Your 2022 Goals

What does your fortune cookie say?

As you noticed, I didn’t say New Years Resolution. To me that word resolution is harsh and too firm which most people fail. Goals are easier to achieve them. Now I am going to ask a few questions to help you achieve your goals, write down the answers. I will use weight loss as an example which is a popular personal goal. Question 1: Why do you want to achieve this goal? Health reasons, or fit in a dress for a special occasion as examples. Question 2: How do you plan to achieve this goal? Like what habits you need to change for the new ones. An example: Improve my eating habits, not use salt and sugar and walk 5 times a week.(As you noticed I don’t use the word diet because they don’t work!). Question 3: When do you plan to start, and when will happen during the day? An example: Start on Monday January 3rd; eat 3 meals a day; when you will exercise days and time. Question 4: What habits do I need to change? When we have new goal(s), we have to change a couple habits to achieve them. An example: plan your meals for the week and write a grocery list or get up a little earlier to exercise. As a coach, I ask these questions first to know their goals and commitment. Then their work and life schedule to figure out their training schedule and be flexible. Things happen out of our control but it is finding your way back to be on track with the goal. I wish all good luck with your 2022 goals. Be safe and healthy! @pamhouck

  1. Hi Pam,

    Thank you for adding me to your list 🙂

    You mentioned the importance of eating breakfast and I am new here, so forgive me if you have already talked about this, but I was wondering what you eat for breakfast, or if you could give some examples of what a good breakfast would consist of?

    Thank you,
