Did you know that August is the month where most people’s motivation to accomplish goals fizzles out?
Many people feel fall coming and think, well, the year is almost over so I should just start over in January.
Well, guess what? You still have FOUR months left of this year and that’s plenty of time to make 2016 your BEST YEAR YET!
Have you heard this before? I love it:
September is the new January.
September is the perfect time for a fresh start and going after new goals, whether that has to do with work, fitness, health, a new venture, or even something like an art project! The leaves are changing color, the air is getting crisp, and it’s time for a positive CHANGE!
It’s so tempting to just pull back and be a little lazy this season, but CHOOSE a new mindset and choose a fresh start! What do you want to make happen in your life? What ideas or dreams have been drifting around in your mind?
Now is the time!
What if you hit January and you’re ALREADY rocking your goals!? How would that FEEL?!
Take some time to sit down and write from your stream of consciousness. Grab some blank paper and brain dump. Anything and everything, and then start organizing those ideas! Create big goals and dreams and then think about what you CAN do NOW! Nothing is too weird, small or silly. It’s your life and they’re your dreams!
What am I working on this September?
- Having a daily, business POWER HOUR to sit down and get things done without being distracted!
- Finding TWO new women to mentor to become coaches and join my amazing team!
- AMP UP the job search!
- Training for my Half Marathon AND keeping up strength training!
- Adding in more yoga with my 3-Week FREE Yoga Retreat (you can still join!)
How am I doing so much?
By sitting down at the beginning of the week and creating a vision of what I want to get done. Then, by creating small, daily goals that I know I’m capable of doing!
Since I signed up for the Denver Rock N Roll Half Marathon, coming up in SIX weeks, I really need to step up my game and make sure I’m getting my runs in. I’ve been really bad about running this summer, usually hitting a weekly mileage of 5-7 miles, when I should have been closer to 20! Oops. BUT, I’m not letting that stop me! I’ve created a six-week schedule incorporating both three weekly runs and 3 strength workouts from Chalene Extreme, a program on Beachbody On Demand.
Here’s what my workout schedule looks like for the next six weeks:
I have to say, I’m a liiiittle nervous about those long runs, but I’ve done it before so I know I can do it again!
AND, I created a Workout Schedule / Meal Planning Weekly Calendar that you can download (fo free) and use to plan out your weeks. It makes a WORLD of difference if you plan ahead! You’ll be amazed at what you can make happen!
How do you feel about the idea of September being the “new January?”
What are you going to go for this month?!
