November Fitness Challenge Goals

fitness-goals

The dictionary defines a goal as, “the object of a person’s ambition or effort; an aim or desired result”. So many of us make goals, but then we never stick to them. But why? Many of us make goals that are too vague or too long to finish and then we forget them. I am also guilty of making too many goals so I get overwhelmed and never even finish one.

I plan on making shorter and more attainable goals that I can finish in one month or shorter. It’s better to have goals that are specific and easy to finish and then work on another goal. It’s like a snowball effect. The more smaller goals you achieve, then you will continue to make more goals and your success rate will be higher. At the end of a year, you will be surprised at how much you accomplished. I have three main goals for the month of November I want to complete.

1) My Major Goal for November is to finish this Fitness Challenge by posting one new post each day on this blog. It’s a 30 day challenge and it will help me to have a lot of new and fresh content for everyone to read. It is a good idea to get into the habit of writing daily.

2) My Second Goal is to lose 5 pounds this month. Sounds easy enough right? That also means I have to get serious about eating clean this month and stop eating sugar. That one can be harder but doable.

3) My Final Goal for this month is to complete a third round of #21DayFix Exercise. I haven’t been as faithful the last couple of months and have gotten a little lazy. I did complete my first 5K in October and I am doing my second one on November 7th. I am proud for doing them as they aren’t easy, but I can do better with my health and fitness. I feel better when I am working out regularly.

I have lost 60 pounds so far this year which is amazing. It is taking me longer to lose the weight, but I am not quitting or giving up. Every setback I have just makes me more determined to lose the weight and become healthier. I am not in a race and I need to stop comparing how I lost 100 pounds in a year to this time. I’m five years older which doesn’t help, but I’m really trying to make this time a permanent change. I am definitely eating healthier than I had been and my whole family is on board now. That also really helps. What will your goals be in November?

  1. You should be soon proud of yourself…wow…60 lbs..that is awesome.

    • Thank you so much Kim. I am and it makes a huge difference in how you feel. I’m halfway to my final goal of losing 120 lbs.

  2. Defined goals are so important. Not sure if you’ve read the Compound Effect but it really speaks to small changes snowballing to big changes.

    • I haven’t but it’s on my list of books to read. I first learned of the Snowball effect when I read ‘The Tightwad Gazette’ about paying off debt. You can easily use that theory for anything.

  3. I think your goals are awesome and doable. Keep up the good work!

  4. I like that you talked about the meaning of goals and how people don’t elaborate enough or set too high of expectations. Your goals are definitely right in between cause there 9s some challenging points in each. Great work on your transformation!
