Goal Check!

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?
