Happy New Year!

Hello Team,

I hope you all had an amazing New Years! Now it is time to get your resolutions in writing.

  • Step #1: What are your goals?
    • Write them down in a piece of paper and put them in your fridge.
    • How are you going to achieve them?
    • Are you going to do it alone? (You know for a fact that you need someone to hold you accountable.)
    • Stop making excuses!!!!
  • Step 2: Are you motivated and dedicated?
    • You might have signed up for a race cause you got motivated cause your friends signed up for it! However, it takes dedication to take the training in. So, take your calendar aside and schedule  your training in.Don’t let anything get in the way!
    • Talk with your coach to go over on what is realistic and expectations in reference to training.
    • Are you motivated enough to clean up your eating habits!
  • Step #3: You eat to train, you don’t train to eat!
    • You are not a dog! So, you don’t have to reward yourself with food!  Make wise choices!
    • Cut the crap out of your life! No more excuses!
