Topic: What are your goals right now? Do you have a short term goal you are trying to reach? Is it a certain weight you are trying to reach? Or are you pushing yourself to exercise a certain amount? Whatever your goal is I hope you share it with us. Then we can all cheer you on as you work towards that goal.
I have a running list of goals, at all times. They are posted on our bathroom mirror so I am reminded of them each day. Part of my physical goals is getting to a certain weight, but more than that, I want to have a body fat percentage under 20% and want to feel healthier and stronger. A friend and I will be participating in a half marathon in December, so there's another goal to be worked toward.
As for my exercise, CrossFit is taking care of that, although I definitely have some goals to increase the amount of weight I use for some exercises. It truly has amazed me how much my strength has been affected since the car wreck and surgery. Many days I am feel like I am having to start from square one, which has me reminding myself to be thankful I am able to exercise again.
While I am not sure it constitutes a goal as much as it is something I plan on doing, I will be juicing more often. Hopefully, I will have more success than I did on Tuesday.
Having goals, attainable ones, written down is an effective method to actually achieving them. There is power in writing them down, it is like a contract with ourselves of what we will achieve.
