36 hours to go in the 4-week/9-day push. In the last 36 hours, I achieved the 9-day target and my gym goals 🙂 The problem with achieving your goals is that you then need to set some new ones! So, new gym goals have now been revised and the programme revised with some even more evil-sounding exercises … including way too many squats for my liking!
It didn’t dawn on me until I was driving home that in my new programme, my repetitions have increased by 50 percent! Wah! Okay, okay … that’s the 6-week goal. But still … wah!
Breaking things down into smaller goals works really well for me – into manageable chunks that don’t seem too overwhelming – both in terms of time and difficulty. It’s amazing what can be achieved when fully focused on a short-term goal. It seems silly to even say it, but the short-term goal thing is so obvious, yet so effective.
4-week focus … time is nearly up. From a weight-loss perspective, I may be a pound or two adrift from the four-week goal, but you never know what might happen in 36 hours!
In any case, I’ll be able to enjoy my birthday in the knowledge that it’s all in the right direction. One step at a time.
Good luck with your own goals, whatever they may be!
