Where are you?
by Felipe Polanco

Good day CFS!!  Hope you’re all enjoying today’s weather.  Today’s date is April 29, 2012.  Does that date ring any bells?  No?!  Good, it shouldn’t.  Its just today’s date!!  However, it does hold SOME significance.

As of today, 120 of the 366 days in 2012 have gone by.  That’s one-third of 2012 gone.  120 days you’re not going to get back.  Am I saying this to anger you?  Definitely not!  I’m saying this so you can reflect on your goals for 2012.

Have you made a plan yet to accomplish your goals?  If haven’t, why not!?  Grab a coach and let them help!  If you have, how are you progressing?  If you have, awesome!!!  If you haven’t, don’t worry.  The important thing is that you’re working towards your goals.  Again, if you’re in doubt of your plan or lack of progression, grab a coach!

What’s that…you haven’t written out your goals yet!?  Seriously!?  GO RUN A LAP!!!  I’m kidding…kind of.  Take some time on this gorgeous Sunday and write down your goals.  Don’t know where to start?  You can start here.  Go ahead and read that post…

Hey…welcome back!!  Ok, now that you’ve read about making your road map, make sure to make each goal measurable and attainable.  What do I mean by measurable?  Don’t just say “I want to do pull-ups”.  Are they strict, kipping or butterfly?  How many?  By when?  What do I mean by attainable?  If you’re goal is to deadlift 600lbs, awesome!!  Not so much if your current deadlift is 135lbs.  Or 30 unbroken muscle-ups if you can barely hold onto the pull-up bar.  Catch my drift?

Even though Rome wasn’t built in a day, it WAS built one stone at a time with plenty of set-backs.  The most important thing to remember is to have a plan, keep checking back on it, and keep moving forward, no matter how small the steps.
