Fit Tip: Make Mini-Goals
Monday Morning Fit Tip;
TO REACH YOUR BIG GOALS!
Did you make a New Year’s Resolution? It’s great to have big fitness goals in mind, like wanting to run your first 5K or lose 30 pounds. Or maybe this year you want to be strong enough to do 30 push-ups without your knees on the ground. Big goals are wonderful, but it’s the little goals along the way that help us stick to a regular exercise routine – and achieve those big goals!
So before heading out for your run or strength-training session, make a specific goal for that workout. You’re more likely to cut your workout short if you don’t outline a short-term goal for that day. Before you even start, decide exactly what you’ll be doing. Tell yourself, “I’ll run 20 minutes,” or “I’ll complete five upper body exercises.” You’ll feel good once you accomplish your mini-goal, and once you get in the habit, you’ll be more likely to follow through on other goals you set.
