Happy Sunday purples!!

I hope you have all had a great week! I have had a busy week.  I have a lot to catch up on due to basically downing tools for the last 4 weeks to concentrate on all my events.  It was necessary, but now I need to get cracking again and I am still trying to sort out the mess lol!!

The topic of my blog this week is about goals. My 100kg weight loss journey really started on New Year’s Day 2011.  That is the day that I sat down and wrote my list of New Year’s Resolutions for the year and resolution #1 was to get to 100kg on the scale by New Year’s Eve that year.  I didn’t achieve all of my goals that year.  I didn’t even get to 100kg on the scale, as I would have had to lose 60kg that year.  I did lose 50kg though, and I was more than happy with that!  Every single year now, I take time out on New Year’s Day to sit down and really think about my goals for the year.  I write them out and then I work on making them SMART goals (Specific, Measureable, Attainable, Realistic, Timebased) and write down daily action plans for each one.  I am not always successful with getting everything done every day, but I get a whole lot more done than when I had no goals and action plans in place.

After the Kokoda Challenge, I have to admit that I felt a little bit lost. I have spent the whole first half of the year preparing for 3 major events all in July and they have taken up such a big part of my life since January.  They were all on my goal list for the year, but once they were all over I felt like I had just come off this massive high and didn’t know where I was going to go next.  So I took action.  Monday after the Kokoda Challenge, I sat down with my New Year’s Resolutions and rewrote them.  I crossed off the ones I had achieved, decided which ones were still valid and wrote daily action plans for all of them.  This week just gone I focused on what I need to get working on to achieve my goals for the rest of the year without overloading myself, and now I feel reenergized, remotivated and once again excited about where I am heading for the rest of the year.

So if you find that you have lost focus, or you’re in a mid year slump. Try it.  Take some time out for yourself to sit down and think about what you want to achieve between now and the end of the year.  Write them down, make them SMART goals and write down a daily task that will get you working towards your goal.  You might not achieve it every day, but I guarantee if you keep focusing on what you want to achieve and what you have to do, you will definitely get a lot closer to achieving them than if you keep going the way you are going.  If you keep doing the same thing, you will definitely keep getting the same result!

Here is to a productive week everyone!!
