Goal Setting, and re-evaluation
So, here we are week three already! And it is time for our mid challenge check in! Book your appointment with your trainer today!
Why are we asking you to check in half way through? It all has to do with goal setting the relation to goal attainment. One of the keys to success, is to set very specific goals, as well as to create a plan of attack to help you reach these goals. Without specifically defining a goal, and laying out the steps of how you’re going to reach it, all you have done it just make a wish. To say “I want to be more active”……and that’s it, you likely won’t know what specific steps to take next (e.g. on Wednesday I will attend a tabata class) or, have a baseline to which you can compare your “more active” (e.g. more active than what?). Just like cooking or baking, when there is a step by step recipe, dinner is more successful as you have had a solid plan to follow.
So, in week 1, you set some goals with your trainer, and now that week three is here, it is time for you to review your plan and see how it is working out. Remember that a fitness plan isn’t set in stone. We start on our path to achieve a goal and sometimes the steps we’ve laid out are perfect and fit in to your schedule well, and sometimes that plan didn’t work like we thought it would. So…..we re-assess! Hence, the mid-challenge check-in! Compare where you are this week, in reference to where you thought you would be when you put your plan together in week one. Likely, you are rockin’ it!! WAY TO GO!
But maybe, just maybe, things didn’t go the way you wanted. What to do? Let that week go! It’s not the end of the world! BUT, it’s also not an excuse to let it all go and give up! Re-commit to the next three weeks and make it happen!
Lifestyle change isn’t easy-if it was, everyone would do it!! It’s work for sure….but you are worth every minute!
