Reaching your health goals in 2020

First of all, to reach your health goals, you’re going to have to learn about consistency. Consistency is essential, no matter what you’re doing, because it sets you in the good habits you need to build to achieve your goals. I also talk about why goals are so difficult for people to achieve and how you can start avoiding these traps.

You might find that you’re more committed to reaching one type of goal than others. For example, career goals come easily to you, but your health goals always stay out of reach. A lot of this might come down to whether or not we actually believe we can achieve our goals. 

But inevitably, some of us won’t reach our goals, and that’s okay. It’s more important to think about what we achieved on the way to our goals, who we became in the process of working towards the goal, and really just reframe our mindset about goals.

To reach our health goals, we need to be specific about what the goal will look like. Why do you want to reach it? Think about every aspect of your goal so you’re perfectly clear about what you’re trying to achieve.

You also need to get in touch with your future self. They’ve already achieved your goal – what did they do to get to where they are? You might also find that you ask yourself this often while on the way to achieving your health goals. What would your future self do? You can name her, as well, so you’re even more connected.

I also talk about why achieving your health goals actually takes a certain amount of detachment from the outcome. It might sound counterintuitive, but it works. And finally, there might come a time your end goal isn’t serving you anymore. If this happens, it could be time to reassess what your goals are and what they should be.

What are your 2020 goals? Are your values aligned with what God wants from you? Do you feel like you deserve to reach your goals? Let me know in the comments below!

“The process of working towards goals is just as valuable as reaching the goal itself, if not more valuable.” (29:18)

“Whatever it is, that ‘why’ is what’s going to drive you so much more than having this clear idea of what.” (37:26)

“It doesn’t really matter what the actual goal is. All that matters is that you have the right steps to get there.” (49:54)

“It’s not just about whether or not you’re actually moving towards the goal, it’s also about whether you like the life that is being created with the steps that you’re taking.” (56:26)

  1. Laura, I am so happy this all came into my inbox. I love how your quote above states the process of working towards a goal is just as valuable as reaching the goal. Possibly even more valuable. Love it and never considered that myself. My name is Karen and I am 51 yrs old and weigh 289 lbs. (nice intro, right?) but in my mind, this is how I feel I introduce myself to everyone- I am an extrovert and not shy around people BIT when I meet someone new I am so self conscious of “WHO” they will see. Will it be Karen or Karen’s size? I am totally missing out on life as I obsess over this issue. Pictures, ugh, let me be in back. Parties, um would love to but nooo. Meet someone after being divorced 15 yrs. oh noooo. BUT Laura, my true “why” is I am NOT able to serve my Lord in the capacity He wants because of my weight. I have gone on two trips to UGANDA on medical missions But both times I struggled so bad- the plane ride and obsessing about the people around me being comfortable. Even going down the isle to the bathroom took major debating in my mind. Who would I bump on the way? The person next to me needing to get up etc. then getting to UGANDA and not being able to keep up and people graciously waiting for me and helping with bags. It just goes on and on. Now I am called to go back in July 2020 and again when I should be focused on the mission at hand I’m stressing about my weight. I pray you can help me with these mindsets. All to His Glory, Karen

    1. Thanks for sharing all of this Karen! I think being able to go on missions and be comfortable and active while there is a GREAT reason to work on your fitness and weight loss goals. I hope you continue to find inspiration from me and my podcast/blog!

  2. What is the link to the 5 day challenge. I listened to the section five times but it’s not clear. I wish you would have repeated it
