So today being the last day of January got me thinking about what my goals (fitness, derby, weight) are for the year. When I wanted to achieve them by and how I was traveling. I did a little math in my mind and the outcome was a little bit of a reality check I now need to face up to, as I have already fallen short.
My goals are:
- loose the final 10kg by end May
- be working on core fitness and cardio
- outdoor skates min once a week
More than anything I have regressed. I’ve started eating sugary foods (addictive much?) and haven’t been prepared with meals and getting caught out. I haven’t started those outdoor sessions or been working on my core.
The reality: no one else is going to do it for me!
The problem: where’s my motivation? Why is it lax at the moment. I actually don’t know…
Solution: keep a food diary. Wake up earlier to do a cardio/core workout.
At least I’ll try to fake it till I make it. Writing it down and confessing it publicly might be the kick I need.
In saying it all, I recognize some big achievements too. I quit smoking. I gave up diet caffeinated drinks, and I bought new wheels to improve my skates. I’ve also had great attendance and want to go to my derby sessions.
How do you keep motivated??
