It seems to happen every time something big happens in my life. I work for weeks, months or even longer to achieve a certain goal and once I reach it, I don’t know what to do with myself. I get Post Goal Blues. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a fitness goal, I remember feeling this way after every party or event I host. There’s something about working toward something that’s almost more gratifying than the actual event itself.
This Men’s Physique competition was a big one. I worked for 7 months to stand on stage for maybe a total of 10 minutes, and now what? Don’t get me wrong, I wouldn’t change what I accomplished for anything, but after about a week my mind starts thinking of what I need to do next to keep that same sense of gratification that I get while prepping for an event or goal.
