With a new season almost upon us and the weather finally beginning to feel a little more Fall-ish... it's a great time set some new goals and wake up each morning with more intention.
Goals don't necessarily have to require dramatic change in your life. They can sometimes just be simple things or small tweaks to your daily routine. Making the decision to make a change, however, can sometimes be the biggest hurdle. Making too many goals all at once can also feel overwhelming.
Try to keep things simple, manageable and attainable.
You may have seen it mentioned on the Bloomsquad Community page that we have a private Facebook group for anyone who would like to take part in Rachel Hollis' Last 90 Days Challenge. If you're not familiar with the challenge... here's the deets:
These are 5 realistic and manageable goals that can make big changes in how your year ends. And maybe you're already doing some of those things regularly!
The last 3 months are traditionally the busiest time of year for most of us. It might be when we tend to slack on our fitness... and maybe not make the healthiest food/drink choices with the impending holidays and celebrations. It can also be a stressful time of year as well.
Having a plan of action can keep you from resorting to not-so-positive coping behaviors. Creating new habits can potentially create new outcomes and keep you from losing motivation as we finish out, not only this year, but also this DECADE.
Here's what Bloomsquad member Rebecca Boyd had to say about the challenge the during the past 2 weeks:
"When I attempted the last 90 Day challenge last year I was overwhelmed by the number of items to accomplish each day - that was a lot of new habits to try to tackle all at once and I quit as soon as I did not check one box. This year I decided to try it again but took a little different approach. I decided no matter what, I was getting my daily water and exercise in and would focus on eating clean. If I missed a day of journaling or getting up an hour early - I am not freaking out and most importantly continuing to move forward. Don’t quit sister! Pick yourself up, you are not a quitter! Week 1 I drank my minimum oz of daily water but took in a full gallon when I could. I also pre portioned all my meals. I lost a pound per day. Week two the pounds slowed a little but clothes are continuing to feel looser. Yesterday my husband said how much younger my skin looks. Today I spent the day with Harper on a kayak at Rosemary Beach. Living our best life! I am sore as heck but thankful for my body and the ability to move. Thankful for this group of Bloom ladies to tackle this challenge together. Excited to make it to the other side and celebrate our progress!"
If you're interested in joining in our private Facebook group, let us know in the comments and we'll add you! It's a free challenge and sometimes just knowing you have the support of others who have the same goals, helps keep you accountable. It helps remind you that you're never alone. It's just one of the many cool things about Bloom... our community!
It's never too late to get started on this challenge and it's a great way to end the year STRONG.
Let's DO THIS!
