Accountability + Facebook

accountability

This is a guest post by Heather Williams of NaturallyMe35.com. She blogs about fitness and natural hair care so go check her out…but first read her awesome post on accountability. 🙂

Family and friends know me as the woman who posts sweat pics on Facebook and Instagram.  I have received interesting and encouraging feedback in doing so.  The comments range from  ones saying “I’m showing way too much”, “way to go, Heather!”, “you’re brave to post yourself looking a sweaty mess and lastly,” “You Rock!”  That’s my favorite comment thus far.  Overall, the response has mainly positive and encouraging.  I totally ignore the negativity.

I purposefully make my fitness and weight loss journey public because I also need all the accountability I can get.  Why not virtual accountability!  I know most people don’t really care what workout I did, what sneakers I wear, or pics of my green smoothies but I also know that when I post that stuff, it forces me to follow through – to live out my fitness, beyond Facebook.   Plus, I can’t expect to help anyone if I am not leading by example.  I mean, as a Beachbody Coach that’s what I am supposed to do; encourage, inspire, support, and share my ups and downs.

What is accountability?

Accountability means being held answerable for accomplishing a goal or assignment.  The trait of being answerable to someone for something.

I am a stickler when it comes to accountability, having structure and order in my life.  That’s definitely the OCPD in me.  LOL!   Regardless, it works.

Anyone can say they are working out, but show me your sweat!

This is MY accountability, who or what holds you accountable?

Do you track your goals?

 

Dani Says:

I’m all about accountability. As a life coach, part of my job is to be an accountability partner to my clients. Personally, I’ve recently started a mastermind group and am looking for another to join so I can have more accountability in reaching my goals for 2014 and beyond.

Great Post, Heather!!

I use IG (instagram) to hold me accountable for hair & fitness goals. It's only recently been working though...

For my fitness goals I hired a trainer and she helps keep me accountable. I know that I am going to get an excellent workout when we have an appointment and while I don't weigh myself, I know I am getting more and more fit.

I don't track my goals on other things in my life, but I will make lists when I need to get things done. Congrats on your weight loss, that's inspiring!
