Do you have a clear goal?

Having a solid and clear goal for yourself is a way that you can set yourself up to be accountable and ultimately to succeed.

If you haven't already made a goal for yourself with regards to your health and fitness then I suggest you do so.

There are many goals to choose from.

•Weight loss goals

•Muscle building goals

•Fitness goals

•Health goals

Here a few examples...

I would like to lose 10kg in the next 6 months and lose 4 inches from my waist.

I would like to increase my chest and back measurements and my arm measurements by 1-2 inches in the next 6 months.

I would like to decrease my 5km run time by 3 minutes in the next 6 months.

I would like to lower my cholesterol and .y blood sugar the next time I go for my check up in 6 months time.

Notice how each goal is specific.

A lot of people give themselves open ended goals. This isn't necessarily bad but it gives us an excuse for not striving towards our goals.

Alternatively sometimes we put too much pressure on ourselves to achieve our goals.

The person who says "I want to lose 4 stone in 3 months for my friends wedding" usually has a hard time sticking to that goal as it requires a lot more effort than they first thought.

Start small, set yourself a goal you know you can easily achieve and then set the bar higher once you've achieved that.

Be Smart...

S. Specific

M. Measurable

A. Achievable

R. Realistic

T. Time based

Health is Wealth
