Guess what? We’re halfway through 2017. Yikes, right? I figured it would be a great time to do a goal check. Goals are very important to me to keep me focused and motivated. So, how did I do? Well technically not so well.
But am I sitting here crying into my lunch? Nope. Here’s the deal: I worked hard. I stuck to my guns. Along with my coach I planned my work and worked the plan. I showed up. And on a couple of items, I backed off weight to work much harder on technique and that’s A-OK with me. For me, it’s about the process and not always about the end result. Yes, I set goals, and yes I map out a plan to hopefully reach those goals, but sh$t happens. Sometimes, the goal is just a little too tough in that time period (6:30 mile? Didn’t even come close). Sometimes, I change my mind and refocus efforts towards something else (I didn’t work on cleans much but significantly improved my strict press). Sometimes I add in new goals (I needed to make some adjustments to my way of eating to maximize my health and strength).
So – all good. I’m excited for the second half of 2017 and a new, updated set of goals. How about you all?
