New obsession: lentils + cheese sammie.
The pre-cooked lentils are my new favorite Trader Joeâ€™s item (hereâ€™s a list of all my favorite Trader Joes goodies). Expect me to overdose on lentils in the next two months or so. They are especially yummy warmed and smothered in Havarti cheese!
Creating Accountability Follow-Up
Looove reading all your responses to the Reader Q&A: Creating Accountability Without Spending Dough post! My favorite response was actually one I received on Twitter from Courtney Anne. This is a great idea, especially for friends who have similar workout goals but are separated by geography or busy schedules.
Here are some other great ways to hold yourself accountable to exercise without spending a dime:
Amber @ Busy, Bold, Blessed: â€œThatâ€™s why I started a blog! I knew it would keep me accountable for my workouts if I blogged about them.â€
Maggie: â€œFor runners, I highly recommend iMapMyRun. Thereâ€™s a great (free) app that lets you track your progress, and you can share your workouts on Facebook for added accountability. Thereâ€™s also a great website where you can find routes that people in your area have run. Itâ€™s a great way to keep track of your workouts!â€
Lauren @ SassyMolassy: â€œOne tool that I use is fitness DVDs that Iâ€™ve rented from the library. There are so many great ones (Jillian Michaels, yoga, etc) that will give you a great workout, for free, in the comfort of your own home.â€
Kathleen: â€œMy neighbors and I created a fitness club. Zumba at one neighborâ€™s, aqua aerobics at another, plus group walks and motivational text messaging to help everyone get excited about workouts. So far, so good and very convenient and fun!â€
Shannon: â€œI created my own challenge: to run 100 miles in a month. I kept track of the miles on my calendar and worked up to some long runs. It kept me motivated because I told people about the challenge and they would check in on me later in the month.â€ (Psst â€“ Shannon met her goal â€“ amazing!)
Yâ€™all are so smart.
