I’m normally super hard on myself so that I don’t need to tell my goals to others because you better believe I will be holding myself to it. However, there have been a few goals that I just can’t seem to hit, so thought I could use this post to hold myself to it. Because once it’s written in ink (or in a blog post??), there’s no turning back! Let me know in the comments one or two goals that you are striving to do in the next three to five months and let’s hold each other accountable!
Physical and Mental Goals
Goal 1: Do a pull up. I have been wanting to master a pull up for the past two years but keep not doing it. I’m not practicing enough and even feel a little intimidated heading to the pull up bar. Now, one of the other gyms I teach at has equipment to do assisted pull ups, so no more excuses for me!
Tips on mastering a pull up:
- Jess from HellotoFit uses less intimidating equipment and takes it to the playground. She explains how working on your eccentric holds will help eventually get you to a full unassisted pull up. And after – go play at the park 🙂
- Heidi from BuffBunny recommends practicing with assisted pull ups. Try 5 reps with light weight, continue upping the weight until you’re near your weight. Once you can do 5 high weight reps, it’s time to try unassisted.
- Neghar from Girl Gone Strong shares 6 tips to make a pull up more do-able when you are just getting started.
Goal 2: Lose 1-1.5 inches around the waist. I usually don’t have goals in terms of looks when it comes to my fitness. I workout to be healthy, confident in my skin, and mentally disciplined. However, with my wedding coming up, I want to look my very best! The waist is super important to be tight and slim for your own wedding! Who doesn’t want that hourglass curve in their wedding dress? 😉 Find me one person and then we can talk. Here’s my workout for a bride to be that I have been doing a lot in preparation!
Goal 3: Freaking chill. This one is different than the others but a big mental struggle for me. I am on the opposite spectrum of careless and drive myself crazy a lot of the time, making my life less enjoyable and pleasant. Although careless people hugely aggravate me, I think I could add an ounce to myself in order to have a happier mental state. Anyone with me on this?
What are your goals? List one below and it will motivate you to make it happen once you write it down and send it out there in the world.
