If you’re like me you have made your resolutions and have come up with some goals for 2019. Personally, I woke up in a panic today, wondering how I am going to achieve all that I have planned!

Aside from needing to rest more, which is the flip side to being a busy fitness instructor, I want to complete my novel, work on my memoir and tell the fascinating story of my Grandmother’s journey to Canada! I want to create more videos and another fitness book.

One of the best ways that I have found to deal with goals is quite old school! Map out your daily activities, listing the things that you have to do and the time of day when they need to get done, and see where you can fit in 20 to 30 minutes of time for you!Then take a piece of bristol board, listing the days of the week and plan what you will work on each day during that 20-30 minute time slot.

Put this activities map where you can see it all of the time. It will keep you on track! This has helped me to complete many projects over the years. The trick is it has to be visible. This tactic is quite helpful when you have many projects to work on but it can be used for exercise as well. I have always told you that variety is the key to good health. You can plan out your activity and this helps some people to stay on track.

I have the most energy in the morning, so I get up earlier to work on my dreams. If you are perked up later in the day than choose that as your ‘get things done’ time! No matter what your goal might be, there is always a few minutes within the day where you can do a small bit toward achieving the goal. When it comes to fitness goals, slow and steady wins the race each and every time. Don’t make huge weight loss goals and expect to achieve it in one month but instead, promise to work out in some way each day, without fail. Clients who refuse to let anything get in the way of their exercise date with themselves see the most change!

I look forward to seeing you next week. I have made some changes to my teaching schedule. I did this because I was in need of a change, which is as good as a vacation! I am excited for 2019 and I hope that you are as well.

Have a great week and see you soon!
