Fitness goals are an essential part of your journey to better health. Through setting goals, you are better able to hold yourself accountable and also keep you motivated during periods of low motivation. Here are three ways to set realistic, achievable goals that give you confidence and momentum.
1. Start small
Slow and steady wins the race, especially when it comes to creating positive and lasting change! You are far more likely to set yourself up for success if you set realistic and obtainable goals for yourself.
A smaller, achievable goal, such as going to the gym twice or three times a week, is more realistic than setting the goal of going to the gym five days a week - especially when you are just starting or new to training.
2. Enjoy the journey
Becoming a fitter, stronger and healthier you is not an overnight process. It takes weeks, even months of regular training to start seeing changes. Don't be put off by the time it takes to reach your desired result. Instead, enjoy and savour the many small victories along the way. Celebrate and reward yourself for showing up to the gym or cooking that healthy stir fry from scratch. This will make the journey all the more enjoyable, and before you know it you'll start seeing the results!
3. Be patient & consistent
It is crucial to play the long game when working towards your goals. Of course, in an ideal world all our goals and wishes would be instantaneous, but it is important to be realistic. The reality is that achieving your goals and becoming a healthier and happier you is a long term project. If you pick a goal that can be achieved over several months or a year, it will help you develop a long-term mentality!
