Okay, StrongBoarders! We’re out of the winter lull, and with the weather warming up (we hope!); it’s time to reevaluate our fitness goals. Think back to what you were hoping you had accomplished by now… Did you make it?
If you did, congratulations! You’ve worked hard and you should be celebrating. Now, think about everything you learned during your goal journey. Did this inspire any new goals you’d like to accomplish? Or was this short-term plan working towards a much larger goal? Is it time to go into “maintenance mode” where the rules are less strict and your plans turn into a healthy, balanced lifestyle?
If you did not… Hopefully you are closer than where you started. If you are nowhere close, well, it’s time to reevaluate your priorities. Take a trip down memory lane where you might not had been as committed as you were while you were setting your goal. Or maybe there were certain unforeseeable setbacks that kept you from getting to where you wanted to go. Were there certain parts of the plan that became harder than you had originally thought? If so, what can you do to ease the burden?
In either case, it’s time to refocus your plan for your fitness and wellbeing. Take some time over the next few days to do some soul-searching. Just as we did in January, write it down and note what measurable steps you can take to go ever farther. By creating a solid, achievable, and measurable plan we can set ourselves up for consistent success in all areas of our lives.
