Make your friends accountable for your productivitity. It works.

As an update to my to-do list post, I am feeling very productive and accomplished, especially considering I have been fighting a chest cold for almost 2 weeks now (yes, I’m going to the doctor today.)

Just so I can pat myself on the back before deleting it all and making a new list:
 
Monday:
Blogged
Did P90x (plyometrics; jumping)
 
Tuesday:
Blogged
Did P90x (shoulders and arms, abs)
 
Wednesday:
Blogged
Did P90x (yoga)
 
Thursday:
Blogged
Did P90x (legs and back, abs)
 
Friday:
Blogged
Did P90x (kenpo; kickboxing)

(For the record, Sunday I did chest and back and abs and Saturday I ran 8 miles and did stretching. These didn’t make it on my list since I was trying to get most things accomplished during the week.)
