Day 930: Weekly Accountability To The Rescue!

Weekly accountability pictures day 930


This week did not go to plan, of the six workouts I had planned I completed a grand total of zero! In fact, the only thing I did that could be considered exercise was today’s surf session. 

Starting Each Day On The Back Foot

So, what went wrong? An analysis of my stats for the week would attribute it to a lack of quality sleep. With my sleep duration and schedule out of whack I started each day on the back foot. 

Instead of getting my training done in the morning I “postponed” it to the evening. Then by the time I finished work I was so exhausted I bypassed the gym and went straight home! What do you call a second postponement in the same day…repeated six days in a row?!

A Decrease In Motivation?

While this explains my failure to complete any scheduled training it does not really account for why this occurred. Why did I choose not to get to sleep at my normally scheduled time? Why did I not right the ship after missing the mark the first couple of days?

I think the answer to both these questions is a decrease in motivation. Perhaps I haven’t attached a big enough PRW (Powerful Reason Why) to the completion of Mission 11? 

Perhaps I assumed that the “Day 1000” milestone would be enough on its own to power me forward? I’ll take some time out tonight to think about my Mission 11 PRW and adjust if necessary. 

Thank God For Weekly Accountability!

On a more positive note I am grateful that I have this accountability system firmly embedded in my weekly routine. The reason being is that this is precisely the type of week that turned into a month and kicked off the slow downward spiral in August 2009…that continued until August 10, 2021.

A weekly accountability process that includes publishing progress pictures and activity stats is the “last line of defence” in halting a potential downward spiral. Of course, I would much prefer to “winning” pictures and stats but times like now it helps me nip a “spiral” in the bud and allows to start next week with a clean slate!  

Until Day 937…

Eat Clean,
Shred Hard,
Think BIG!
