Setting Your Goals

16 Dec

Do you have goals? Is it time to set new ones? Or finish the ones you have set already? Statistics shows that people who set defined, measurable goals are 80% more likely to reach their desirable outcome. Now that 2013 is almost upon us, let’s figure out how you can set effective goals to kick your fitness plan into high gear!

Here are some U1st H&W tips on putting your goals in action:

  1. Keep it real: Be realistic. Set small and obtainable goals first. Instead of dropping 50 pounds, let’s start with shedding your first 5-10 lbs.
  2. Commit to time: Make a schedule that you know you can dedicate to. Whether if it’s 1 hour 3 times a week, or 30 minutes 5 times a week, once the time has been set, stick with it. *Tip: Having a workout buddy is a great way to commit to time. Since you are holding someone else accountable for your time and vice versa, you are more likely to stick to the schedule so you don’t let your buddy down.
  3. Recognize your setbacks: Knowing your weaknesses is the first step to conquering your goals. Identify what are your areas for improvement so you know what you are working for.
  4. Celebrate the small things: Give yourself some credit! Create a daily chart of progression. It’s the sense of accomplishment that will keep you going full speed toward the finish line.
