Gaining Weight, Losing Accountability

I am doing terribly at this. As usual, I get into something for a week or so and then it just falls off.

I have been working out every day this week. I’ve eaten primarily vegetables, fruit, and meat/protein. I have been drinking water regularly. Weight isn’t changing.

 

I suck at this. I’ll keep trying.

Accountability.

I admit. I’ve been rubbish at keeping my resolutions. I can blame whatever funks or bad energies  I want — but the reality is that I am accountable for myself.

I have tried multiple workout routines and tried to take advantage of the various deals that various workout facilities offer. $41 for 41 days of Power Yoga. $39 for 30 days of Barre classes. Initial Fees waived and multi-location available for a discounted price. I even made up my own where I pay more off my credit card for each pound I gained instead of lost!  It didn’t work. It wasn’t consistent. It didn’t work and wasn’t consistent because I didn’t work to keep it consistent.

I need to be held accountable. I just completed a 3 week challenge of $21 for 21 days. Except I paid extra for a diet plan that I could have found online. The difference this time is that the location and times of the bootcamp classes are convenient. I can stop by before work twice a week for a 30 min class or do 1 or 2 30 min classes right after work. They’re definitely tough classes, but the coaches and other attendees are really great. There’s such a nice little community within it and it’s encouraging me to stay. I won’t be able to afford it after this 6 week challenge ends at the end of the year.. but I’ll work my ass off until then.

On to the good stuff: How will I hold myself accountable?

  1. I attend these damn classes! There’s a weekly weigh in and a before and after measurement to see how much weight, inches, and body fat % is lost (or gained).
    • I weighed in at 159.3lb yesterday (Monday 11/26)
  2. I’m eating healthier and being honest about what I am consuming. How am I going to be honest? I’m going to write about it here. This will be my little diary. I can update it as the day goes by.
  3. My BFF Melanie — we’re both not happy with where we are in our bodies and we want to be better and stronger. We basically talk everyday anyway, but on Mondays we will weigh in and chat about our diets and workouts. It helps to have a partner to hold yourself accountable.

So there it is. Let’s get it done!

Resolutions Update!

It has been just over two months since New Years. I think it’s time to let you all know how my resolutions are holding up.

The top resolution is the original, the bottom is the update.

***1/2- I visited Japan for 3 days***

***…working on it still.***

***I am proud to announce that I have registered for my first 5K on April 6th. I will be running in Korea’s Cherry Blossom Marathon —the 5K version***

4 – days a week of working out… (unless I can make it more.)

***embarrassed to admit my lack of working out. now that i have no more visitors or vacations, I fully intend on refueling this resolution***

20 – have sex at least this much (it was a bad couple of years) note: this does not necessarily mean with different people!! i’m not that much of a whore (maybe)!
***4/20 – ;)***
