Happy Thursday!!! It’s day 5 of our monthly Keto and exercise challenge. How are things going? In my last post I shared about the importance of setting goals for the month in case you missed it here is a link to that blog post: https://wp.me/p2EoD3-uI

However today I would like to stress to you the importance of having an accountability partner and/or support team that can help you to stay on track. #1 you must first be accountable to yourself and God. However, sometimes we need some additional support on our health journey. At least one support person needs to actually be a workout partner if at all possible. Having an accountability partner will help keep you accountable to someone regarding your exercise and diet. I have 3 key people who hold me accountable to my keto diet and/or exercise. One of which is my husband of 16 years. Half the battle is getting your family on board with your healthy diet changes. If you haven’t already consider having a talk with your family and/or significant others and inform them of the journey you are on so they can help support you. This will help reduce and/or eliminate unhealthy food temptation at home if you are both on the same page.

What about you? I challenge you to find someone ASAP to be accountable to. This is one of the reasons that I began this challenge/blog to provide support & motivation to you on your journey to a healthier you! Support, Motivation & Accountability is EVERYTHING! It has worked and is continuing to work for me & I know it will work for you! Other sources of support can include but is not limited to your local gym, YMCA, YWCA, Functional, Integrative and/or Holistic Doctors, a Personal Trainer, Licensed Clinical Social Worker, Counselor, Health Coach, Nutritionist, MyFitnessPal community, Fitbit Watch online community or the other smart watch exercise communities that Apple and Samsung have. Find your accountability partner/ support group today and finish this month’s challenge HEALTHY!

Let’s go! πŸ”₯πŸ”₯πŸ”₯
