Goal setting: not just good for exercise , good for life

Setting goals is a concept that has been around since the dawn of man, and can sometimes be labeled as something else. Sometimes we call them dreams, wants, or even fantasies. But deep down inside, whether you know it or not, you are setting goals for yourself! 

Often times we as people can dismiss our fantasies because they may not seem rational or even relevant to our current daily living. Nonetheless, we should challenge ourselves to look a little deeper at what we're fantasizing about. For example, if I'm dreaming of literally swimming in a pool of money, I am most likely setting a goal to have more money than I can imagine or knowin someone who does and will let me swim in their pool. Whatever the case may be, a goal was set. 

In order for anyone to reach a complex goal with the desired outcome, a plan will need to be created and implemented; a plan of action. This plan of action should include quantitative (measurable data) including your goal. If your goal is to be the best at your company, feel better, or just look good, challenge yourself to explore deeper. What does being the best at your company mean? You want to feel better or look good; what feels bad or looks bad?

The more we explore our fantasies, goals, wants or dreams, the more we will learn of our level of desire. If you truly decide your is set on your goal, some tips are listed below to help you succeed. 

-Clearly define your goal (try not to attach a timeline to your ultimate goal)

- Set milestones/small goals that lead up to your big goal
    ~prioritize your small goals (these may contain timelines, but highly not recommended. This is YOUR ultimate dream, the more you stress about it, the less you will love going after it)
- Every 30days (1day a month) Re-evaluate your priority list, and accolades

- Have Fun!

Body Issues: Magazines, Society, Ourselves

Recently, ESPN has released this year's Body issue. After getting over the grade-school reaction of people posing nude, we really looked at some of the messages portrayed.

- it's not arrogant to feel good in your own skin (but it is to act like a d!&k)

- magazines still portray looking a certain way 

- ESPN says " we can take time to unapologetically admire the bodies that move so well " (so if you really want someone to notice you, don't just look good, move well too!) 

- Look good, feel good, Be the best you possible and create your own Body Issue Cover. 

- Any body size, shape, or build is capable of being becoming one that is admirable.

Know your role!

Summertime fever is in full swing and everyone is not just looking for that last minute beach body, but a fun way to get it. Most people are looking for the name that draws them in. You know the one I am talking about. The one that sounds like "Cardio Hip-Hop Yoga." This name carries, what the kids call these days, swag!

You have to be careful when attending a class that has a special swag component because it may not be in your best interest. To let the cat out of the bag, I actually read the structured format for a class with the exact title. While the intentions of the class are quite meaningful, of wanting to increase flexibility, while dancing and keeping your heart rate up, there is no disclaimer stating the need for coordination, confidence, balance, stability, and musicality (because you have to keep the beat) . In fact the article sates the class can be good for anyone. I don't know about you but unfortunately I envision many people tripping over themselves and getting frustrated.

Ultimately, you will have to make the final decision for yourself, but remember to dig deeper, by reading the description of the class, asking the instructor what the format is, and asking a participant about the skill-level of the class and the instructors competencies while teaching.

If you would like more information on selecting a group exercise class that is good for you, feel free to contact me.
