As with many things in life, it takes putting pen to paper to make it feel real and permanent. Over the years I've always said I've based on goals on a number when it comes to working out and being healthy - such as: I want to be 120 pounds, I want to be a size 4. I've decided to change that mentality because it obviously hasn't worked, and to me it doesn't feel healthy to aspire to be a certain weight. Sure I could find a way to be 120 pounds by working out excessively and eating 1200 calories but will I be healthier and stronger? Most likely... No.
A few of my goals for right now in my life:
- Achieve an unassisted handstand
- Finally QUIT drinking soda
- Drink at least 64oz of water a day
- Decrease my body fat percentage by lifting and eating healthy (no particular number, just less than what it is right now)
The list will continue to grow as I realize what other goals are important to me, but this is a good place to start.
