Hip-hooray! It’s Fit Friday 

It is the New Year and we are all about those New Years resolutions and goals. I will be honest, I have never been all that great about setting New Years Resolutions. I didn’t like the pressure of setting goals for the year and I didn’t want to feel frustrated when I failed at those goals.

I have been a personal trainer for years. I have had clients the New Years Resolutions discussion time and time again. Watching people come in with high hopes and unrealistic goals was frustrating, especially when I would watch them slowly disappear, giving up when goals could not be met.

A couple of years ago I started to look more at the idea of picking a word for the year. Why? A word gave me something to work on without setting some crazy goal that was bound to be forgotten. By choosing a word for the year I was giving myself a guide for my intentions. I would choose a word that represented a value or need I felt needed to be amplified in my life in order for me to live my best life.

This year I have chosen the word CONFIDENCE. I can take this word into my workouts, running, coaching, marriage, motherhood. This is a value that I admire in others, but is also one of those things that I can easily see being a part of my own personality. Using CONFIDENCE as my guidepost I will be able make stronger decisions as I continue to build my business, I will be able to live my most authentic life.

I could go on and on about why I chose CONFIDENCE as the value I would most like to work on and exude, but instead of doing that I would challenge each of you to choose your own guidepost for the year. Put some thought into this word. Choose your word by considering who you are and who you would like to be. Think of others that you admire and list the values and qualities that they have. This should be a word you have truly put thought into, remember, it will be your guide for the next year.

Once you have chosen your word than go ahead and make some small goals that will help you begin to live your best life. Start finding ways to best incorporate your word for 2020 into your life. Next week I will post a workout for Fit Friday, it would be fantastic if you can take your word and use it as a motivator to get that workout done to the best of your ability.

Happy New Year everyone!
