Setting Goals… is Tough

 I am by no means an expert on any of this, I’m only sharing what I’ve recently come to realize as I work to improve myself. I hope to provide inspiration to those who need it. 🙂

When you’re looking to change your life it’s very important to set GOOD goals for yourself. What I mean by good goals. Goals that are obtainable, realistic and not too easy to reach.

When I started my first round of the 21 day fix, my coach asked the members of my first accountability group to write down some short term and long term goals that each one of us wanted to reach during the first challenge. This task was harder for me than I thought it should be. Initially my goal was to get in shape. But why?!? I didn’t realize until that moment, that during my entire life I never had a real reason.

After giving it lots of thought, I completed the project by writting down my long term and short term goals and posting them for the group to see. I’m so glad I completed the excersize. It forced me to come up with real reasons why I wanted to be in shape and by sharing them I was held accountable to reach them. I’m still working towards my goals, but the real plus is I haven’t given up as I’ve done several times in the past.

Sharing my goals helped me realize that I wanted more than just to look good. I wanted to feel good, I want to be strong, and I don’t want to let anything to get in my way and stop me from being successful.

I’m so thankful for being a part of a group of people who are all working towards a common goal!
