I know that I am the spokesperson for making it happen. BUT like anything, there is a limit to what is humanly possible. And beyond that, there is a limit to how much you can do and still do it well and enjoy it.
Here’s a quick exercise, nope, not the sweaty kind so get a pen and paper. Write down your goals. I do not mean your “to do” list– call the vet and grocery shopping. As an example here is a portion of my goals list:
- Get the kids to the park or somewhere outside at least 3 days a week after work.
- Train for a marathon.
- Practice yoga at least 2 times a week.
- Study for personal training test
- Take a class online
- Build your website
- Mediate each morning
- Build more muscle
Now, pick 2-4 goals that are the most important to you RIGHT NOW. You might want to train for a marathon, but is now the right time to make that commitment? Or you are already scheduled to run a marathon, so is now really the right time to start committing to yoga? Should you commit to switching to a raw food diet while trying for your first triathlon? Probably not.
You will be consumed with a million things at one time, and not be able to focus on any of them. So, pick what you want now and focus on those couple of things. You can even alter the goals so they are more relistic. Keep your calendar and make sure you have your time planned out. Keep in mind that I am not saying to give up on any of your goals. Just pick which ones you want to start with. The truth is that once you are used to living a raw food living style, THEN it’s okay to focus on a your first tri.
So, here’s my shortened list for right now.
- Marathon Training
- Study for PT Test
- Get the kids outside often.
