Favorite part of the Grammy Awards ----> Carrie Underwood!!
Do you think she gets chill bumps when she sings? Is it possible to give yourself chill bumps?! The woman is amazingly beautiful and the power packed in her vocals is unbelievable! Amazing. Loved it.
Did you like the way they lit up her dress? What was your favorite part of the Grammy's?
Ok, now back to the scheduled post.....
I've shared this quote with many, I feel it's words are powerful and motivating, I adore it and live by it...
We must always have something in mind that's bigger than the day we're living in....
Setting goals for yourself can be exciting but for some it may cause anxiety.
When setting your goals always be realistic. When being realistic always realize there will be times your goals must be re-evaluated. Life never fails at handing us curve balls. There will be times you doubt your abilities, or you doubt your successes. Remember, everyone starts and ends at a different level, cater your goals accordingly. And be sure to give yourself rewards along the way. Also, give yourself the satisfaction of achieving mini goals within your big goal. Mini goals will guarantee your success.
Spinning off of this....into maintaining a healthy and fit lifestyle! oh yes, it's happening, time now!
I feel, you must look at these three things....
a recent setback keeping you from your routine? Do you have previous injuries to be considered? Once you are comfortable and honest with your current position - look ahead, way ahead - to where you want to be with your personal fitness level and make that your overall goal. Now that the big picture is drawn up lets map the route to include mini goals...these will be like markers, giving you satisfaction and encouragement to keep going. Your first mini goal could be just overcoming a fear of the gym. Another mini goal could be managing a distance equal to a 5K and then moving on to a 10K, eventually hitting a half marathon. Short term//mini goals can be as simple as pumping out 25 consecutive sit-ups or holding a 30 second plank with an overall goal of 50 sit-ups and 1 minute planks. One of the best ways to challenge yourself and reach your big goal is to simply 'be more than you were yesterday'. It's that easy. It's worked for me, every time. Bringing out the inner competitor we all own is a driving force to keep us on track to our main goals.
snacks are healthy choices, always having breakfast, adding more fiber through beans, greens, and wheat, having a daily salad, and setting aside time to make healthy meals. These suggested mini goals will help you find rewards along the route to your personalized diet goal and set you up for healthy habits.
your potential. And, focusing on the good will reinforce the beauty in your image. The more aware you are of the beauty you hold, the more value you carry. And the more valuable you are to yourself, the more capable you are of mighty things and achieving your goals (big and small). Being self aware and self confident brings out a force that is hard to defeat. By inserting this goal of healthy self-image you will get the best out of a healthy, fit lifestyle....looks and performance.
Are you overwhelmed by goals you've set for yourself?
Or maybe you need to set a few more, change things up?
I have goals set within my path to being fit. I have goals for healthy eating/living. Goals within parenting and in my workplace too. Shooooot, I've even made goals for this blog. I search for my weakest link and sometimes the path I'm on receives dead ends or gets an unforeseen detour. It happens, it's part of life. Life changes and we have to change with it. The worst you can do is not set any goals.
And, don't forget to tell me what you thought of the Grammy's!
*Look familiar? I first posted this as a guest on Pursuit of Pink. I've tweaked it a bit since then but had to share with you all too!!
