Having a Goal

Friday, June 06, 2014

I found this blog here:

I think this is all I'll need to get myself through the month and getting my body image boot camp fix.

The first link talked about making a fitness goal so that you can enjoy the act of moving just within yourself. If you focus on the goal, rather than on how you look achieving it, you don't objectify yourself (which they gave a really good definition for, and the quotes from academics were great!).

I tried to think of a fitness goal that would be fun for me to meet, but I don't really like any sports or running. Maybe learning to swim like an adult? I think figure skating or just learning to ice skate at all would be cool, but it's SO EXPENSIVE. Plus, I'm trying to be more responsible with my money lately.

What other ideas do you have?

    Well, anyone whose mascot is a horse famous for its smooth fast walking gaits would be remiss not to recommend walking. The shoes will be an expense, but well worth it.

Learning to swim like an adult is also high on my list. As a kid, I had swimming lessons every summer. In college, I took "Swimming for fitness" as an elective, and learned all kinds of refinements to all of the strokes - in addition to the fitness lectures. Lately, I have been swimming in the county pool. Seeing all shapes, sizes, abilities, and disabilities in the pool, all doing their best, made an impression on me.

Thanks for the links. Pick a goal and go! You can do it!
