totally shocked pleasantly surprised at how many of you signed up for MizFit Motivational Matches the first go around (who said we Bumbling Band types arent joiners?!).
As a result I thought it might be fun to do it all again at the *beginning* of the year. You know, to help keep our new found motivation from waning.
After mentioning the concept in the comments/twittering your overwhelming reaction was: tell me what the hell this Matchup thing entails & then Ill let you know if Im in.
So here goes.
All laid out.
In short snappy nonMizFit’y (if by MizFit’y you mean rambly—-which I do) prose.
* Im all about the accountability partners. Peeps whom we may not even SEE on a regular basis but who help keep us on track with regards to our goals (which are, all together now, really just DREAMS WITH TIME LINES).
* Because I have had such fantastic support from people Ive never met (you know who you are…) I wanted to set you all up with the same kind of encouraging dynamic. Random pairings of supportive partners (IMO we need NOT share goals in order to cheer each other on to success. Sometimes I think it’s better *not* to share goals so the other person can be impartial/offer insights not tarnished by her own mission/goal striving).
* SUPPORTIVE. HEALTHY. These words are key and, since we are all grown
ass women (no men jumped in the fray last time), I shall leave it at that, People. If you cant envision how this might become UNhealthy with regards to encouragement—–email me. Ill happily enlighten you.
* What does this entail? Whatever you want it to entail!
Emails, instant messages, twitters, text messages, phone calls, small tokens of motivation mailed to each other—it’s all up to you & your partner! What I do suggest is that you cut & paste the below (or generate your own similar missive) by way of introduction and then let the correspondence take on a life of its own.
*Clarification: DONT SEND THE BELOW TO ME. All I need is an email saying COUNT ME IN! When you receive your matchname please to, should you want, cut & paste & send the below to *them.*
My name is ____ , my friends call me ____.
Now, if I could only fulfill my lifelong dream & meet Vince Vaughn in person, he’d immediately give me a noogie & bestow upon me the coolfunny nickname of ____.
I have a blog (address: )/I dont currently blog.
My goals right now are pretty much A. B. C.
I wanted to have an accountability partner because _________________ but I almost didnt sign up because ___________. In my mind it would be perfect if you _______ because I tend to drop the ball when it comes to ___________.
That said, I do not respond well when people __________ so dont do that if you wanna motivate me. For reals.
OK. Im out.
