Being accountable to others

I am trying to cook more, so I call a friend and tell her what I am cooking for dinner and report on how many days I have cooked or how many days I have skiped eating out.

If I don't do that I can not get myself to just do it.

Yes, commiting to others work, but I am annoyed that I depend on others or that I can do things for others but not for me!
Same happens with everything else...

I was reading about how different moms get their kids ready in the mornings and it seems some have opt to use a reward system.
My son is to young so I have to dress him and get him ready, but I don't think I want to use a reward system to get him ready when he is big enough. He will have the same problem I have, he will not be able to get himself to do something that is good for him unless there is a tangible and ready reward. I want him to learn to be accountable to himself and not so much to others.

Many years ago, and long before I got pregnant, I read a little about self discipline as an child uprising approach. I think I will look it up and maybe apply those principles to me as well!

What do you think, am I being too complicated?
