Setting daily reminders to help you reach your fitness goals

A tool I use to reach a goal is to set daily reminders.

These little reminders can be almost anything. From a note on a mirror, to a calendar that reminds you every day.

I wanted a visual reminder that I could share with everyone. I wanted a big one that everyone would know about, one that would force me to follow through and reach for my goal and succeed in my event.


The event is the 2015 Reebok CrossFit Games Open

My Goal: To place in the top third worldwide in the 40-44 Masters Division. (Approximately 8000 people competing).

The Prize: Well I’m actually going for a six-pack stomach. Yep, I want the looks. I know that I have to eat right all the time to win that prize. I know that there is no way I can eat bad or skip training to perform well in the event.  A by-product of the change in my diet, and training will be that six pack.

Over the past year, I’ve slipped. Life has got in the way, and I need to get back on track. So the Open is a great choice to get back on track.

I got the idea for my daily reminder last month. One thing I see every day is my face. Another thing I have always done (except for my goatee days), is shave.

It was then decided; I would grow a beard to remind me everyday of my goal, and the prize of those abs I want.

The beard is itchy, looks straggly, and I sure annoys my wife, but it is an in my face reminder of what I am going after. Plus it lets others know what I am going after daily.
