Tips for setting goals
"The Power of Goal Setting is so easy to follow!" Your goals should be coupled with a plan of action. Your plan of action defines what you plan to do to achieve your goals. Your plan of action should also be SMART
Writing it down and making your vision plain will give you a higher success rate of achieving your goals. Documenting your smart goal setting plan and everything you put in your body and even your feelings will help you with this whole process
This can be easy to do. Writing helps you to measure your progress, your mistakes and it will even allow you to see your successes as you accomplish your goals. Write down what you want to look like and how you imagine your new life to be...in your new healthy body
Smart goal setting is the key to any achievement you may accomplish. I always recommend following the acronym SMART, it dictates that goals should be specific, measurable, achievable, realistic, and time-sensitive.
S = be specific what size you’d like to be, what you would like to be able to accomplish
M = measurable and defined in such a way that we can evaluate progress
A = achievable; i.e., challenging, but not impossible
R = realistic; a reasonable and attainable measure you can accomplish
T = time-based; that is, they are linked to a specified date
You have to take action! Just pull out your calendar and decide when you will take action on your first goal. No point setting a goal unless there’s an action plan to go with it. Make a list of things you’re going to do to attain your goal, both – long and short-term. In the past whenever I have aspirations of losing weight I would fail to prepare.
Like the saying goes “If you fail to prepare then you’re preparing to fail. It’s an absolutely true statement. Think about it, what have you failed at? Or better yet what goal have you set that you didn’t complete for lack of preparation? I prove my point.
Tips for setting goals
It can be overwhelming to think about your end goal. If all you say to yourself is, "I have to lose weight, I have to lose weight by the end of the month," you are missing the incremental goals that form the base of the large goal. Refocus and gain some perspective. Think about creating an online weight loss profile, meeting some friends or joining a social club with other who want to lose weight is a start.
Try not to be to discouraged if weight loss takes a little longer than expected. Effective, long-lasting weight loss involves not only diet and exercise, but changing your lifestyle. Choosing a realistic weight loss goal is just the first step in working towards your ideal weight.
