You will recall from “Setting Fitness Goals Part I”, that I was in quite the dilemma with my exercise lifestyle until I learned how to set SMART goals. But it doesn’t stop there. You have to “inspect” what you “expect” and I’ll show you how.
Without ever setting fitness goals, I had been working out for over a year and thought it was going well. I felt like I was getting stronger. I didn’t seem quite as winded during my workouts. Playing sports with friends was going a bit better. And yet there was something missing in all of this. It took me a rather long time to figure it out because, as great as I thought everything was going, in reality, I was clueless.
