Today's topic: "Why are you working towards the goal you talked about on Day 1? Particular health goal? Size goal? Activity goal? Vanity goal?"
First I'd better say what goal(s) I put in my day 1 blog for September. I stated 3
Goals for September:
1. Don't injure myself.
2. Follow the fitness plan, but modify as the body's level of energy demands. I.e. LISTEN to the body.
3. One 5 mile race, Sept 9th.
I already did #3, and #1 and 2 so far are looking good.
As to the WHY I'm working toward these?
1. To live the life I want to live, including upcoming events, I need to be injury free... injuries put a huge road block in life.
2. Is a reminder to myself that I have to remain flexible... leave Polly Perfectionist OUTSIDE, and be conscious of my body. Why? Because being too inflexible or giving myself a hard time when "life happens" leads to a place I don't want to go.
These are modest goals. They are about remembering what's important, keeping the boat afloat.
And life, here in Maintenance, remains GOOD! Spark on!
