Goals for 2012, anybody?

If you are anywhere in the Midwest, it is likely that you are snuggled on your couch watching the snow fall during this first storm of the season.  It is also likely that if you had plans to hit the gym after work, they may have been foiled by a long commute or the urge to just get home.  Not to worry!  We are going to use this extra time at home to make something positive happen!

I have told many of my clients over the past weeks that I am not a huge fans of New Years' Resolutions, but I am a huge fan of setting goals for the year.  Over the next few posts I am going to take you through some goal setting exercises that are going to get you on the right track for 2012.    Tonight, do the following:

-Think about what was amazing for you in 2011- personal, fitness, or professional related.  
-Think about what really stunk in 2011.  Again, personal, fitness or professionally.  

It is best to write or type these out and put anything down that comes to mind.   When you are brainstorming there are no dumb answers (I think I learned that from my 4th grade teacher, thanks Ms Meyer!). After you have this list, take a look at it for a few minutes and continue to the next step:

- Write down everything you can think of that you would like to accomplish in the next few years.  It can be realistic, a reach or seem downright impossible.    Again, we are brainstorming, and these goals can be from all aspects of your life.

Doing this list correctly can take some time.  Maybe keep an open doc on your computer and just put things down as they enter your mind.  Keep working on this and stay tuned for my next post on what to do with this list to make these things happen!

Stay Cozy!
