Keeping myself accountable

Hello :)

So today is Week 1 weigh in and a public holiday in Brisbane!  Super happy with my first weigh in, especially considering this is including a certain boozy weekend in Adelaide....but
even still, I am 5.2kg down since Friday.  I am now 100.5kg and I'm hoping that next week will see my break the 100kg barrier for the 2nd, and last time.  I made such a big song and dance about it the first time...well here we go again ;)

I've spent most of today getting some pre-season stuff done, as well as creating a few things to help keep me accountable for the next 12 weeks.  I am yet to set my big goal for the round - I am a bit stuck on that one actually.  But while I sort that out, I've spent some energy on trying to set myself up for a successful round, by being more accountable.

Here's what I've been up to:

I updated my blog!  All of the links are at the top of the page, but I updated:

My weekly weigh in page!  I haven't kept it up to date since April - it's now all up to date including today's weight: Coco's Stats

My before and after photos page!  All of them should be up there now: Coco's Photos

My weekly personal challenges page! Coco's Goals

Operation Yellow Dress!  I stopped in Week 4 last round so back onto it this round - I'll update the photos on each page each Wednesday - this time for Operation Green Dress, Operation Leather Jacket and Operation Denim Jacket: Operation Yellow Dress

Also check out my Instagram (cocogirlbutter) for an Instagram only Operation Blue Work Dress :)

Here are this week's photos:

And my 'celebrating every kg page' is up to date also: Every kg

On Instagram I copied this idea and uploaded this photo and will do every 4 weeks:

I'm also going to make sure I take a photo of the scales each Wednesday and upload it onto Instagram; update my weight on here, the 12WBT site, on a thread we have on our 30+ Facebook group, and various other places I try to record it.

And I reactivated my weight tracker on the forums and am going to try and visit there more often than I usually do.

I think that's it!  I've got other things I do too and little posse's of friends who we try to keep each other accountable and I'm just going to try to utilise them all.  I have some big goals and I am hell bent on achieving them, so I am just trying to do everything in my power to help me along my way.

Next blog post: my finale photos! :)
