Holding Self Accountable.

Thursday, November 15, 2012

I saw this link from another sparker The-More-Girl on her blog

Telling about her accountability and sharing a message board link on the common boards which can be found here :

Well this is what i wrote :

The way i hold myself accountable, is coming to sparkpeople daily, i track my foods, i track my fitness and i check my calorie deferential each day, i make goals for the month and i break it down into weeks, so i can do them gradually over the week. I have my goals listed in the other goals section so i can tick them off daily when i do them That has been a major help for keeping me accountable, i have joined a few sparkpeople challenges that help me keep track too, one in particular i like is the Buddy System Group Challenge within the spark group Aspire & Inspire. I have small challenges here and there too, but this one helps me keep account of my calories, fitness, water intake and team participation. I also have many spark friends since i have joined 3 weeks ago, we have back and forth conversations on my page or spark mail and that is a great accountable buddies, for some started being friends from a blog i saw on the scroll stream in one of the groups i belong too and it went from there, My spark friends has grown and i love it, i enjoy my friends alot, and there is always room for more :). Blogging daily is also a great aspect i have got to keep me account daily, i also do weekly blogs to update how my weight and measurements are going, as i do that weekly on a Friday, and getting extra advice and feedback is always helpful and i enjoy getting those to better myself. I did have one sluggish day and i blogged about it, and i have not had another day like that, It is great. emoticon

    You said it my friend. Everything we do we need to track and be accountable for. Why? Because we did this to ourselves. We were traveling on the wrong path and now we made that turn and are heading in the healthy direction.

    Accountability is EVERYTHING. And you are correct, if we dont hold ourselves accountable, no one else will.
