Blog # 21 ~The Jane Experiment
Oh how the wind changes. How we change, how goals change, plans change, expectations and dreams change.
Reality sets in, or we learn new things or something shifts in priority.
I used to always curse myself when I changed my mind about my goals, making myself ‘lazy’ or ‘bad.’ But now I see things just change with time and experience.
Yes, I’m getting all philosophical… This past week I had a chance to touch base with Chad after completing his Goals Questionnaire. It had been over 3 months since the last time I’d touched base with that and it was really cool to see how things had changed for me during this Experiment.
My goals when I started included lose weight, feel confident about food choices, and feel confident in a swim suit. Those things I actually did accomplish, which feels amazing. Other things such as be a certain weight, and buy a new pair of jeans; those didn’t happen. They didn’t happen because things changed. I figured out that I might not be the same weight or have the same body as Kate Moss, but that that’s actually ok. Yes I want to be fit and healthy and thin for sure, but I now know what I’m comfortable with maintaining and how I actually want to treat myself.
It’s a much smoother course, less yo-yo. Of course there are days I eat chocolate and workouts I miss. But after my exercise and challenge of planking everyday I have come to learn that even checking in with how I feel physically everyday is a major step in staying on course.
How do your goals change? Are there different things you focus on, health wise, the more you learn? It feels like that for me, But I suppose only time will tell.
Have a great weekend! Try reviewing some goals, let me know how things change for you!
