Weekly Update Vlog: Accountability

I talk about accountability a LOT on this blog, and that's because I have my own personal issues with it! I have a hard time keeping myself accountable - as evident in the fact that I haven't blogged in a week and a half!! 

Remember last week's attempt at Menu Monday? Well, that didn't work out - at ALL. First off, I didn't stick to my menu. Second, I didn't follow through. Seriously, kids, I have issues.

Why is accountability important? Because without it, you have a lessened chance of long-term success. Holding yourself accountable means that you can go back and look at past mistakes to fix them, and not repeat them. Holding yourself accountable means that you are improving daily - training yourself, if you will, to a new, better, and more healthy lifestyle. And holding yourself accountable means that you are taking ownership for your own action and not blaming other people when you do something that sabotages your efforts.

As I say in my vlog: it is NOT easy always. But it is ALWAYS rewarding. 
Enjoy this week's update, and don't forget to like the video, subscribe to my You Tube page, and COMMENT! :-)

I agree... I have been a failed runner..okay jogger... on and off for years. I started a Couch to 5K this summer when I was off from teaching and wasn't sure how I'd swing running once school and the children's activities started again, so I signed up for a 5K at the end of October. It's forced me to be accountable for my running and I've stuck with it. In fact, this week has been a little crazy with weather and scheduled changes and I haven't gotten out... I'm chomping at the bit and that's completely new for me!

Happy SITS Day!

So true! I've started using an App called MyFitnessPal - and others can see what I'm eating and how much I'm exercising. It really helps me with accountability!
