There is never one surefire way to reach your target, but if it’s not written down, then it doesn’t feel official. The best way to keep your goals in focus is to keep them in writing somewhere. Whether that be a journal, message board, frame, mirror, etc. It just needs to be somewhere you’ll always see it and remind yourself, “What is the end goal?”
Write down your top 10 goals for your BossBody journey. They could be physical goals, such as losing 10 lbs, fitting into your favorite dress, or running a 5K. Or they could also be personal goals that you feel have been impacted by your lack of energy or weight. Some great examples are: “I want to have a stronger relationship with my spouse”, “I want to have the energy to spend time with my kids”, or “I want my family to eat healthier”.
You don’t have to get stuck in thinking only about your weight or fitness goals because the way you see yourself affects your entire life. So make these goals about what you want to achieve to feel more grounded and happy about your everyday life.
Out of those 10 goals, choose the 3 that mean the most to you. Figure out the “why” for these 3 goals. Why do you want to lose 20 pounds? Why do you want more energy? Why do you want to eat healthier? Figuring out the “why” for your top 3 goals will keep you focused on the finish line and make the journey worth it. Always keep your top 3 goals in mind to propel you through your BossBody journey.
Now for the golden nugget. For each one of these goals, you need to have a game plan. You won’t be inspired to lose 10 pounds by just writing “lose 10 pounds”. This is as vague as asking the universe for more money… You have to map out what ‘doing’ and ‘done’ looks like so you can get to work on the actions that will produce the changes and results you want in your life. For that, there are 2 simple questions you can use to write your game plan.
What’s the first step? It could be “looking for a GYM near me, Sign up to a program, Purge the fridge”… You already know where to start.
What’s the next action? It could be, schedule my workouts for the week, Substitute rice meals with cauliflower or make wellness goals with the family.
Whatever brain fog you may be having, these two questions are the charcoal to get the train moving to its destination. The end result!
It’s so easy to get caught up in all the noise of your mind trying to overanalyze things. Sometimes it stops you before you even start! That’s why It’s crucial to get it out of your head and write it down. This helps you focus on only what’s been planned out.
You want to take action! Not overthink things.
