|Loving and holding each other accountable|
"If we don't ask each other questions, and hold each other accountable, who will? It's our job."
I have forgotten her exact words, but it is essentially what Kelly shared with me. For me it was a turning point in the conversation. That statement is also key to fitness. Sometimes we need someone to help push us along.
Every Wednesday I am awake at 4:30 AM to teach a 5:30 AM class, usually I go home immediately afterwards. Today, though, I did something different. I worked out. I spent 30 minutes doing today's workout. I also asked my coach, Jamie Fiddler @ Crossfit Renegade, to help keep me accountable on doing a workout Wednesday mornings.
As my coach Jamie keeps me accountable at the gym, Kelly keeps me accountable when I am at home. What I eat, where I eat, and how much extra exercise I do all are managed with the feedback I receive from Kelly. Together, as our married team, we help make each other into better people.
Who can keep you accountable to your fitness goals?
