I thought this topic would be appropriate for a blog post because everyone has goals. It may be with your health, weight, physical activity or something else! I recently learned how to set a GOOD Goal! You might be thinking every goal is GOOD, right? Well I want to help you set goals that you can really pull off!
So example #1 is a goal that I hear everyday! It is so common but what does it mean?
#1 I WANT TO LOSE WEIGHT!
Losing weight is great but how are you going to do it? So before you set your goal you need to look at the dietary and physical changes that need to happen to reach your goal!
For example if you set a goal around physical activity, it will definitely help you lose weight!
So start by looking at the changes that need to happen to reach your true ( BIG ) goal, and make a small goal with these changes! Then set a measurable goal. Doing more physical activity is not measurable! But walking so many miles or minutes is! Next make a realistic goal like walking 30 minutes this is definitely realistic! ( 6 miles a day, not so realistic for a busy mom) Lastly make sure it’s forgiving! You want to walk 30 minutes 5 out of 7 days a week! ( 7 out of 7 days would not be forgiving ) See you just make a great goal that is measurable, realistic and forgiving and that is most definitely going to help you with your healthy living!
