5 Top Tips for Accountability

Most people have struggled with their health and fitness at some point in their lives but when you ask what their struggles are, it’s almost never not knowing what to do.

We all know we need to eat plenty of vegetables and move frequently and yet somehow we can’t seem to apply this magic formula to our actual daily lives.

What gives?!

After working with plenty of individuals just like this at CrossFit 249, we know that the major key is accountability.

Yes the coaches and members at CrossFit 249 are going to help keep you accountable but what we’re really talking about here is self-accountability. Because as much as we’ll help you on your journey, it ultimately comes down to you and the decisions you make daily.

So here’s our top tips on how to hold yourself accountable:

  1. Prioritise it in your schedule

         Make an appointment with yourself! Schedule in your classes, when you’re going to cook dinner or meal prep and set reminders and alarms on your phone so you           don’t forget!

  1. Make it visual
    The power of the tick cannot be overrated! By pinning up a calendar and giving yourself a tick for every day you made progress towards your goals, you’ll find yourself not wanting to break the cycle and will cook a homemade meal just to get another tick on the board!
  2. Set goal-setting meetings and reviews.
    At CrossFit 249 we schedule these meetings with our members every 90 days to keep them on track and ensure they aren’t getting lost. If you don’t know why you’re doing it, it can be very hard to stay focused when times get tough. 
  3. It’s more or less, not all or nothing.
    You don’t have to go all-out on Day 1. If one portion of vegetables and a 20 minute workout is all you’ve got in you today, great! It’s better than nothing. Which leads us to…
  4. Focus on the positives.
    It’s so easy for humans to talk down about themselves and focus on all the things they aren’t doing but focusing on the things you are able to achieve will build momentum and encourage you to continue working towards your goals.

There are so many more ways to stay accountable and what works for someone else may not work for you. And maybe it works now but it won’t work in the future so don’t be afraid to change up your method of accountability to stay excited and motivated on your journey!
