It's too bad your coach isn't of better support. I agree that you could use this forum for accountability. I find it truly inspiring to visit the forum and on days that I need to vent, I feel like people know what I'm going through.
I'm lucky, I have a good coach and she agreed to continue seeing me even though I now follow the program 1/4 IP 3/4 Alternatives. She's been on the program and knows what she is talking about.
