This fall weather is absolutely gorgeous!!!
I hope you've been able to get outside and enjoy the fall colors (or the spring growth for the other side of the world)! I am very grateful that I was able to take a few hours off and go on a hike for my birthday. Being in nature is so healing and rejuvenating!
Since the month is halfway over and the year is quickly coming to a close, it is Check-in Time!
Last month I wrote a few posts on creating habits. If you haven't read them, start here, then read here, and then here for my real-life application (a personal story). They are pretty quick reads, and will help you understand the rest of this post.
How are your goals coming along for this year?
Have you been hitting your "baby step habits" at least 80% of the time?
If you have, congratulations and keep up the great work! Go ahead and set some more "baby step goals" or see if you can make it 100%. If not, take a moment and figure out why not. What is keeping you from nailing those habits? How can you adjust your baby step goals so that you can successfully and consistently achieve them for a week? Take a moment and evaluate your goals and your progress.
If you would like some help honing in on your goals (or setting some in the first place), contact me! I would love to help! Helping others achieve their health and fitness goals is my passion. I think health and fitness is achievable for anybody and everybody, but it is a very personal thing.
Below is the plan in the "Guinea Pig Gym" for this week. These are workouts that most anyone can do, though they may seem a bit intimidating. Start out with one single round of each set and try 5-8 reps of each exercise. Start small so you don't hurt yourself or become discouraged. These can be tough workouts! You may also consider doing the Trim in 20 Program, which is a 1-month series of at-home, no-equipment 20-minute(-ish) workouts. It's a great beginning point if you're new to working out or are just getting back into the habit. Or if you are short on time!
Whatever you do, take some time to move every single day, even if it's as simple as one or several short walks throughout the day, and some planks, push-ups, squats, and lunges. Something is always better than nothing. Set your goal, make your plan, and then plan to achieve it every single day.
