Goal Setting

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. 

Someday this will be replaced with ME doing a handstand... it WILL happen.
