Winter Warm Up Goals

Tuesday, December 17, 2013

I've been thinking about my goals for Winter Warm Up for the past two weeks and decided I don't want to put a number to any of my goals. I don't want to say how many pounds, inches I want to lose or how many minutes I'll work out each week because if I don't meet my expectations then I am very disappointed in myself. Instead I think I am going to focus on my drive and commitment to myself to achieve a better me in spirit, attitude and hopefully in my physical well being.
I believe because I feel as if I am just going through the motions that I should achieve weightloss and that is just not happening. I spend plenty of time at the gym but maybe I'm just not giving it 100 percent of my attention while I'm there. How am I going to measure whether I've succeeded in meeting my goals is something I will have to think about during the challenge. Maybe I have to learn to blog more and pay more attention to my feelings and give myself the mental go ahead that it is okay to falter on the path to success.

    I understand how you feel and have felt like that for a while now. Focusing on attitude sounds like a great way to approach your health this holiday season. emoticon

    I have had this same problem for years but I think I finally got it. I would work out like crazy really pushing myself but I slacked in the food department. Once I finally really watched my food intake and tracked to a "T", the scale is finally following suit and moving in the right direction. I know it is not the same for everyone but thought I would share this with you to maybe help you out. I also took out breads and reduced my carb intake. I have been trying to eat more protein and veggies. It has helped.

    But you have awesome goals for the challenge! These goals will help you get through the challenge and winter!

    I think what you're saying is completely understandable and I think that's a great goal.

    I totally understand how you feel! It's so frustrating and hard to stay motivated when you set goals for yourself that don't get met... especially when you feel like you've done more than enough to reach them.

    "Ask and ye shall receive". If you put out the mental energy you're talking about, maybe the universe will respond in kind! Who knows! I've heard you have to "change your vibrations" by focusing on what it is you really want in order to get what you want. The bottom line is, though, that if it motivates you than it's doing it's job. (Hopefully that makes sense!!)
