Summer Accountability Challenge Template

Thursday, July 05, 2012

I posted this challenge in a team I'm in, but I wanted to share with you since I have been reading a lot from people wanting an accountability boost for the rest of the summer. If you want to take part, let me know and I'll try to check up on you as much as I can. I'll probably post a weekly template via blog and feel free to do so from your blog as well. I'd start a team, but honestly, I don't have that much time, and I think posting public blogs adds an additional layer of accountability. None of the questions are mandatory (i.e. you don't have to post your starting weight). This challenge will run from 7/9-9/9.

emoticonMy starting weight is ____.

emoticonI'm going to make July and the rest of summer great by ___________.

emoticonMy weight loss goal for the summer is ______________.

emoticonMy fitness goals for the summer are _______________.

emoticonMy nutrition goals for the summer are ______________.

emoticonI often go off-track when __________________.

emoticonI am going to remain accountable this summer by (examples: checking in with friends, posting on SparkPeople when I'm discouraged, using the gym as a stress relief tool) _______________.

emoticonWill you be tracking this summer? If so, what are your daily calorie goals and weekly fitness minute goals?

emoticonSign here: I, ___________, pledge to eat wisely and slowly and avoid binging this summer whenever possible. I vow to drink my water and to turn to clean food for snacks as a first resort (fruit, nuts, veggies) but not feel horrible about myself when I eat too many "bad" foods, because it is not the end of the world. Whenever I don't feel like exercising, I will at the very least commit to a brisk walk.

    Great idea!
It is always a good idea to approach a goal with a plan, it is so much easier to achieve the goal(s) when you have a roadmap!

    That's awesome! I've already addressed some of these, but nutrition goals are nill and I chosen not to set a weight loss goal. I think this is so awesome there are some others I think might benefit from it too :).

    I am terrible at team participation, so I probably wouldn't join if you had started one. I've been tracking haphazardly my breakfasts (that's what has been keeping me focussed). I just got a brand new planner (July-Aug type), so this sort of goal-planning is giving me something to chew on and incorporate. Thanks.
