When you want to make a difference in the way you look and feel setting goals is essential?
Goals keep you motivated, giving you an idea of where you are now and where you want to be so you can plan your way to a better you.
However, sometimes people take this vital step for granted, setting unrealistic and unachievable goals which leave them always falling short of that goal and unmotivated to continue on their health and fitness journey.
So when you’re setting goals, avoid disappointment and instead think SMART?
The first thing you need to do when setting goals is to make sure the result you’re wanting is specific. Wanting to “be slimmer” is not a specific goal and not having that specific goal to achieve but rather a general idea is a sure way to see your motivation decrease.
Having a specific goal also allows you to better plan on how to achieve it. For example, you want to lose 5kg of fat? Great, now you can start researching the best course of action for fat loss, what you should be including in your diet and what kind of exercises will be the most effective for you to reach your goal.
