Let's Check In! Q2 - Goal Review & Calibration


I am back, just like I said I would be, it is the end of the 2nd quarter and time to take a breath and reflect on our health or fitness goal & progress. I want to know how it is going? How are you feeling?


Checking back in with myself quarterly is one of my key's to success. It's a bit of self-coaching to help me stay on track, but also a time to be honest about what I will need to keep moving forward, especially as I head into summer when my schedule changes dramatically.


I introduced my process in April and for July, I've a added a few questions to our quarter 2 calibration. If you feel stuck, want support or need that accountability that comes along with a coach - Let's connect! One of my most favorite things to do is help you create a plan that you can stick with. Our main objective for the review is to answer this question:


Do I want to reaffirm or revise my goal(s)?

Step 1: Reconnect with Your Why

  • Why did I set this goal?

  • Is that still important to me?

  • What are benefits of accomplishing this?

  • How is this goal helping me become the person I want to be?

Step 2: Draw Out the Positives

  • What has been energizing about this goal?

  • What have I learned about myself in the process?

  • What new knowledge do I have?

  • Is there benefit that I didn't anticipate but am getting?

  • How and when am I being most successful?

Step 3: Calibrate

  • Am I doing the things I said I would do?

  • How consistent am I?

  • Am I getting the results I anticipated?

  • Have I faced new obstacles or barriers that I didn't anticipate?

  • How confident am I in my progress? (1 = no confidence, 10= total confidence)


Step 4: Decide to Reaffirm or Revise

  • If your "why" still resonates, if you still see positives and you're somewhere in the 9/10 on the confidence scale, keep on your plan.

  • If you've plateaued in the results area, but are confident in your activities and behaviors, stick with it. Plateaus are normal, think of where you are as just a new baseline.

  • If you are not where you want to be, revising is not giving up. Revising is being real. Revising is adjusting to the conditions. Revising is recommitting.

  • Some of the ways I revise but stay consistent in summer can be found in my June 7th post.

“Too often, we fall into an all-or-nothing cycle with our habits. The problem is not slipping up; the problem is thinking if you can't do something perfectly, then you shouldn't do it at all.” – James Clear

It is challenging to keep going and be consistent. But you can do it. If you want to create a fitness habit, desire consistency, need reinforcement or just want someone to answer the "what should I do" question, give me a shout. I am here to help you take care of yourself so that you can be your best.
