Accountability

Filed under: Goals — by Sarah H @ 10:03 pm

I’m a very impatient person. I start things and, if there are not immediate results, I quit. I have done this with many a diet, many a workout plan, many a project. My family and boyfriend have learned from many an experience that when I say I’m going to do a long term project or diet, that they’ll be happy to believe me once they see the results. Which isn’t often. So I need some help.

I am setting a goal for myself. I want to run the Central Florida Warrior Dash 2012. This run is the weekend of January 21/22. I have 5 months to get in shape, run more, and eat better to prepare for this 3 mile run(I know what you’re thinking, 3 miles? That’s it? And you need to train?? Well let me tell you, I am THAT out of shape). So this is my call to help with my accountability. I need a lot of encouragement and help with this, as like I stated before, I’m not very patient. I want results now. By January, I’m hoping to:

  • Lose 15-20 pounds
  • Eat at least 1 day vegetarian a week.
  • Be able to run 3 miles non-stop

I will update once a week on my progress for anyone who is interested or wants to help me out. Right now, I’ve never eaten vegetarian in my life, so if anyone has any tips or yummy recipes, I’m all ears! Thanks to anyone who helps me through this journey!

  1. Ohhhh, I want to do this! Except the entrance fee is now 55 dollars, pricey for a run. But, it seems so much fun. If we do (we meaning I’m getting Sean to do it, and Tarah is interested, and Tyler, and I can probably get Philip and Ryanne to get down with it) we can all train “together”, meaning we can all keep each other accountable!
    I’m excited for you, as for the veggie bit, try doing a veggie spaghettie, lots of yummy vegetables and a savory sauce, add chickpeas for protein.

    • If we do it on Sunday, it’s $45! Chris said he’s definitely in and as long as I prove to Paul I’m serious about it and really train hard, he said he’ll do it too! We’ll have a pretty big team!

    • Bah, I totally forgot that school was starting last week, so I’m kindof at a late start to starting my goals! And by late start, I haven’t started yet…I’ll update soon though….life’s hectic!! Buuuut, I found out that if I work on Labor Day, I can take any other day off within the next 2 months off so I’m thinking 3 day weekend in O-Town!! I’ll let you know! I’ll definitely be up the weekend of September 9-11 for Zachary’s family weekend
