I received a text from a friend today who is on a 6 week road to fitness and health.
Today he text me a list of sins from last week and his achievements. He is doing ok.
He also outlined his targets for the week. If he achieves all his targets he will take another step towards his end goal. These are great methods of making strides towards his end achievement. If he continues in this manner, he will have no regrets.
His sins were
- 2 nights of low alcohol consumption
- 1 pack maltesers
- 2 Cornettos
- 6 small chocolates
His victories were
- 4 training sessions
- 5 days off alcohol
- only good carbs (i.e no chips, pasta) at meal times
His Targets for the week are
- 4 training sessions. He has these in the diary. He is a busy boy, but knows when is the best time to train
- 6 days off alcohol
- 5 days off confectionary (improve from last week)
Being accountable really really works. This is one of the reasons my fat loss bootcamps, PT courses and nutritional consultations work.
