Need an Accountabilibuddy!

Recommended Posts

I've only just joined up and am looking for extra support.

I have family and co-workers who are all on board, but I would love someone outside my current little circle to keep me accountable.

 

I am located in Far North Queensland Australia, I'm not sure there are many of you out there who are located nearby :confused:
I am totally ok if you are located ANYWHERE else, as long as you are able to touch base with me daily and keep my lazy butt in line.

I am still looking and I'd love to help you out too :flustered:

 

I'm not entirely sure where to start though.

 

Have you been a member long? Where are you at in your journey? What would you like from me to help keep you accountable?

I just started this week! I am years in but also brand new. I go to the gym for a couple months then take a month off then rinse repeat. Right now I am trying to build muscle and increase my stamina. Just having someone to talk to that understands the struggle would be amazing!

:adoration: awesome! Do you stop deliberately to give yourself a break? Or do you sometimes just hit a slump? What have been the hardest things for you in this process?

 

I have just hit 6 weeks in, so I am still very new to all this. I don't go to the gym but I am doing the bodyweight workouts.

I hit a slump at 4 weeks in and had a week of feeling bleghhh. I still did the workouts but I didn't do anything on rest days and ate terribly. I somehow snapped myself out of it though and am powering on again.

I've already realised I have 2 big triggers that slump me: money problems (which I have now taken steps to fix woo go me!) and my mother (slightly more difficult to figure out, I'm thinking I just need a healthy snack option I can binge on when I'm done dealing with her)

 

I am currently just trying to lose weight and get back to a healthier me. Years ago (aka Before Children!) my husband and I went to the gym, had a trainer and ate Paleo. So most of this isn't new to me which is good. I eventually want to get back to the gym and try weights which I have NEVER done before and does scare me. That'll definitely be a 20soc moment haha. I also want to run a marathon and climb a mountain. Right now though I'm just getting used to using my body again.

 

And this second I'm off for my walk before work :chuncky:

It is always a slump. I take rest days. I try to work out 4 days a week so I can recover. It is very hard for me to get to the gym before work. I just love to sleep. Even when I go to bed two hours early, I just sleep two extra hours. Money problems also make me binge sweets! I like to keep tasty fiber bars on hand because they are sort of a treat but they are very filling!

I just jumped into weights, I watched some youtube videos and talked to a guy at my gym but thats mostly it. I have to use the smallest weights and empty bars and the lowest setting on the machines but I really enjoy it and am seeing a change in my muscles! Another problem I have is getting off work at 5, getting home, changing, talking to my fur babies, and getting back to the gym for a 530 class that I love. I came into work 10 minutes early today so I could leave 10 minutes early. Hopefully that helps. I have never tried Paleo because I try to be vegan but I have heard good things about it!

Have the best day!
