Goal Setting | Tips & Suggestions

Motivation! StrongBoard Balance Board


Goal setting is one of the most important parts of developing an exercise routine. You have to keep reminding yourself what you are working towards! If your goals are big, and you have smaller, achievable goals along the way—you will be more successful in pursuing them. For example, setting a goal to lose 10 pounds in 10 weeks: each week the goal would be to lose 1 pound. This smaller 1 pound goal seems more attainable and will keep you from slacking off, getting overwhelmed, and help ensure you hit your 10 pound goal. With all that work ahead, it’s easy to get distracted; many people lose interest and 1 pound per week can feel tedious.

Create small and motivating goals for the end of each week. Try to find something that supports your overall goal and encourages you to keep going— taking a long and calming bath is more productive than checking out that new specialty donut shop down the street.

Here are some small reward suggestions to add a little indulgence along the path to a fitter you:
