It’s been so nice not having to stay up super late writing. I’ve enjoyed the break a lot 🙂
BUT!!! I totally miss writing to you! So here I am! I’m going to come up with a writing schedule for myself because that really helped me blog more consistently. If I tell myself to do it when I “feel like it” – I’m going to push it towards the end of the day and by then, I’ll be too tired to blog.
So, I’m going to try to blog 3 times a week! Let’s say Monday, Wednesday, and Friday for now. I’ll start with that and see how it goes. I am leaving for a 2-week vacation in about a week (OMG FREAKING OUT BECAUSE SO MUCH TO DO), so I don’t think I can commit to this schedule then.
Anyway! This blog post is gonna be all about my “Next 90”! I’ve decided that my focus will be on stretching my limits – in mind, body, and career.
Let’s start it off with some clear goals for my Next 90.
NEXT 90 MIND GOALS:
1. Blog at least 3x a week (except when on vacation) to speak my feelings and clear thoughts
I am so happy that because of my 90 day journey, I now am no longer scared of writing. It feels good to me again. I’m excited that blogilates.com has returned to being my fitness diary. So grateful to be home again.
NEXT 90 BODY GOALS:
1. Front splits with hips closer to floor
2. Middle splits with crotch to the floor (will try really hard but might need more time)
3. Wheel with hands underneath shoulders (will try really hard but might need more time)
4. Pointier feet
I need to SERIOUSLY make stretching a daily thing. Workouts I do pretty much 6x a week as a part of my routine. But stretching – I have not worked up to making that a routine thing yet.
I think I will need to find a new TV show to watch so I can stretch for the entire duration of the episode. That will help me get through it! Any suggestions on what’s good these days? I love historical dramas and documentaries but I can’t handle anything scary!
NEXT 90 CAREER GOALS:
1. Get ahead. Work towards planning out content and product launches at least 3-6 months in advance. This will create seamless workflow for our team, and time to breathe and achieve, without feeling like I have to keep doing more because I “feel” like I am not doing enough.
Good news is that I’ve already started planning out 2020’s POPFLEX launches and guys, it is going to be an EXCITING YEAR – as long as my entire system works according to plan! There are a lot of people and moving parts involved, so some of it is not 100% in my control.
I have created a 2020 visual calendar of important product launches, marketing campaigns, and events throughout the year and I am feeling really good about how it all is looking. I love seeing my year in front of me. It tells me exactly where I need to go, and now my job is to figure out how to get there. I love it. Feeling really good about this.
Currently, I have not “caught up” to being 3-6 months ahead. I am dying right now, but I will get there, I know it. Just gotta put my head down and work really hard so that I can breathe easier later on. I NEED to get to this place of calmness, or else I will literally die stressed out, feeling like I never caught up.
Alrighty, here’s where I am right now!
Shoulders are back are SO TIGHT! I want my palms to get under my shoulders! I’ve got like a foot to go! Here George is trying to encourage me!
This is my standing split. Trying my best with that pointed foot, but looks pretty flat! Will need to do my arch stretches.
Front splits. See that hole underneath my hip/crotch area? I want to try to eliminate that hole eventually. I will be practicing over splits to try to get there.
Middle splits. The enemy. It hurts so bad. Goal is to get that crotch to the floor. Can I do it!!?? I better get my crotch to touch the floor ONCE in this lifetime.
Stretching teaches you a lot. About being ok with taking time. About embracing patience. About finding peace in being still. About leaning into the discomfort in order to get better.
I’m excited for this Next 90!!
What’s your 90 day focus?
Like I’ve said before, 90 days is long enough so that you have room for making mistakes and learning from them, but short enough so that you feel the pressure to stay focused. It is truly the perfect amount of time to break bad habits, build good ones, and create a new lifestyle for yourself.
Think about one thing you want to get better at. What’s that one thing you’ve always wanted to do but never got a chance to put energy towards it? What is that?
I want you to write in the comments what that is. Consider it your declaration to the universe!! Now, will you decide to commit to making your dream come true? Or will you leave it as a dream? You decide.
If you’re not sure what you want to do on your next 90, I have an idea for you. Because you guys follow Blogilates, most of you are obviously veteran POPsters! Meaning…you’ve memorized my videos, you know my moves by heart, and you’ve inspired your own family and circle of friends to get fitter with your healthy lifestyle. So…wanna take it a step further?
Have you ever thought of teaching fitness as a side hustle?
Seriously! If you love working out, you could get paid to do it! And get this – most gyms that will hire you, will ALSO give you a free membership, so you never have to pay to go to the gym ever again!
I started teaching when I was a sophomore in college and that decision back then changed the course of my entire life. I mean, I thought it was a cool way to make extra money for textbooks and clothes, plus I enjoyed how good it felt to teach a class. But I had ZERO IDEA how my love for group fitness would lead me to where I am today.
If you’re curious…here’s what I say. Head to a training. It will challenge you to become a stronger, more confident version of who you are right now. It will teach you how to be a leader, and how to teach other people to become stronger, more confident versions of themselves. And you know what? It’s one of the most rewarding feelings in the world.
