Procrastination Versus Accountablilty

I have been procrastinating on looking into the C25K program for some reason. I'm not completely sure why, but I suspect that it may have something to do with a fear of the commitment that it would take to do such a specific regimen. I like that so far things have been simple and largely unregulated. I think I am also afraid that if I fail, I will feel like a failure at all of this. I know that it's not the case and that not everyone is good at everything, but I am still struggling with making that logical thought jive with my less rational feelings.

So, I am writing these reflections down in this online journal to force myself to at least investigate what the program is all about. Health wise, I know that I have already come a long way from where I was such a short time ago. I'm not sure I would describe myself as healthy yet though, and I love the idea of one day being able to do exactly that. I think taking up jogging would be a great way to achieve that aspiration.

So, regardless of whether I start the program shortly, forget about it all together once I have more information, or decide on a time frame to prepare myself prior to adding it to my workout routine, I will look into what the program entails today. I need to be accountable not only for maintaining the healthy habits I have already formed, but also to continue looking for ways that will increase the number of tools that I can utilize in my progression to a better me.


  1. It's amazing the things we procrastinate on. I'm a terrible procrastinator sometimes, so I definitely feel you on this. Good luck figuring out if it's something you want to do. I don't think it's something you have to do if you enjoy more unregulated activities, but if it strikes you as fun then more power to you.

    P.S. If you don't post tomorrow that you looked into it I'm totally going to ask, so look into it!

  2. I'm going to ask too!! I got to week 3 before I "failed" - twice. Next time I'll get o week 4 before I "fail".

    Eventually I will fail all the way to finishing it - it will take me way longer than 9 weeks...but I will do it :)

  3. Please do ask! That's part of why I posted this... I like how all of you hold me accountable. Enz, I love what you wrote here: "Eventually I will fail all the way to finishing"... that's such a great attitude!

  4. WOOHOO!!! I'm sure you can guess how I feel about this. :-)
