I never realised how important setting goals are until this project of mine came up. Writing it all down makes the reality set in.
What I have ahead of me is a long slog its hard for me to even verbalise as I’m still convincing myself that it’s doable. I have such incredible self belief but I don’t want to spook myself. Thinking about it in terms of numbers is scary but numbers are a part of this game. It is a bit of a head game. I’m also a bit competitive so knowing that I have a goal date coming up drives me.
I looked up when my 10% goal date is. Hoping that it will help me stay focused this weekend, yeah right! I’ll make up for the chocolate next week. I’ve got four weeks to lose 4.4Kg. Just over 1kg a week.
I’ve started to think about whether my goals fit within my philosophy. Yes they are attainable but can I sustain this momentum and is it healthy for me in the long term?
When I think about my next target it drives me and makes me more ambitious. I don’t want to get to a point where the goal is unatainable and leads me down a negative path.
The goal posts may have to move a little as time goes on but for now I’m reaching for the stars. This Is My Year.
