Eat Pray Wear Love: Daily Goals

Daily Goals


We're halfway through January, so I thought it would be a good time to check in and see how everyone is doing with their fitness goals. Are you crushing it? I'm sure you are! 

I feel like so many people I know are on the Whole 30 right now. Anyone else? It's a great program, but honestly a little too intense for me. I mean, no wine for 30 days...need I say more?!

I recently gave up sugar for 30 days, which has been pretty easy.  Especially with treats like nice cream and Radiantly Raw Chocolate to fulfill my sweet tooth. But the thought of having to forego bread and wine in addition to that, is too much for me to bear. (Although I have certainly cut back on both.) For me, small decisions are more manageable and set you up better for success.
I recently read a little bit about the concept of setting daily goals. The idea is that instead of making ginormous goals that set you up for failure, you set small, daily goals, in hopes that you would be more likely to accomplish them.

 For example, instead of saying "I'm giving up Facebook for good!" you might set a goal of giving up Facebook for the day. (Not even going to lie, that would be hard one for me. Maybe that should be my goal for the day?) 

Setting a daily goal reshapes the way you approach that goal, setting you up for success. Is anyone else working on a similar concept? I'd love to hear what some of your goals are.

I still have a few long term goals - fitness being one of them, and although that's one I almost always fail at, I've been pretty proud of my progress so far. I've been committing to 3 days of spin every week (more on that later). I'm hoping to add at least 1 night of yoga a week, and some toning exercises, but perhaps I'm setting the bar a little high?

I have worn these leggings from Reebok to both cycling class and yoga, and they worked well for each class. These leggings come equipped with sweat wicking material to keep you cool and dry, but I especially love the pattern! This lightweight jacket is going to be on major repeat, as well. It's perfect for everything from hiking to grocery store runs. 

What are your thoughts on setting daily goals? Is it something you have been applying? Would love to hear some of your tricks for crushing it in the comments below!

  3. Those leggings are so cool and unique! A bunch people I know are doing the Whole 30 too! I don't like vegetables (I know I know, I'm almost 26, time to grow up haha) so I could never do it, but i try to cut back as much as possible on sugar!

  8. I can't imagine doing the Whole30, I feel like it's way too intense. I prefer to balance everything instead of completely removing something from my diet.
    Those leggings are so cute, love the print.

  9. I am petrified of the whole 30. I agree with setting small manageable goals. Love everything about this work out look. Those leggings are amazing!

  10. Whole 30 sounds like hell to me. I'm pretty darn good about eating to achieve my fitness goals but I also believe in balance. Plus - what do you do after its over? Do you do it forever? introduce things back nnto your diet? For me my nutrition needs to be consistent and maintainable so I stick with it - whole 30 is not that. Alright done ranting for the day - keep up the SPIN. I just started teaching it again!

  12. The Whole30 is too intense for me too, because no wine/champs! I think it would be great to cleanse my body like that, but honestly don't have the willpower! Loving those leggings, perfect inspiration for a great workout <3

  13. This is a great workout look! I love your idea of eliminating (or at least cutting down) sugar. Whole 30 and no wine is definitely not doable for me!

  19. I've been reading up on and contemplating Whole30 but it's definitely intimidating! But I'm mostly interested to try it for the reintroduction phase of it and see how my body really like's certain foods. Well see!
