so a quick post today about goals…
Its easy… Set them, big ones and small ones!!!
Wether its a weight loss goal for the week, the month, the year.
Maybe its a goal of not drinking soda all week, or no white bread for a month. I also like to set goals of exercise. Recently it was to do 40 pull-ups durning my workout. So I did 40 the first day… mind you they were assisted by a machine that helps with pull-ups but I got to 40. Now I do 40 on my own and it feels great!! Another goal was to bench press in reps my own body weight, well at first that wasn’t happening but now 3 months after setting that goal I am benching in reps 40lbs more then my body weight!!! The best part, and a goal I set for myself, was not to reward hitting my goals with food!!! That is the thing I always used to do and it was always the start of my downfall LOL
So set them big and small… be realistic and if this journey is new to you take baby steps! Have a great and healthy April!!
Great entry about goals. I always wonder about other options for non-food rewards people might have. What were some of yours? Or maybe you want to do an entry on rewards now!
Rewards would be things like, a new shirt or pants, maybe getting a babysitter and having movie night with my wife. I’ve also awarded my self spa treatments like a massage!
“…be realistic and if this journey is new to you take baby steps!” I totally agree. I keep my goals small and attainable.
