Recently I have been thinking a lot about my own fitness, and I will not lie to you, it has been very difficult to stay motivated all the time. I have always been very goal orientated and setting goals and challenges has been my driving force to achieve peak fitness, but recently I have realised that I have been coasting and have allowed my physical fitness to slip below what I consider to be my optimal level. But now I am taking my fitness back with some new goals for the next 12 weeks that I want to share with you.
It has been shown that writing down your goals, giving yourself a time frame and sharing them with others can increase your chances of success. But before I share my goals with you, I want to ask you what is it that you want to achieve over the next 12 weeks?
Just reply to this email and share your goals with me, this will make a huge difference to your success, I promise…
It doesn’t have to be much, just something as simple as a couple of sentences outlining your goals and why they are important to you. If you do not have a specific goal right now, just put some time aside to set some for yourself.
Your goals can be as simple as just committing to exercising 3 x per week, restricting the junk food you consume, losing a few pounds of fat, or even just walking instead of driving more often. These are all great goals that will help improve your fitness and health.
Here are my goals I am setting for the next 12-weeks…
1) Exercise 3-5-days per week (try and stay consistent): Consistency is the key to success, it doesn’t matter what you do as long as you are consistent.
2) Stretch 3-5 days per week: as we age, mobility becomes an ever important requirement alongside strength.
3) Increase my strength: using a mixture of Kettlebells, Dumbbells and Bodyweight exercises, the aim will be to bullet proof my body as I get older.
4) Practice mindfulness: it’s so easy to get weighed down with all the junk of life, that sometimes we forget to be happy. My goal is to ensure that I am fit both physically and emotionally. This means listening to what my body needs, through fitness and nutrition.
As you can see, three of my goals are exercise related and will challenge me physically, but the fourth is the one that many people overlook in today’s busy world…the emotional side. This will probably be the hardest goal to achieve, and will require as much if not more work than the physical goals.
I am excited to accomplish those goals, they won’t be easy, but with commitment I will achieve them.
While I am working on my goals, I look forward to hearing about your goals for the next 12-weeks, so send your goals over and I’ll look out for them.
