Accountability: Tracking My Progress
I’m going to give you an update on my progress regarding my health goals for this last quarter of 2018 which covers the holiday season. I’ve decided to use myself as a case study, especially for the For My Health Today Journal.
What is the For My Health Today Journal?
In the For My Health Today journal, you set a health goal that you’d like to target over a 90 day period of time. You also list some of the things you’re going to do to help you reach that goal.
Each day you write down one step or thing you did toward improving your health, to reach that goal. Throughout the tracking, every few days, you’ll describe how you feel about your progress over that few days of time.
It’s a way of tracking your wins and encouraging more positive action steps.
You can also enter any challenges that you faced and how you overcame the challenges.
Being a Transparent Example to Inspire You
I believe that by being a case study it will help inspire you to join me. It will also help me because you all will be providing me with a level of accountability. It’s not that I think you’ll get mad at me if I stumble or make a mistake, but more of me doing what I said I was going to do and sharing how that feels and what that looks like in real time.
In previous podcast episodes, I shared tips for starting a walking plan, talked about the benefits of regular exercise, and gave you some of the reasons why I chose walking as my primary exercise.
So, at this point, I’m going to assume you are onboard and that you have already started walking or you’re getting ready to start.
If you still need some motivation to get started or overcome some objections about being too busy, then check out some of the previous podcast episodes for inspiration.
