Halloween gone – – Get back on Goals

What do you planned for the weekend?

Dancing, stay home for pizza night, go out with friends, or a movie?

Now that Halloween is over and the candy gone or disappearing . . . time to refocus.  Hopefully you were able to have a few pieces and not the entire bag.  🙂  I know, I’ve been there many times.

 

Ever watch a movie or show that started at the end of the story and went backwards to the beginning?

Why they do that I don’t know?  Maybe to test our recollection/ memory in a different way.  It does make people focus a little more.  Do you feel like your living your life in reverse “for real” . . . or is that just me?

Lately something has been missing weekly.  It’s felt odd for a few months since I finished up the Business Academy with BTN and the Nutrition Program of PN.

It was a great 2 ½ years of learning, couple nutrition courses, business course, starting anew (twice), ignoring the naysayers, and enjoying learning.

Sound selfish?  Kinda, sorta, not really since my passion was helping others on their journey to health and fitness.  And that’s exactly what I’ve been doing by sharing the health, fitness and nutrition knowledge from some of the most knowledgeable people in the business.

To think I used to sit behind a desk day-in and day-out, working overtime, stressed, unhappy, and outright overwhelmed and exhausted.

I knew what I wanted to do with my life but I needed to clean out the trash/ clutter, change my scenery and live for me and my passion.  And when I say “clean out” I mean garbage bags straight into the garbage can and photo deletions in the thousands.

Without the distractions, stress, noise, demands, there was nothing holding me back from my goal.


What is your goal? 

On my health & fitness journey, I have encountered new concepts that I wanted to share with you.

Today I want you to think about “the goal”.  We talk about goals all the time and how it’s important to “Just Start.  Just Try.  Just Take One Step” toward achieving it.

But when should your goal change? That’s the debate.  Personally, I’ve gotten bored and changed things.  I was the queen of “rubber” goals.

I some times get so focused on the “END GAME” that I lose sight in what is best for me and my health overall.  I become obsessed with working out and eating right and staying away from the “bad food”.

Remember to think beyond the current goal and have another goal to achieve.   Otherwise you get to the end and are like “Now what?”  Or “is this all there is”?

Totally the wrong way for me to go I’ve learned.

How about you? 

Do you let weight, measurements, body fat % become your focus and hinder your overall fitness?

What if you change your focus to strength and incorporating better eating habits rather than aiming for a number? What if changing your body composition is more important than losing weight?  What if endurance or heart health is the goal instead?

Last year, I wrote 7 articles re: “7 Ways to Gage Success” based on what I had learned:

1.  You feel satisfied after meals (here ==>).
2.  You have more energy (here ==>).
3.  You’re sleeping better (here ==>).
4.  Your clothes feel just a little looser (or tighter) (here ==>).
5.  You’re in a better mood (here ==>).
6.  You’re stronger and have more endurance (here ==>).
7.  It feels more like a lifestyle than a “diet” (here ==>).

Once in a while you should take a step back and fine-tune your goals.

  • Find something that lends itself to being the healthiest, happiest version of you.
  • From time to time, re-assess your end goal with the assistance of your coach.
  • It should be ever evolving. Not necessarily by changing it but having another goal to works toward.
  • Most of all, as Dan Johns says “keep your goal the goal”.

Until next time, I’m only one click away. ===>>
