GOALS! Preseason task #3.

Goal setting.
I always struggled with this.
I always wondered if my goals were big enough. Other people seemed to dream much bigger than me.

But what I learned last round is I was putting so much pressure on myself to dream big that I wasn't having fun in the every day.

And that some of my goals are going to be smaller, every day things. These small goals are the ones that set you up to succeed.

This round I am doing Lean and strong with
Less focus on weight loss. More on getting lean muscle strength, definition, body shaping.
I am so excited!

But it does seem to make goal setting harder.
When you haven't even dipped your toes in the water how do you know what you will achieve?

So here are my goals.
Subject to much refinement as time goes by.

Lean and strong. Bring it on!
