How can you be more accountable? There are many ways and some work better for others. I wanted to give you a few tips to help you along in your journey, whether it be to lose weight, decrease body fat, or to even be accountable at home or at work.
Know your numbers. Keep up daily if not weekly on tracking your progress. Your goals should be measureable, and therefore you can see if you accomplished your goals as well as improvements.
Have someone that is close to you that you can check in with, that is attempting to accomplish the same or similar goal. Reward one another when they are being accountable.
Use a food diary! This will help you to really see what your macros are. Calories are not the only number you are looking at; there are other important factors that are important to your health. Easy tip, track it before you eat it. Don’t make it so difficult, MyFitnessPal makes this very easy to track!
It is excellent if you have a time frame in mind for your goal. One that is specific to an event you have coming up, however please remember, don’t stop there. Keep on going and continue to improve/maintain your health versus giving up after the event is over.
Use a device that tracks your activity. There are many options out there, but why not challenge yourself to do better each day and to not over/under estimate.
Treat yourself! Remember you don’t have to always be given a prize from someone, but don’t forget to treat yourself. You can go big or small depending on works for you.
Lastly, when it comes to fitness and your nutrition, REDTrition is here for you.
