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.
My starting weight is ____.
I'm going to make July and the rest of summer great by ___________.
My weight loss goal for the summer is ______________.
My fitness goals for the summer are _______________.
My nutrition goals for the summer are ______________.
I often go off-track when __________________.
I 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) _______________.
Will you be tracking this summer? If so, what are your daily calorie goals and weekly fitness minute goals?
Sign 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.
