I just came across this cute blog that posts “Getting Stuff Done” on Monday’s. It’s an accountability thing. Emily and Julie have both previously started health/fitness/weight loss ventures that they quickly abandoned. They have both set goals and made resolutions outside of fitness and health that we have let fade into the background.They stated that, sometimes, when they share a goal out loud, it’s easier to achieve. Once it’s public, they have support and resources and community. So this is it and how you can join.
Every Monday, we’ll check in and see how everyone is doing.
What to join us?? GREAT! All you need to do is….
- Blog about your goal or project. (If you don’t blog, that’s ok, skip down to the last bullet point)
- Link up to our weekly post! Let us know how your goal or project is going!
- Grab the button in our sidebar! Help spread the word and grow our community of supporters. Let everyone know you are holding yourself accountable and getting stuff done! (You don’t have to do this, but it’s be fun if you did!)
- If you don’t blog, you can participate by commenting on the weekly posts.
I have never had trouble losing weight and was back to down to my pre-pregnancy weight very quickly after the birth of my first couple children. As I have aged, however, and since my last two came only 17 months apart I have not been able to get the pounds off. (I haven’t tried really hard either though ;-D) I just have trouble motivating myself to stop and watch a video on TV to exercise to or try to figure out what to do to keep the kids busy so I can run or something so I just haven’t. A friend recently posted on a homeschool group I am part of that she wanted to start an exercise group and meet a couple times a week together at a park so we can hold each other accountable. I joined and stated I hope I can stick to this….. I LOVE IT!! I haven’t missed a session yet. My children play right next to us on the little playground or on the other side of us on the tennis courts so they are always in our sight and we can concentrate on our exercise program. NOW, if I only had a working scale so I can see what’s going on in a numbers type format that would really help. My scale is dying but it’s kind of fun. I step on it and it lies to me telling me I weigh what I did in highschool. I step off and then back on again and I lost another 3 pounds 😉 one more time and YES another 3 pounds have dropped off…..I WISH ;-P.
