Recommitment and accountability. Two words I’m choosing for my life today.
recommitment: a renewal of a commitment
accountability: the state of being accountable; responsible for; answerable for
I haven’t been taking care of my self very well lately. No consistency in my workouts. My eating has been awful. I’ve been drinking more coffee and less water. And I’m not getting enough rest. This is nothing but a formula for disaster.
I’m done with all of that.
I have recommitted to taking my health serious again, and I’m needing accountability. So, in sharing this here, I’m hoping I’ll find some.
My husband just finished 12 weeks of eating right and exercising, and has lost 30 pounds because of his efforts. I’m so proud of him! He has inspired me as well, and I’m glad my unhealthy habits haven’t deterred him.
While making these positive changes in my life, I need to know someone is counting on me out there to keep going, especially on those days when I don’t feel like working out, and instead, feel like finishing off a bag of Doritos. (Yes, I’ve been known to do that.)
Will you help me stay accountable??
So, here I go.
–To work out five to six days each week, alternating between upper body, cardio, and lower body workouts.
–To eat balanced meals containing both protein and carbohydrates.
–To drink 8 glasses (or equivalent) of water each day.
–To get 7 hours of sleep at night.
This isn’t going to be easy for me, and I know it isn’t the perfect time of year to start. Or maybe it is. I’ll still enjoy our annual Thanksgiving meal, and all the goodies at Christmastime, but maybe this year I won’t go overboard. Maybe. And as I mentioned in my post on Friday, I don’t want to get run down during the holidays, as I so often do.
Day 1 is almost complete. Workout was done early this morning. I ate pretty healthy today. Didn’t do so well with the water intake. And I plan to get seven hours of sleep tonight.
I’d love some company in this! If you’ve been wanting some accountability in becoming/staying healthy, would you consider joining me? Pick a couple positive ways to better your health. Ones that you can feel good about. I’ll be sharing more at my other blog, Live Laugh Linger, throughout these 12 weeks. I invite you to join me over there.
Here’s to finishing 2014 healthy!
