"Starting January 1, 2020 I am going to eat healthy, workout, join a gym, drink more water, take my vitamins...." and the list goes on. Can you relate? Or know someone who makes grandiose plans in the name of New Year, New Me.
Personally, I try not to make these type of resolutions. Yes, they may have the ability to inspire us and make us feel good, but they're actually less achievable. You're better off building habits bit by bit.
I'm all about self-development and setting small goals in order to achieve larger ones. So, when my daughter Taylor shared she wanted to start training, I knew we needed to write out her goals and construct an attainable plan. We started with the largest goal and worked backwards. We quickly realized we shared similar goals. We both wanted to run consistently (she hates running but loves the medals), improve our swimming and ultimately do an amazing job at our triathlon and duathlon in June.
Consistency is really important when it comes to your health, and having a workout plan is going to help you stay on track and get you closer to meeting your overall wellness goals. I will share my SMART goals and workout plan in the future post. For now, I hope you guys enjoy my First Time Tri Checklist. I created this checklist to keep our training fun, consistent, and attainable.
