Gosh, I really haven’t blogged. I’ve barely been on Twitter. I had a schedule disruption and couldn’t get back into it… going to the gym, eating well. I knew I’d snap out of it eventually, so instead of posting half-heartedly, I waited until there was something to say.
So, I’m back now. It took about three weeks. I did a couple of jazz classes and went to the gym once or twice, but I was eating serious junk and procrastinating all fitness. How did that happen? How does one go from a seven-day cleanse to supersizing things? From craving the gym to treating it like a waste of time? Where did my goals go?
It was probably because I really didn’t have any goals to begin with. It’s never been about reaching a specific weight; I want more muscle and less body fat, and who knows what that ideal weight is. It’s never been about looking good by X day. Unfortunately it’s also never been about just being a healthy person; obviously, if I still eat junk, the fast food veil is still hanging. It’s just been, “Okay, go to the gym and work on gaining muscle and try to eat healthy.” Sure, it sounds good, but it’s vague.
To work your hardest on a consistent basis, it’s helpful to have interval goals. Difficult but achievable goals.
So, to stop with all of this horsing around, here are my goals from now until September:
- Make half of every meal fruits/veggies
- No fast food
- Attend gym 3 times a week (focus on butt, biceps and abs)
- Attend one jazz class
This month is about establishing routine again. Y’heard.
What’s your goal system like? Do you have one main goal or smaller frequent goals? Or do you prefer to workout for your general well-being?
