We’re halfway through January, so I thought it would be a good time to check in and see how everyone is doing with their fitness goals. Are you crushing it? I’m sure you are!
I feel like so many people I know are on the Whole 30 right now. Anyone else? It’s a great program, but honestly a little too intense for me. I mean, no wine for 30 days…need I say more?!
I recently gave up sugar for 30 days, which has been pretty easy. Especially with treats like nice cream and Radiantly Raw Chocolate to fulfill my sweet tooth. But the thought of having to forego bread and wine in addition to that, is too much for me to bear. (Although I have certainly cut back on both.) For me, small decisions are more manageable and set you up better for success.
I recently read a little bit about the concept of setting daily goals. The idea is that instead of making ginormous goals that set you up for failure, you set small, daily goals, in hopes that you would be more likely to accomplish them.
For example, instead of saying “I’m giving up Facebook for good!” you might set a goal of giving up Facebook for the day. (Not even going to lie, that would be hard one for me. Maybe that should be my goal for the day?)
Setting a daily goal reshapes the way you approach that goal, setting you up for success. Is anyone else working on a similar concept? I’d love to hear what some of your goals are.
I still have a few long term goals – fitness being one of them, and although that’s one I almost always fail at, I’ve been pretty proud of my progress so far. I’ve been committing to 3 days of spin every week (more on that later). I’m hoping to add at least 1 night of yoga a week, and some toning exercises, but perhaps I’m setting the bar a little high?
I have worn these leggings from Reebok to both cycling class and yoga, and they worked well for each class. These leggings come equipped with sweat wicking material to keep you cool and dry, but I especially love the pattern! This lightweight jacket is going to be on major repeat, as well. It’s perfect for everything from hiking to grocery store runs.
What are your thoughts on setting daily goals? Is it something you have been applying? Would love to hear some of your tricks for crushing it in the comments below!
