Yes, girlfriend, you can achieve your goals, no matter how old you are, no matter how big or small the goals may be. Become the person you want to be. It is possible.
Forget about the disappointment in yourself, time after time, when you just can’t seem to stick with the goals you’ve set. Whether it’s weight loss, exercise, healthy eating, relationships, learning a new skill, career based, or something else entirely, the inability to see them through can be devastating.
Cue the voice in your head: Another failure. Transform your life after 50? You’re too old to change. You’re not good enough for that. If you’d been smarter it would have been different. You know the drill.
But what if you could stare those goals straight in the eye and say, “I’m the boss of you, and I say that it’s gonna happen!”
And then it happens. The weight comes off…the exercise becomes a part of your daily routine…your daily eating habits are healthy, and you enjoy it…the relationship is healing…the salsa lessons are coming along fabulously…you’ve started that business that was always just a dream…
How cool would that be?
I know how hard it is to change as we mature (that’s a polite way of saying we’re getting older). I’m in my 60’s and have faced some devastating challenges. But I discovered the secret to not letting anything stop me from doing what I know is best for me, including setting and achieving my goals, no matter how big or small they may be.
I learned that I have to be in balance…my body, my mind, and my spirit (my soul, inner strength, my heart). ALL of me needs to come to the party or I’m not fully committed to making the change, or meeting the goal. And, it takes some time, and commitment, to get there and stay there day by day.
It sounds so simple, and in some respects it is. But saying to yourself, “oh okay, I get it, not so hard to do” and actually finding that balance, then living it every day, are two very different things, my friend.
We can be so quick to make a commitment for someone else, to do something for them, spend time with them, care for them, help them, etc.
But when it comes to us and what WE need, we think it’s selfish or self centered, so we shove that to the back burner for when we have time. And then what happens? Yah. Not much.
Say for example, you set a goal of regular exercise and fitness. Well, if my goal of a consistent fitness routine that includes aerobic and strength training is totally cool in my head and my heart, but if my body is worn out from lack of sleep, too much sugar, running around like a crazy person trying to please everyone in the family…the body just won’t be able to perform.
That’s what Fresh Start Challenge is all about. When I created this 7-day email series of challenges, I looked at what I had discovered about myself that allowed me to keep moving forward with my goals, and my life, in spite of the setbacks, heartaches, and changes that life had thrown at me.
The foundation of this simple email course is to spend the time, honestly and privately, to revive your mind, nourish your body, and refresh your spirit. Over the 7 days of the course, you’ll read, watch, write, ponder and set a plan to regain the balance in any of these areas that may have fallen out of kilter.
Once you’ve recognized and embraced the areas of yourself that make YOU who you are as a person, you’ll be much better equipped and prepared to meet your goals going forward. It doesn’t matter if you decide to make some healthy changes in January of a new year, or in the spring, or the summer, or the fall…the day you are actually ready to move forward is the perfect day to begin!
So yes, girlfriend, you can achieve your goals, no matter how old you are, no matter how big or small the goals may be. You just need to find the balance. The balance with your mind, body, and spirit.
…the day came that the scale actually moved to a new place…one that made you smile and feel like the effort has been worth it
…you realized that you’re eating healthy, clean food out of habit, not because you have to…and you enjoy it
….your energy level was higher, every day, and walking that extra mile didn’t seem like an endless journey anymore
…your home has a fresh, clean and uncluttered look to it because you’ve actually gone through the process of removing all of the extra stuff, and it wasn’t so bad after all!
…you have the confidence to talk to your partner about what is really going on in your heart and relationship, and you know you’ll be okay
…you registered for that class you’ve been wanting to take for so long, and didn’t experience the overwhelming feeling of ‘not being good enough’ to learn something new
…the thought of going shopping to try on clothes brought some excitement and anticipation instead of dread at having to look at yourself in a dressing room mirror
…your dream of starting your own business took shape and became a reality instead of something that you kept telling yourself was just for younger people
…how would you feel if that goal, that new skill, that uncharted direction, that step never taken, actually felt achievable
Fresh Start Challenge is a 7 day email course, with one lesson sent to your inbox every day. Easy peasy. No need to remember that you have to go to a separate site and log in (what was that password…???), the material is delivered straight to you.
The ‘challenge’ part of the course is a personal one that is just for you. I won’t ask you to join a Facebook group and bare your soul, or send me anything that I ask you to complete. You are challenging yourself to find the balance in your life so that you can find success with your goals!
And I want you to know that we’re talking about practical, usable, real life stuff here, not some mystical ju-ju about finding yourself in the universe or the stars.
You’ll discover how a positive mindset, a healthy morning routine, proper nutrition, regular exercise, daily self-care…how these simple actions have such a huge impact on your overall psyche and ability to focus, reach your goals, and become the person you want to be.
Here’s what you’ll learn:
The best time to start bringing yourself into balance is right now! You have nothing to gain by waiting until your life is less hectic, until the schedule clears out, until the weather gets better, or until the cows come home.
You’re worth spending 15 to 25 minutes a day for the next 7 days on yourself. Trust me. You’re worth it!
Hi, I’m Candi Randolph, a midlife blogger from InspireMyStyle.com and the creator of Fresh Start Challenge.
I’ve always been a goal-setter. It’s part of who I am and what I do. So, working toward accomplishing the goal, whatever it is, comes naturally to me.
But you know what? Working toward a goal and actually getting to achieve it are two very different things!
Life has a way of teaching us lessons whether we like it or not. And, life has taught me that no matter what happens, it’s up to me to keep putting one foot in front of the other, always moving forward.
I’ve also learned that in order to keep those little feet moving in a positive direction, my mind, body, and spirit have to also be working together.
Why? Because they are enmeshed together, and if one part isn’t buying into the project (that would be me and my life!), things are going to become a bit stagnant, even start moving backwards into areas that I don’t want to go.
So I work hard to keep that balance in place…my mind…my body…my spirit (a/k/a my heart, my soul, my inner self) because I know that if everything is in sync and working together, I can accomplish anything I put my mind to!
And you can, too. 🌺

You’ll probably spend between 15 and 25 minutes per lesson on average. Some are longer than others. There is always a Challenge, which is your assignment for the lesson. That could take a little time to complete, especially if you’re honest with yourself and want to make some changes in your life.
