Okay, honesty time. I’m great at setting goals and horrible at reaching them.
This is clearly why I needed to save my own life and have weight loss surgery.
I would set a goal (stay in x amount of calories etc) and the minute I did, I would “reward” myself. Usually with food!
Can you say Sabotage?
But through this process I’ve learned two things: goals are super important and it’s okay to make them small!
Have I met them all? NO!
Have I kept setting them? YES!!
But why are they so hard to meet?
First of all I know for a fact that I used to talk myself out of the goal pretty quickly after setting it.
– I was too tired
– I was hungry
– That was healthy right?
– I’m too busy to do cuz
– I just don’t care
See? It’s so easy to do.
I also hate having someone I’m accountable to. It’s still an issue I have. I don’t like someone pointing out that I’m NOT doing something. so I’m only accountable to myself. This also makes me a terrible gym buddy.
This isn’t a good thing.
The most important thing, in my opinion, is not giving up.
So I’ll keep setting goals and I’ll fail at some but I’ll set more.
