Goal Setting and the Whole Life Challenge
It’s important to set goals! It keeps you motivated and looking ahead. It helps you COMMIT! You could keep plugging away, going to the gym and trying to eat right, but how will you know how you’re doing if you don’t measure it?
Every 3 months we create a ‘Goals Board’. I encourage each of you (and sometimes twist arms!) to write a goal on the whiteboard. It can be about getting you first pull-up or running a mile in a particular time or about losing weight – or maybe even just getting your butt to the gym each week!
Optionally, you can also participate on the Rain City CrossFit team in the Whole Life Challenge! This is a 6-week diet challenge, but also much more. You log into the app each day to record how you did in each category – nutrition, drinking water, working out, stretching, sleep. Each week, it asks you to try a different ‘Lifestyle habit’ – go without any electronics for 10 minutes, meditate, contact someone you haven’t in a while, create a to-do list. It’s definitely a challenge, but its well worth the effort! The next challenge starts Jan 20, 2018 but they do a new one every 3 months.
If you’re new or not really sure what makes sense as your goals, I – or any of the coaches – would love to help you! In fact, we may already have some things in mind just for you.
Your goals also help me set our programming so you can achieve them – and when there’s time, coaches can work with you individually too. But it helps to know what’s important to you!
