How to set your fall fitness goals. Every season I try to set new fitness goals. Why, because with every year and season that passes, I feel that I need to re-evaluate parts of my body and mind.
This year I notice more nerve pain, mostly in my right arm, and weakness in my knees. I have thought a lot about what different exercises will help me with my problems, so I created a checklist to help you decide what will be best for you this fall.
Checklist for fall:
(1) What are your physical challenges currently?
Ans. (Example): Knees and arm pain
(a) What is your solution?
Ans. (Example): Continue with my chiropractor and join a gym that has an indoor pool.
(2) What are your mental challenges currently?
Ans. (Example): Feeling upset with my new problems and wondering why I have them.
(b) What is your solution?
Ans. (Example): Take more basic and restorative yoga
(3) How is your diet?
Ans. (Example): I could eat more and prepare food to take with me throughout my day
(c) What is your solution?
Ans. (Example): I ordered prepared meals from Terra’s Kitchen to deliver to my home
(4) Are you drinking enough water?
Ans. (Example): Yes, just recently
(d) What is your solution?
Ans. (Example): Fill my 24 oz water bottle 2-3 times a day
Next, make a promise to yourself that you will do your solutions on your checklist, and sign it.

Of course, if you want to add anything to your declaration, please do!
I find that I have more success achieving goals when I am relaxed NOT obsessed with a schedule; like I will do yoga M, W, F, and aqua conditioning TUE, THURS, SAT. This mindset works for me because it’s impossible for me to follow that schedule because of work. Instead, I will complete my checklist slowly, and add the activities throughout my week whenever it fits. Each week will look different and will give me variety. Variety always keeps me interested.
