As promised, here is my accountability for yesterday.  I made it to 10k steps, 10,010 to be exact...but it took some work to get there.  Because I had housework to do yesterday, I used a tip a friend gave me a while back.  I folded my laundry and put it away....one piece at a time!  It helped tremendously.  I still have a ways to go...check out the leader board:

You might be wondering what this program is...I use a FitBit to track my daily steps.  (I have the Zip)  I LOVE my fitbit.  I've used a lot of different trackers over the years.  I've tried the Nike Fuel Band, the BodyBugg, pedometers.

The FitBit is by far my FAVORITE!  

It's small, I wear it on my bra.  It tracks my steps taken, calories burned, and distance traveled for the day.  There is a snazzy app for my iPhone that tracks my daily progress, and also lets me compete against friends for a weekly total.

And what's even better....you can buy the zip at BestBuy for only like $50!  I love mine!  I HIGHLY recommend it to anyone serious about tracking steps and calories burned!  

And if you get one, make sure to add me as your friend!  

My goal for this week is to get that weekly total up in the 70k range...it's going to take some work.  I'm exhausted this morning after lifting yesterday and hitting my steps goal.  But I'm motivated.  It's been months since I hit 10k steps two days in a row.  MONTHS.  (Pathetic, right?)

But that is my goal for today....so check back tomorrow to see if I hit that.  

So what is it that you are working on today, what is it that you are going to be accountable for?  One friend/reader from yesterday, Marissa, stayed accountable and followed through from yesterday.  I made sure of it.  :)  

There is power in being accountable to someone, I promise!  Let's do this together!


  1. You bet you made sure of it and I was so glad you did!! Wahoo! maybe Ill send my weekly weigh ins to you via text just to really up the accountability:)

    1. Way to go!! Keep working hard! And you know you are always more than welcome to send me your weigh ins for accountability! I'll be posting mine on the blog starting next week....GULP!

  2. Personally I'm really struggling! I just can't get back that feeling where I know I have power and control over myself. Yesterday, instead of going out in the pouring rain, I put on my exercise watch and cleaned the house until I had burned 500 calories. That was success in my book. =)

    1. I know EXACTLY what you are talking about Patricia! It's so hard to get back into the swing of things.....SO HARD! Way to go on making SOMETHING work for you yesterday, rather than throwing the towel in because of the rain! Double the success in my book! :)
