You are doing very well so far. Now think about it, when a baby is on the way, do the parents just sit back and say we will make a plan once the baby is here? No, they start to prepare for the baby in great detail, from clothes to the room to living and work arrangements. If you want to be a success, you must be as intentional with your goals. Control the controllable. If you want to become the fittest you have ever been, map out a plan of how you will get there. From your diet to your training regime and set positive goals.
For example: I will not eat white bread should rather be I will eat brown bread. Remember to keep your goals SMARTER:
Specific: Be very specific and keep it simple e.g. I want to lose 10kg
Measurable: Ensure your goal is not open ended, like I want to lose weight. Losing could be 1kg!
Attainable: Yes, everything is possible! Keep it real though. Losing 10kg in a day won’t cut it!
Relevant: Ensure your goal speaks to your game! As a boxer, if losing 10kg will make you fall out of your preferred weight class, then you need to re-think it
Time-based: Set the time e.g. 1 year. Then break it down into bite size chunks. This could be in 3 month intervals
Evaluate: Life happens! Be open to that. If you pick up an injury, losing 10kg may be impacted as may not be able to get out and train
Re-adjust: Be agile. Not for the sake of it, but as situations arise. This is why evaluation on regular intervals is important.
