So with Easter and the end of Q1 coming up it is fitting that we should be talking about renewal of our goals. In particular, sometimes the quickest way to reach our goals is not a straight line. When we get close, we make jumps, throw caution to the wind and possibly do some things that need correcting. In the case of a diet, we might see our target weight only 3 pounds away so we skip a couple of meals. We may hit our goal, but it is hardly in a sustainable way. It’s times like this were a refocus, possibly even taking a step back or setting up your follow up with a fitness concierge and starting again can really help in the long term. Whether the endeavor be weight loss, lifting a certain weight or some time on a 6 mile run, stepping back from the goal and making sure how you are getting there is good for the long run can ensure that you will maintain (or exceed) that goal for years to come.

Many of us have seen the frenzy of the Crossfitters doing the Open workouts downstairs on Fridays, and with the last one finished the question for most of them will be 'what now?' This point comes along in all of our paths toward reaching our goals. Either we hit the mark or fall a little short but to stay motivated we constantly need to reset our goals. Like steering a steering a car, minor corrections need to happen to arrive at the destination. So whether it's assessing weaknesses or tweaking your diet, using this as information to reset your goals will only help to ensure your success.
