Setting Goals the Right Way

So, we all have goals. Some may be more formal others just a small one at the back of their minds. We don't need to be aiming to go to the Olympics or anything like that, just maybe to get healthier by the wedding coming up or anything you want. You may of heard of setting goals called SMART GOALS, they are very strategic and too complicated for me so I thought I would find the do's and don'ts for goal setting.


-Decide the end goal of what you want to achieve, what is the final achievement?

-Think of how you would be able to achieve your goals, do you need equipment?

-Set mini goals, if your end goal is long, break it up so it's more manageable! 

-Be specific, don't say "I want to eat more fruit!" It has to much wiggle room!

-Track your progress, whether it's weight or maybe the more energy you have.

-Reward yourself, after you have achieved one of your mini-goals give yourself a treat this can help to keep you motivated.

-Make sure your committed, don't do anything your not passionate about.


-Be down if you feel yourself reaching a plateau (stage of not improving) the progress slows down after you start.

-Obsessively check your progress, instead of weighing yourself everyday check more like 1-2 times a week. 

-Think you will never fail, now no matter how hard you try you will fail at some point but it's how you bring yourself up from these failures that matters.

-Set too many goals. You can have many mini ones to achieve a big goal but don't have many separate ones. This could force you to loose focus and not achieve any.

 Stay focused and Good luck!
