By this point in the year, most people have completely lost sight of their New Year’s Resolutions but I am bound and determined to stick with mine and I hope you are too!
Let’s start with how I’m tracking my goals and maybe you can get a few ideas from it.
I got this really awesome planner at the beginning of the year that allows you to utilize the law of attraction. Basically, the law of attraction says that what you focus on in your life is what you will attract and what you put energy into, you will attract into your life. This planner breaks down the largest aspects of your life so you can focus on goals in each one of them. It has so much you can do in it and I LOVE color coding the whole thing. Check it out!
My health goals mainly focus around physical abilities. I want to get stronger on the barbell. I would like to bench 125 pounds, deadlift 275 pounds, back squat 200 pounds, snatch 110 pounds and clean 140 pounds. I hit 200 pounds on my back squat last month and have since shifted my focus more to my pulling abilities and technique in my snatch and clean; both of which I am only 5 pounds away from my goal on. When it comes to my bench, I have a tendency to get in my head so my goal is to focus on getting mentally stronger.
In addition to getting stronger on the barbell, I also want to bring my body fat percentage down below 25%. I am currently sitting around 27% so I have been taking the time to focus on my diet. I am following a keto diet of 60% fats, 30% protein, and 20% carbs (here's the calculator I used). Before you freak out and try to say that keto is bad for me, keep in mind that I have done a lot of research on different diets and I know that when I eat more carbs, I just feel crappier. I have tried low carb, low fat diets before as well but those just leave me feeling hungry all the time. As of now, I am really enjoying the keto diet. It is keeping me full and satiated and my energy levels are still up.
