2017 Rebel Queen Reloaded
OMG, It's JUNE! Actually, June is almost over, we're in the last week of June 2014. We are more than halfway through the year and are you close to accomplishing the goals you set at the beginning of the year??? For those that can answer yes, a big applause goes to you!
For the rest of us (myself included), if the answer is no then don't fret. Don't beat yourself up, but get into ACTION!
Take one of your goals and commit to seeing it through. Make the decision that from this moment on, you are going to do whatever it takes to see it through.
Reach out to someone that you can trust and ask them to help you by providing accountability. It does help to have someone else hold you accountable and not allow you to continue to make excuses as to why you didn't do something you said you would do. It also helps when they remind you that you can do it and cheer you on.
Now that you have support in place to hold you accountable and cheer you on, let's get to work. Take small steps toward your goal. For example, if your goal was to loose 20 pounds this year, start with smaller goals or steps to work towards the big goal. Start with working out two days a week for 30 minutes. Once you get into that rhythm, gradually increase the number of days and the length of your workouts. Then set a goal to eat clean a certain number of days during the week, and then gradually increase that. This is just an example, but I want you to see how taking smaller steps will ultimately get you to your goal.
Whatever it is, you can do it. And when you feel like giving up, remember why you started. What is your why?
Last but not least, set deadlines!! Give yourself a date to have this goal accomplished. I will say in the case of my example above, I wouldn't set a deadline of 2 weeks to loose 20 pounds. Be realistic, as some things like weight loss take time.
Now get out there and accomplish those goals! I accomplished one of mine this week: To write my first blog post since last year! Now my next goal: to blog more consistently. What are your goals for the remainder of the year?
A great journaling exercise: spend 15 to 20 minutes reflecting on your goals. Why do you want what you want?
