The Second New Year's Resolutions
Do you remember the start of 2020? Yeah, that was already 6 months ago.
We are already at the middle point of the year. This is normally a good time to evaluate and reassess your goals you made at the beginning of the year. However, since everyone has just spent the last two months locked down at home, this circumstance is a little bit novel. Therefore, your progress might not be as linear. The Universe dropped a big steak in the ground of your progress.
It is likely that many people fell off with their training and nutrition the last few months with the huge added outside stressor that is the pandemic. As gyms are starting to reopen and you get ready to get back to your normally scheduled training, I think it would be a good idea if you set some time aside to think deeply about your goals for the rest of the year. It is likely that your training load has decreased during quarantine which means your overall fitness levels have probably dropped as well. This means that you and your coach are going to have to create a new plan based around your current fitness level and NEW goals.
Your new goals might not have actually changed from the ones you made at the beginning of the year, but now is a great time to reevaluate and potentially make a new game plan since we just had a once in a lifetime (hopefully) pandemic take part the last few months.
It is important to understand this has had an impact on all of us. There is no denying the stress. This is why now is a good time to almost imagine a fresh start. Try to remove the past and focus on the future. The next six months of this year are what is most important now. Reassess, make a game plan and start moving forward.
The last thing I will leave you with is when you focus on goals it is equally, if not more important to focus on the systems you put in place to accomplish those goals. What habits do you want to start creating now to get you to where you want to be at in the future? Most of the time it is best to start small. Small wins over time. Success is all about the compound interest of your daily habits.
