It is so important to have goals that help to keep you consistent and accountable.
The best goals are SMART
There are plenty of articles about this online but today look at your goals.
Instead of saying 'I want to lose weight, put on muscle and look like a fitness model' Think about what you have to do to get there, set yourself an overall goal and then many smaller ones.
Overall Goal - To reduce my body fat percentage by 5% by the 31st of December.
GREAT, now how are you going to get there?
- To complete at least 45 minutes of weight training or HIIT 6 days this week.
- Prepare and plan my food intake to bring to work every day this week.
- Swap my morning or afternoon snack for a protein shake to keep my metabolism firing and increase my overall protein intake every day this week.
You can mark these goals off on a calendar and you have something that will keep you focused. You can't half-heartedly do these goals, it's either 'Yes I achieved it' or 'No I Failed', let's try again next week.
