The Merriam-Webster Dictionary has this definition of accountability: “the quality or state of being accountable; especially:  an obligation or willingness to accept responsibility or to account for one’s actions.”  Accountability represents a sense of integrity in whatever is happening.   It makes you think twice.  It puts you on the spot.  It’s powerful fuel for accomplishing goals.

Accountability is a worthwhile mindset.  A fundamental truth in life is the law of reaping and sowing: the actions and habits that we “plant” today take root and “grow” the fruit for the life we have tomorrow.  We easily accept this in other areas of our lives.  The need to pursue a skill to order to earn a living or in establishing a savings plan for retirement are easily embraced.  For some reason, it’s easy to forget that the law of reaping and sowing is applicable in the area of physical and emotional health too.  It’s much easier to say that a problem is caused by genetics or bad luck.  

My accountability to you has inspired me to keep a food log and an activity log.  This is already having a huge influence on my health and lifestyle.  Having to record it all has caused me to think twice before indulging in that extra “whatever”.
