For the past 6 months I have been participating in a program called Gladiator School at my local gym. We are just finishing up the first term for the year and leading into term 2 with the focus been on our individual goals. The problem for me is I don't know what my fitness or health goals are anymore.
Where to from here? What do I want to do? I'm maintaining my weight within 2 kilograms of my goal weight, although those do tend to be upward of my goal and I'd happily drop those and another kilo or two but it is not really a goal that I'm driving towards, more an end product of cleaning up my diet and cutting back on those cakes and chocolate treats I keep sneaking in (Ammy if you're reading this, ignore that last sentence, there was no cakes, honest :) ) I'd love to be able to work towards a flat stomach with an awesome six pack but thanks to my gorgeous girls and my caesarean section first time round, I'm left with some flappy skin that only a surgeon and a knife can fix. I call it my cliff hanger.
I can't put my finger on what my drive is, what I want to work towards. I could increase my weights or look at running a full marathon but nothing I think of, puts that fire in my belly like what I was working towards last year. I need that something that will reignite my motivation and focus that I had last year. That's not to say that I have turned into a slack arse, I still train hard, I'm just not training towards anything, so feel a little directionless. I need some divine intervention. I need some direction.
