Are you an “athlete in training”?

August 8, 2012

Bucket lists … that catchy little term that became enormously popular a few years ago thanks to a movie of the same name which inevitably made audiences do a double-take on their life goals.

Sometimes life gets ahead of us and before we know it, we’ve reached the point where “kicking the bucket” is very near. We all have personal goals; some daily, weekly or yearly. Some which pertain to our careers or social life. But a bucket list is much bigger, much more fun and something that can really inspire you to get a move on life!

With the 2012 Summer Olympics upon us and quickly coming to an end, I started thinking about bucket lists. I’m sure for some athletes, making it to the Olympics and accomplishing that HUGE dream was definitely on their bucket list.

While we may never see a shiny gold medal hanging around our necks, we should all take a cue from this historic event and start thinking like Olympians. Look at your own fitness bucket lists! Do you have one?

Everyone can be an athlete. Some of us are in training and some of us are not. If you think of yourself as an athlete, will that change how you feel about yourself and your personal fitness journey? Perhaps!

_____________________________________________________________________

What’s on your fitness bucket list?

It’s time to start taking your fitness level to a bigger and better place. Now is the time to create some life goals pertaining to your athleticism. Be your own Olympian and create a fitness bucket list with some dreams you want to fulfill before you die. Dream big!

These aren’t little goals of eating healthy and staying active. I want you to pick something that you can work towards. Maybe a 10 year plan, maybe something you want to accomplish later in life but start training now.

Maybe you want to…

  • Run a marathon
  • Learn how to surf
  • Swim a long-distance in open water
  • Learn to stand up paddle board
  • Scuba Diving somewhere tropical
  • Play rugby
  • Compete in a Strongman competition
  • Cycle a long distance somewhere
  • Climb a mountain

Now create that list with some specific dreams and goals pertaining to you as an “athlete in training”.

  • Write it down and revisit it often.
  • Make a plan – pick something off the list to accomplish each year. Maybe break down your ultimate goals into smaller ones
  • Start small and make some goals that are easily obtainable at first. Put them in order of easiest to hardest. Once you accomplish something cross it off. It will feel amazing!
  • Don’t be afraid to add new goals all the time. Nothing is too outrageous. Have fun! Think outside the box.
  • Target a bucket list specifically to different areas of your life. This one is fitness
  • Include something you can do today!

21 Day Challenge – Week 6

February 20, 2011

The Final Week

Goals are a means to an end, not the ultimate purpose of our lives. They are simply a tool to concentrate our focus and move us in a direction. The only reason we really pursue goals is to cause ourselves to expand and grow. Achieving goals by themselves will never make us happy in the long term; it’s who you become, as you overcome the obstacles necessary to achieve your goals, that can give you the deepest and most long-lasting sense of fulfillment.

Congratulations this is your last week! Wishing you the best of luck, you should be proud of yourself for making it this far. I cannot wait to read your conclusion journals and thoughts on this experience. Your journey and transformation has been an inspiration to follow. I am proud of you all!

With love

The truth of the matter is that there’s nothing you can’t accomplish if:

(2) You’re willing to take massive action,

(3) You notice what’s working or not, and

(4) You continue to change your approach until you achieve what you want, using whatever life gives you along the way.

Congratulations on completing the first 21 days! Wishing you the best of luck for your fourth week. I am so proud of you and the best part is how proud you are of each other.

21 Day Challenge – Week Three

January 30, 2011

Week Three

“I believe life is constantly testing us for our level of commitment, and life’s greatest rewards are reserved for those who demonstrate a never-ending commitment to act until they achieve. This level of resolve can move mountains, but it must be constant and consistent. As simplistic as this may sound, it is still the common denominator separating those who live their dreams from those who live in regret.”

Thank you for taking part in the 21 Day Challenge, wishing you the best of luck for your third week. I know last week wasn’t easy. Read each others entries, be inspired and know that you are not alone in this journey. I am proud of you all!
