The Mid Year Re-Up: 3 ways to get back on track with your yearly goals

Bruh! It’s the middle of the year ALREADY!  Where does the time go?  It reminds me of when I am playing Taboo and it is always that ONE person cheating with the clock…… like why is the time moving so fast? (P.S never play Taboo with me, I’ve lost a couple friends playing that game #ByAnyMeansNeccessary).  It seems as if we were just preparing for the New Year and now it is half way over with. 

By the way how are those goals going?  Have you been working toward them? Do you even remember 5 from the list? Actually raise your hand if you even know where your list is……..

Honesty moment…..

Everywhere that I go I carry a journal with me (minus the club….) and this year I was adamant about writing out all of my goals in the first 5 pages so that they would be accessible.  Well……I may have glanced at them once since February.  How do I know? I mean I WAS tracking my progress and well let’s just say no updates have been made since then… 

My bad.  Yeah I dropped the ball on being a good example with it comes to goal tracking this year.  But one thing about God’s grace is that he always gives us a new day and another chance to get it right.  So if you are just like me and fell off of the goal wagon; here is how to get back in the game.

1.       Reassess

When I finally took a look at my goal list I became……. OVERWHELMED; especially when it came to my fitness goals.  When I returned from Mexico I decided to take a little break from the gym, but a little break turned into a couple of months.  As a result, the goals were a little far fetched and unattainable at this point.  Instead of becoming discouraged I just adjusted. 

Realistically if I worked my hardest what would I be able to accomplish by the end of the year? 

Make sure to make it realistic but also ensure that it will stretch you to put some work in.  And if you have been on it and knocked a couple goals out; how can you further stretch yourself to go to the next level?
