It’s okay to change your goals due to circumstances.
Simply because you have set a goal does not mean you are never allowed to change it.
As we move deeper into the holidays, it might be more difficult to stick to your goals (such as losing weight). That’s not a rationale for “giving up,” rather it’s an indication that you might want to adjust. After all, sticking to your program in January, when everyone else is doing it; is much easier than in December, when you feel like you’re all alone.
Adjust your goal to meet the conditions. Be realistic.
A goal “etched in stone” can be an excuse to give up when things get tough. Flexibility can be helpful.
