"Setting Goals"

Goal setting! Why is it important??

Taking on a β€˜mission’ without a defined goal or a plan is the same as walking out of your front door and not knowing where you are heading. If you have no plan and no goal destination, it’s only luck that will get you to where you truly want to be. Goals are important because they give us a direction to follow and a way to measure our progress along the way. If you have a goal it becomes easy to say whether you've achieved it or not. Goals allow us to succeed and success keeps us motivated.

I have set myself a goal today! Pull ups! Argh! I am no good at them (at the moment). 
My goal is to complete 10 unassisted pull ups by the end of 2016! Eek. I am holding myself accountable smile emoticon

In this video I did 10 pull ups with 2 x bands to assist me. Next time I will take one band off and keep trying every few days until I can do 10 consecutive reps. 
Finally, I will start my journey with no assistance until I reach 10 reps! Sound like a plan? Persistence pays off.

What health, fitness or life goal are you going to set for yourself today??

Go get em!
