CRUSHING NEW YEARS GOALS

This week the ADOFitness trainers will be addressing new years goals and how to stick to them. Coach Trista
shares her story.

For myself, the one and only goal I have is to take any steps necessary to be healthy. As I have discussed before I have many hormone/GI issues that are still unresolved. My goal is to be proactive in making choices that are going to help me and not worsen my condition. How am I going to stick to this? I am choosing not to compete for the first part of the year to give myself a chance to work with a naturopath and possibly look into Chinese medicine as recommended by @taracarlton_fit Lol (so if you know of any good places in the Portland area please comment! ) This is going to be tough! The temptation will be there to say “oh screw it I’m gonna prep and I’ll figure this out later” as I have done in the past, but I don’t want to be 3-5 years down the road and STILL letting this get me down and affecting my everyday. I love competing, but, I have to tell my self no. I have to look a the bigger picture and realize how I live my day to day is more important. This will not be easy, but I want to have memories where I look back and remember I was happy and enjoying the moment, that’s very hard for me to do as I am always in discomfort and needing to lay down. This is my motivation to stick to my goal. For many ,it is a weight loss goal, and they may be unhappy with where they currently are- I know it takes discomfort and patience to get on the other side of your goal. Because any big change is going to be uncomfortable, but we start feeling a little better as we go. We have a taste of what getting closer to our goal feels like and it keeps us going- “oh this feels amazing- I want to feel more of this” until one day you wake up and you’re 30 lbs lighter! You get a little momentum and keep your motivation! Just like I hope to do with feeling better everyday, feeling like myself again. I think one of the biggest contributors of getting yourself to stick to your goal is knowing it will bring a liberating feeling of empowerment, knowing you can accomplish something you set your mind to that’s going to better your life. Just decide.
