Accountable for Everything?? Yes.

Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, June 16, 2013

I have a fantastic Accountability Partner. I am truthful with her about my exercise and nutrition tracking. I guess I decided these were the things for which I should be held Accountable. Then, we decided to be Accountable to one another regarding water intake. That seems to be helping me...I hope it's helping her, too. Now, I'm thinking I might need to be held Accountable for my alcohol intake. I just love wine... But, I believe it's hindering my weight loss progress and probably my good health and well-being.

My first thought was, "Oh brother! Must I be Accountable for everything I do??" Then, I thought, "What a funny question." The answer is quite obvious, isn't it? The answer is an emphatic, "Yes!"
Of course I am Accountable for what I do, what I say, how I act, what I eat, what I drink...everything. Who else would be Accountable for my thoughts, behaviors, and actions?

And so...Accountable for Everything?? Yes.

    Wow! I love this. Good idea with the water intake. I am so bad at getting my daily 8 glasses. That would really help!

    Being accountable for alcohol consumption would definitely be a good thing. Like all things, moderation is good.

    An accountability partner is good, but life changes and your buddy may not always be there. (I found this out with a walking buddy some years ago)
We have to acknowledge that we must, first, be accountable to ourselves.

  I could use an accountability partner. You're right...we all need to be accountable for what we do or don't do. Good for you! emoticon

  Well, yes - if to no one else, we are definitely accountable to our bodies for the choices we make.

    Accountable for the choices I make each and every day. I too enjoy wine and know it is the barrier that is keeping me from reaching my goal weight. Time to find some calorie free alternative beverages to enjoy! Suggestions anyone?
