I have broken a lot of promises to myself recently. They usually involve promising…
.. I’m tired.
… it can wait.
But here’s the thing about breaking promises, especially those you make to yourself: it feels terrible. Absolutely terrible. And I, for one, do not like feeling terrible.
I could just give up on trying… but I know better. I know that to be my happiest and healthiest, I absolutely must exercise. This is non-negotiable, and I’d venture to say it’s the same for you. How you feel is directly proportional to how frequently you move your tush!
I’ve also come to realize this: fitness aspirations mean little until they are transformed into goals.
what is a goal? lululemon says it best:
why are goals important?
Quite simply, goals provide focus – they provide the “why”, and knowing why can help you endure almost any how. It’s knowing why and enduring the how that creates your future. (They are also point numero 97 on my personal manifesto).
So with all of that in mind, I’ve decided to set some realistic and yet challenging (and fun!) fitness goals. Yippie!
