Two Minute Drill: I’m fat #AF
This week’s TMD is an extension of last week’s discussion about connecting with your peers. Dr. Jay is talking about how he is fat #AF right now (it’s ok he said it, not us) and how connecting with his peers is helping him do something about it.
In this week’s video, Dr. Jay talks about how he is 10 lbs overweight and how in a recent discussion with his peers they talked about fitness levels, dealing with stress, and maintaining fitness. He and his peers decided to challenge each other and agreed that they were all going to work out at least 3 times a week.
This accountability group inspired him, made him accountable, and motivated him to actually make sure he worked out 3 times a week. Even when we think we are intrinsically motivated sometimes it is not enough. Sometimes you need that group of peers to motivate you.
Here is a suggestion for you:
- Set a target or goal.
- Tell a couple of friends your goal and have them share theirs with you so you are accountable to each other.
- If you stumble, don’t give up. If you miss a day or a week, don’t give up. Just get back on track and make those tiny little atomic habits big over time.
Keep watching and maybe next month Dr. Jay will share an update on his weight loss journey.
Now we are all his accountability partners.
We want to hear what you are working on. Share with us on our Facebook page who your accountability partners are and what goal you are working toward.
