Accountability – Week 2

I told you I was going to do a weekly wrap up.  Look at me and all my follow through!

Accountability – Week 1Weeks until Walk – 31While we are talking the walk I’ll throw in current fundraising total – $2953.14 Official training doesn’t start for another 7 weeks but I’m working to get myself up to a baseline so training doesn’t overwhelm me.

I Have an Accountability Problem

I have accountability issues.  I like shortcuts — ones that no one but me need to know about.  No one but me needs to know that I ate that one (two, three — OK 4!) cookies.  If I put this one purchase on my check card Matt never needs to know about it.  Eh, who will know that I took the short route instead of the long route on my walk.  I’m pretty sure this is why the only workout regiments that have ever worked for me have been in structured settings.  Swim team, dance class.  I’m an incredibly proud … Read more
