Tips to help you reach your goals

When setting any sort of fitness / weight loss goal…make sure they’re S.M.A.R.T.: Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely. Here are a few tips that will help with your goal setting :

1. Tell friends, family and coworkers about your goals. Better yet…POST THEM TO FACEBOOK! This makes your goals more real and also holds you accountable.

2. Set multiple goals. Get excited and write down several goals! In addition to losing weight, what about dropping a few pant or dress sizes? Run a 5K or even an obstacle 5K, i.e., Warrior Dash or Spartan Race.

3. Be specific with your goals. Don’t just say you want to lose 30 pounds in 12 weeks, lay the specifics out. “I will lose 2-3 pounds every week until I reach 30 pounds.” This will make it easier to measure your progress and it keeps you moving forward. Small changes lead to big results!

4. Review your goals daily. Post them where you’ll see them; on your mirror, refrigerator or computer monitor. This will keep you mindful of your goal as well as your progress.
