New Year’s Resolutions-Week 2

We have completed week two of our New Year’s Resolutions 6 week accountability program and we had a much more successful week.  Yay!!  There were three big lessons that came out of this week that we want to share with you:

1. PLAN to succeed.  Planning our weeks with time blocks for our resolution activities helped keep us on track.  For me with my flossing, I have now put floss everywhere!  I have it in my bathroom, kitchen, car and purse.  By surrounding myself with the necessary supplies, I don’t have to worry about forgetting to grab what I need.

2. Give yourself a BUFFER.  If you are trying to get 5 hours in a week and you know that it is a crazy week with lots of balls in the air, plan for 6 hours and you are much more likely to get the 5 done.

3. Get it done FIRST thing in the morning.  If we scheduled the task for right when we woke up, we were much more likely to get it done.  By checking the box first thing in the morning, we also felt great for the rest of the day knowing that we were one step closer to our weekly goals.

So, here is the team update for this week:

Tara – Flossed three days this week.  Now that I have floss in every nook and cranny of my house and car, I am expecting to hit a five for the coming week.

Joan – Great improvement!  Was only 15 minutes shy of her 5 hour target.

Krista – Got all 3 workout sessions in!  Great week for Krista!

Terri – Lost 1.8 pounds last week.  Huge week for Terri!

I am so proud of the work the team is putting and of their willingness to put their learning out here for all to see.  Remember, the biggest part of accountability is the learning.  Learning what worked and what didn’t and making changes to keep working toward your goals.
