Hey friends!

Back in June, I wrote at length about how to reach your goals but I wanted to circle back to this again with a laser focus on fitness goals.

We cannot expect to achieve our healthy lifestyle goals without a plan.

“You’ve got to be very careful if you don’t know where you are going because you might not get there.” – Yogi Berra

Let’s Get It Started

Here are three simple steps to reaching your goals.

🏃‍♀️ Step 1

  • Break your big goal down into smaller goals to meet in a shorter period of time.
  • Example: lose 5 pounds this month, go to the gym 3x a week for a month.

📝 Step 2

  • Break that down even further into what actions you can do TODAY that is possible and doable and will move you towards your smaller goal.
  • Write down the EXACT steps you need to take to complete that action.
    • Example:
      • big goal = lose 30 pounds,
      • small goal = lose 5 pounds + go to gym 3x/week
      • steps = get up and move right now, join a gym, hire a trainer, pack a gym bag the night before, drive to the gym right after work, etc…

📅  Step 3

  • Schedule those actions into your calendar.
  • Example: schedule your gym time, schedule movement breaks throughout your day, plan your meals the day before

🔑 If you schedule your workouts in your calendar, you are going to be more likely to do them.

Wrap Up

The key to succeeding with your fitness goals – and any goal really – is to

  • identify your goal
  • determine the steps needed to reach that goal
  • develop a plan of how 
  • when you will complete those steps
  • put that plan in writing
  • then hold yourself accountable to your plan
