Accountability

I love Savage Chickens. I just had to say that. Seriously, if you have not checked them out and need a good chuckle, head on over and check them out.

Accountability is one of the reasons that I started this blog. I needed a place where I could be held accountable for not following through or to even be woohoo'd when I do make my goals.

Today, it hit home, just how much I need that; just how much I need to be held accountable for my actions or non-actions. Yesterday (or really, earlier today), I posted about needing folks to remind me to drink. Only two people took me up on this challenge and I have to say a huge thank you to both Angela and Justin who texted me.  I even reported in to Angela about what I'd had for lunch and her praise and encouragement kept me going. In fact, feeling like I'd have to fess up to her about having a rootbeer float at the kids' school party kept me from taking one when it was offered.

Don't get me wrong, I know that a bit of icecream or soda from time to time isn't going to hurt me.  However, it's important to me that I do my best this week. I want to make Angela proud of me. I want to lose this weight for me and for my babies. I want to get those text messages saying way to go! Drink some water!

So, Angela, if you're reading this, keep blowing up my phone! I'm loving it and you have no idea how much it's helping me. I can do this but I need help and you know what, I refuse to be too proud to ask for it.
