Well…not a new focus as much as renewed focus on the things I was losing focus on…
like my mission to become a superhero.
and my preparation for the time when Doctor Who wants me to travel in his TARDIS to far off worlds and run away from things, a lot…
I haven’t stopped, I promise, despite my lack of weekly workout posts, I promise I haven’t stopped. I am still doing a workout in some form or other at least 6 days out of 7!
I haven’t stopped, but I have plateaued.
I am not really improving with my running, I am not really getting much stronger, I am not getting any lighter…
I know what happened, as I reached the end of my 365 I started to worry that I would lose focus, so I set myself new goals and started insanity and then convinced myself that I wasn’t going to lose focus…
and just when I thought I was safe…I lost focus
a lot of things happened, work, study, wedding photography, life in general…
and I just haven’t been concentrating on my own progression as much as I should have been!
As I said, I haven’t gone backwards, I haven’t stopped, I have just stopped progressing.
So, I am going to treat myself like a client. On my personal training course I have learned to assess clients and work out goals and programs to help them achieve their goals, so I have decided to apply the same principles to myself!
I know this should be an obvious step, it really shouldn’t have been hard to realise that this is what I need to do, but for some reason it was.
I am often guilty (as I know many people are) of giving good advice to others and ignoring it myself, but this has to stop.
on day 365 of the project I was so happy with my progress and my achievement but I knew then that I had more to do, I just didn’t consider exactly how to go about it.
Last year’s method of doing something active (anything active) every day and eating sensibly was a good one, it worked and it got me this far, but I think the time has come to develop a more structured approach if I want to reach the next level.
After all…I can’t expect anyone else to do things I am not prepared to do myself!
So that is exactly what I am going to do.
I have set myself up a spreadsheet similar to that I have made for my PT course guinea pig with all the measurements and fitness tests I have to do and I am going to set myself short medium and long-term goals and develop a strategy for achieving them. Once I have filled in more of the sheet and made a new plan I will share it all with you.
But for now, I leave you with the knowledge that I am back on this journey with a vengeance 😀
