So detox is a little bit of an extreme word, but looking at people’s fb statuses it seems to be the fad word of the month. So I’m proposing a financial and health “detox” for myself in February. What I need though is two friends to hold me accountable. One friend who I need to weekly? Every other day? Submit my spending to in order to ensure that I stay within my budget. I feel like if I need to tell someone what I bought and how much I paid for it I’m much more likely to stay accountable and stick to my budget. I’m thinking the new Godmother for this task.
Next “detox” would be a food/exercise one. I would need to submit my log of what I ate (and how many calories it was) as well as how much I exercised to someone. Now this would be really embarrassing I find if people knew quite how poorly I ate. My Lose it app on my iphone can be programmed to email my food/exercise log so this would be functionally quite easy. I’m thinking hmmm I still haven’t come up with a name for her but she knows who she is! (Hi, McDonaldsHater / Ex-Gym / ??? ).
I’m wondering if I had this accountability I could do it. Once I have the motivation I think it will be more habit and perhaps for March I would still enlist the help of my friends but on a less daily/weekly basis.
Thoughts? Does this seem like a good plan?
