Accountability

Monday, January 14, 2013

I live alone. I come home at night to an empty apartment that I try not to fill with junk food and excessive TV watching. I have a lot of friends. They love me. emoticon They expect me to go out with them 8 nights a week. I balance it alright I think, but, it seems like there are a lot of things I want to do, weight loss included, but it's not the whole story, and I let everything get in the way.

And why not? This journey is for me right? I don't have deadlines or a boss or any of that at home. So the coulda shoulda wouldas pile up like a stack of dirty dishes. And I wake up every morning thinking, well how did that happen?

So, I am taking it to social media.

Tonight, I want to get in a second workout (I was just plain awful this weekend with all the football), I am going to read from an actual book, I am going to work on a poem, and I'm going to organize something and/or start my online language classes (My 2 big resolutions for 2013).

I have this sign up behind my bedroom door about the journey of a thousand miles starting with a single step, and I've seen it work. I'm down almost 30 pounds (nearly halfway to goal; the lightest I have been in adult life!) It's time to get moving in some other directions with the same commitment.

So hold me accountable. Please! Mom's especially, get on me like I'm 8 years old here. The me who I look forward to becoming thanks you in advance. emoticon

    You are absolutely right, this journey is for you, and you alone. Sometimes that makes it feel a little lonely, but it doesn't mean you can't reach out to other people for a little support. And you're doing a great job of that right now!

Good luck with your plans... and I hope learning a language goes better for you than for me! lol

    Let me know how I can help with your accountability. My recommendation would be to set up some spark streaks for key behaviors and then make them public on your spark page (see my page as an example). Then I can "check up" on you to see if you're doing what you said you were going to. I'll be happy to do this as it keeps me motivated too. Just let me know.
