Healthy Again: #Bingeconfessions, #fattyslap and accountability

Since my first “Healthy Again” post, I have been running on and off, but not consistently.

Since then I’ve created a hashtag called #bingeconfessions where I have to confess every time I binge.

I want to start other ways to keep myself accountable for my weight loss journey.

I have decided that I’m going to also send out an automatic tweet to my Twitter followers at 9AM everyday reminding them to send me a #fattyslap if they have not seen a tweet from “MapMyWalk” yet saying that I have done some running.

So, the rule is, when you see a tweet that says:

twitterslap“It’s 9AM! You know what that means… #sexyclap or #fattyslap?”

That means that if you’ve seen my running tweet of the day, send me a tweet @fastinggirl on twitter including the hashtag #sexyclap and if there has been no running tweet that day, send me a tweet including the hashtag #fattyslap.

I think it would be cool if more people joined in on this in order to inspire each other to workout and get in the habit of keeping our fitness commitments!
