped on others, so I bet you'll be successful if you just stay focused!
    I was hoping for an accountability partner for c25k. Since we're only a session apart, perhaps we can check on each other?
    Either way, it's nice to have people notice your efforts (or lack thereof), but I've found holding myself accountable was the biggest struggle.

    First of all, sounds like you did pretty awesome! Congrats on getting to your weight goal! Second of all, may I suggest setting your goals from WHERE you ARE, not where you think you should be? Sounds like you might be overshooting a bit?

    Anyway, keep up the great work!

    Boy are you ever hard on yourself. You are doing great! As wonderful as SparkPeople I don't think that anyone comes here with any goal other than losing weight. We just get enlightened after we get here but I don't need to lose anymore weight and I'm still in love with the scale.

    Lighten up. You are a hero any of us can look up to.
