Motivation, there is tons of it posted all over the CrossFit community’s FaceBook profiles and we are very proactive about sharing it because Motivation is imperative to maintaining a healthy lifestyle!
We are starting Day 6 of Fenrir Fitness’s 29 Day Ultimate Paleo Challenge and I want to know what motivated you to accept it. Everyone is motivated by something rather it be aesthetic or health reasons, to improve fitness performance and some are motivated by the social benefits of a healthy lifestyle. You may be motivated by one, all or none of these reasons. Over time the source of your motivation is likely shift.
I want you write in your food log the reasons you decided to participate in the Paleo Challenge and SPECIFIC goals you aim to achieve by the end of the 29th day. Is it a size goal? Are you an 8 but want to be a 5? Do you have health issues you want to get control of, maybe high blood pressure? Are you hoping the Paleo diet will improve your performance so you can set a new Fran PR? There are no right or wrong answers, whatever your motivation , the fact that you have decided to improve your health and take control of your nutrition is AWESOME!
Once you have determined your SPECIFIC goals and written them down in your food log, transfer them to post it notes and stick them everywhere; on the fridge, the dash of your car, save them in your phone and anywhere else you can think of that will keep your goals visible to help you stay focused and MOTIVATED!
Just for fun some goal setting statistics:
“There was a study done at Harvard between 1979 and 1989. Graduates of the MBA program were asked “Have you set clear written goals for your future and made plans to accomplish them?” The results of that question were:
1. Only 3% had written goals and plans
2. 13% had goals but not in writing
3. 84% had no specific goals at all
10 years later Harvard interviewed the members of that class again and found:
1. The 13% who had goals but not in writing were earning on average twice as much as the 84% of those who had no goals at all
2. The 3% who had clear, written goals were earning on average 10 times as much as the other 97% of graduates all together. The only difference between the groups is the clarity of the goals they had for themselves”
