Today is day 2, of our contest and it’s  time for setting goals, thinking purposeful thoughts and committing to a PLAN!!

1.Goal Setting~ …what do I want to accomplish?  Take an honest look at where you are at and make goals that are attainable, yet challenging.  A good place to start is by taking your pictures and stats.  Once you have that truthful baseline you can asses how you are going to get to your destination.  Another key item to keep in mind with goal setting is set an EVENT~ a beach party, a special reunion, a wedding, a photo shoot, a trip…that EVENT will keep you accountable to your goals when things get “tough”.

My goals:

To take one day, one week at a time.  I’m looking to succeed in baby steps.   I expect to be fit in mind, body and spirit for the summer. I want my Ending pictures to show awesome results but  My #1 goal is to keep God #1 t; and keep the rest of my priorities in line after that- God, Travis, Kids, Family/ Friends and then …fitness and work.

My fitness goals revolve little around my weight, but more around my health and fitness level.  I’ve been struggling with eating enough to fuel all my training for football- so I need to focus on EATING .  I also want to increase my running capacity.  I plan to put some MILES on my new running shoes this month!  The goal is to run 3-4 times a week!

2. Thoughts~ be sure to journal or blog here about what you are thinking- some questions to ask yourself are: where you are at in your health? what you’ve been doing with your time the past few month? are you happy? how have you been eating?, etc…

My thoughts:

I have been in a season of “rest” for about 6 months.  I’ve recharged a lot, built up my immune system and increased my overall health.  The issues I had last year with stress are past me now.  Now it’s time for me to attack!!  I’m excited to attack all areas of my life again.  Fitness wise- I’m very excited to be sizzlin’ for my birthday.

3. Commitment~ It is important that you decide to stay committed…don’t allow yourself to QUIT.  Even if you miss an entire week of workouts due to a cold, you MUST NOT quit!  It’s never too late to start again!  The only way anyone ever attains their goals in life is by NOT QUITTING!  Decide here and now that you won’t quit!

My Commitment:

I am committed to my fitness…it is my medicine and it is VERY important to every aspect of my happiness and success in life.  Being committed to fitness is not a choice…I will never quit and I am committed to this plan for the next six weeks!!.

 

What are your goals?

Are you thinking on PURPOSE?

Are you committed?


I am!!  And that’s why I will be Sizzlin’ in 6 weeks~ come on the journey with me!!

Whoohoo, It’s gonna rock!!

  1. Thank you Michelle, for always inspiring me to do better. I am doing the sizzling in 6 contest so I hope this is where I comment to be accountable. I will be taking my picutres and measuring today. I can’t wait to rock a swimsuit in 6 weeks!

  2. Day 2 is completed and felt great and enjoyed the hot weather we are having. My goals are to get to racing weight. I am a runner/triathlete and I am now focusing on running and want to PR in the half marathon and 10k and I have a few races this summer. I want to lose about 5-10 pounds and build more lean muscle in order to be stronger, fitter, and faster. To do this my goal is to focus on my nutrition and feuling my body properally. The second is to run 6 days a week and build my weekly mileage to 50 miles and doing the week workouts in the contest.

  3. Hey!! Okay, I finished “My” Day 1 today which was the Upper Body, etc. I am confused though…..Do I just continue on with the days of the week that my workouts fall on and adjust it –meaning you all did Legs today and my printout says today was legs….haha…I don’t want to get confused which is not hard these days –so much going on! haha….loves…..xoxo…Sooooo pumped!!

  4. Hi Michelle, just checking in. I’m ready to go for the 6 week contest. Got in the leg/ab workout today. As always, thanks for your positive and encouraging attitude!!

  5. Good point- I should change that to say day1, day 2…instead of m, t, ….
    Just follow your days- so if today was your day 1 do Monday- tommorow do tues (day 2) etc…
    thanks!

  6. Thanks for the push start. Did my workout yesterday and I am setting goals (figure show in September) and having hubby tak pics tonight.

  7. Just to clarify – I do the circuit e.g. squats 3 x 15 and then repeat the other exercises through to 6 and then do them all 2 more times i.e. 9 sets of squats?

  8. haha…thanks honey! I worked it out today!! So, no matter what it was I had a great workout….Thanks…I would have ran in there and done legs too just to catch up so I wouldn’t get confused. My poor brain 🙂 xoxo

  9. Ok I found it!! I posted on day 1 again because the link to this page in my email wouldn’t open! Anyways, as I posted before, I busted my rear (haha!) on my lower body work out and I feel I’ve been eating really well. I only have 4 more days of BUFFING then I’ll start my first BOOSTING cycle and I hope I don’t fall back with changing up my work outs. I’m new to HT obviously! I admit I’m afraid of losing ground on the next (less-intense) two weeks….

  10. Day 2, CHECK! Just as yesterday, I had to wait until after kid #3 went down for the night to get busy on the lower body and abs. Wow–I didn’t know how weak I was in some areas! My goals are holistic in nature: eating better and learning more about nutrition all the time, better and smarter fitness (I’m a runner but learning it’s not always the best exercise), and getting down to a weight and body shape where I know I can be!

  11. Got a light workout done today- 20 mins of walk run intervals- 8 mins running total….had a bit of a sour tummy the past 2 days- but I’m still Gettin’ it DONE, cuz I wanna SIZZLE!!

  12. You can modify the workout to make it like boosting- just do the exercises with more rest time and heavier. Keep the boosting mentality and diet- that’s the real key~ the mental approach- It’s OK, It’s just my hormones…and press through!!

  13. I know it sounds crazy but I want to push to see what I can do (its a local show at a high school) Smaller goal = fit back into my old clothes first (2 sizes below).

  14. I’m committed to eating better and being more accountable for my actions.

  15. Day 2 done. I forgot to comment. I love legs, I just forgot that it’s not a good idea to work them hard and then go out for a 15 mile bike ride. I am sore today!

  16. It was 9pm when I started my workout, but I did it and got it done for the day!

  17. Day 1 went well. About to start day 2 as soon as I get the baby down for her morning nap. So excited!!! I have a wedding to go to in June and I have a goal on the size dress I’ll be in. Took my measurements and photos yesterday. Anxious to compare at the end of the 6 weeks. 🙂

  18. Michelle – your priorities are spot on! I have the same priorities in life, and it is very encouraging to see that being in shape is not #1 in your life, but you recognize how important it is to your happiness and being there in everything else you do. Thanks for the pep talk and I am NOT GOING TO QUIT! 🙂

  19. Hi Michelle, Day 2 Legs and AB workout is done and I stocked up on some healthy veggies and proteins today! Thanks for getting me going again : ) Taking pictures and measurements today!

  20. I love getting a daily email to keep me focused and accountable. Having to log on and write is key. The last couple months have been great, I’ve been getting stronger, running longer and acquiring more energy for my day-to-day. I have to focus on keeping my calorie intake on track. That is my biggest challenge, not to eat so much. I love food and need to gain more will power and practice saying, “no”! That’s my main focus for now oh and also running a 5k on 5/26 that I registered for. Currently I’m running 10+ minute miles and the furthest I’ve ran is 2.4 miles.

  21. Day 2 and workin’ it.
    I have my goals. Still working on that “final frontier” ( lol, Michelle) but closer than I have ever been.
    Now it is the details.

    It is great to see so many fired up ladies in here!

  22. Goals-I want to be able to beat/at least run w/my son @ The Race in September. He’s a football player and runs track so it’s actually a high goal!
    Thoughts- I’ve signed up for some really awesome team sports so I’m very motivated!! WOOHOOO!!
    Commitment- I’m going to do this for me but also for my kids, so they can be proud of their mom!

  23. What great goals! I’m working on getting my stats and photos together. I’ll post my detailed goals, thoughts, etc. in the Rally Room.

  24. Whew! Day 2 done! I, too, was confused whether it was 3 sets total or 9. The first circuit I did 3×15 etc and thought, “No way can this be right! I’ll be a stain on the floor 1/2 way thru the 2nd circuit. Glad it’s clarified. Have a Great Day, Sisters in Iron!! 🙂

  25. Day 2 done. Working on those goals aside from the new jeans I am going to get into in 6 weeks. Stats to do now…

  26. Day 1 and Day 2 great days! Excellent workouts and good focus on whole foods and lean protein. Am particularly proud because Day 1 of my Sizzle was also Day 1 of a NEW JOB….didn’t let the stress of driving to work after working from home for 3 years and learning a new gig send me to the junk food nor did I use it as an excuse to sleep in and skip a workout! YAY for me!! Great to have some traction…thanks Michelle!

  27. Day two. Got my workout in but blew the healthy diet. Frozen custard with my hubby and little girls. Everything else was good though so no regrets and on to succeed tomorrow!

  28. The goal part for me is hard cause I am not always sure what I want but I finally know I can’t compare myself and so my goal is to be a better healthier me and that will build confidence.

  29. Yes!! you are on the right track!! Goals don’t have to be pounds, inches or sizes…they can be feelings~! CONFIDENCE in your body is a GREAT goal and feeling!!!
