Q: Is having 6 pack abs a good goal?
A: No. This is an outcome goal. Many outcomes are out of our control so we should not focus on them. Instead we should focus on what we do have control over: our behaviors. Like sleep, steps, workouts, and food logs completed where we hit our macros. Objectify these behaviors to avoid black and white thinking - a common thought distortion.
