Delete Posted April 10, 2015 Report Share Posted April 10, 2015 Round 3! FIGHT!! After getting knocked on my arse last round and barely beating the count, I am back up. Corner has me patched up and I am ready to deal some damage of my own. My plan is to keep moving! I stop moving, I get knocked the flip out! I keep moving, I will come out of this round with the momentum. Following is my reset, starting 4/27/15. My main focus is to establish morning and evening routines as habit.I have identified two issues as likely reasons behind recent failures to achieve my goals. First is my weakness and general undoing, the internet. Limiting my internet use will be the primary factor to ensuring success. Second is a lack of motivation. I need to really grasp the intrinsic motivational factors to accomplishing my goals. I am ready to go all in with my goals. I WANT THIS!! Here goes! Goal #1: Build Habits7 days per week Daily routine is as follows:wifi and computer will remain off until daily routine is complete drink 48 oz. of water workout stretch meditate dailiesEvening routine is as follows:turn off wifi and computer by 1930 get ready for bed and prep for next day brush teeth in bed by 2015 Goal #2: Workout7 days per week MOVE EVERYDAY!Simple. Everyday I will either strength train or do some conditioning. Whatever my body feels like doing, that is what I will be doing. I will do this first thing when I wake up or as soon as I get off work. Goal #3: Stretch7 days per week Become more flexible. I will stretch after EVERY workout and some. Goal #4: Meditate7 days per week Stop and just be. At least 5 minutes each morning, I will ready my mind and soul for the day. MotivationI want to build these habits now in order to make life easier when I have my hands full with a kid. If I am going to want to continue to accomplish my goals, I am going to have to be able to balance life efficiently.I want these habits to rub off on my child.I want to improve the quality of my life and maintain my health and fitness in order to actively participate in my child's life long into the future. When looking up ways to be better motivated, I found two questions that I felt like I needed to answer. What is my life purpose, what drives me?Before I found out that I was going to be a father, I don't think I had a personally acceptable answer to this. Now it is easy. I want to be the best possible person and role model for my child. I want to be able, to the best of my abilities, to raise my child to becoming the best person possible. Most importantly, I want to show my child my unconditional love and to love unconditionally.What are my top 10 values and is my life aligned with these values?Integrity Wisdom Simplicity Caring Bravery Self-sufficient Playful Kindness Love BalanceI believe I am pretty on point with these values and hope to instill them in my child. I expect to further develop these values along with my child. 1 Quote Link to comment
