Hello from the air! :) Iâ€™m blogging from the friendly skies. Apparently, AirTran does not offer free Wifi anymore, but Iâ€™m willing to cough up $4.99 to be connected to the rest of the world.
This morning was a whirlwind of driving from Williamsport to Harrisburg, returning my rental car, and searching the airport for a healthy â€œfirst lunch.â€
When in doubt, go to Starbucks!
I bulked up their regular Perfect Oatmeal with my own banana and pecans. I also added some brown sugar and cinnamon from the Starbucks condiment bar!
I also had a latte.
Iâ€™ll need to eat something else when I land, but hopefully this will hold me over until I arrive in Orlando!
Iâ€™m happy to report that the Operation Beautiful note I posted in the bathroom at the beginning of the flight is still up!
Corny, but true. 🙂
With the PCT presentation behind me, Iâ€™ve finally reached a point in my work schedule that I can BREATHE. As in, I have nothing to do, which is a good thing and a bad thing. Itâ€™s bad, of course, because that means I have little money coming in (Iâ€™m not worried; I have faith something will come up). But mostly itâ€™s a good thing because I really needed a break to do some goal setting, planning, and business upkeep.
I just became self-employed in September, and Iâ€™ve been on a wild rollercoaster ride ever since. A lot of the last few months has just been me reacting to othersâ€™ requests, but I need to start getting out there and making things happen. I need to be PROACTIVE with my vision.
I set fitness-related goals all the time. Hereâ€™s the approach I use to set fitness goals:
- Identify a goal.
- Determine if itâ€™s realistic or what steps I need to do to make it realistic.
- Plan a path of small milestones (training plan) that will move me closer to the goal.
- Make the commitment to put in the effort to achieve the goal.
- Get my goal!
I think goal setting for other aspects of life (like a career path) are pretty similar. Iâ€™m trying to identify my â€œbig pictureâ€ goals and what steps I need to take to get there. Iâ€™d like to move forward in a methodical, logical manner so I donâ€™t waste my time or energy on endeavors that wonâ€™t help me reach my ultimate goals.
Right now Iâ€™m just making a list of my thoughts, but itâ€™s pretty scatterbrained.
What tools or methods do you use to set, track, and achieve both fitness and life goals? What goals have you recently achieved?
