Happy Monday! This Monday as with every Monday I want to share some motivation, some inspiration…Make it Happen! When in comes to your health you can’t sit back and wait for things to happen. You must first devote yourself to an idea, intention a goal! Next, plan it out; write it down, overcome your fears and own it! Once you’ve done that you MUST act on it, work hard and make it happen!
“Some people want it to happen, some wish it would happen, some make it happen.”
Go Make it Happen!
Happy Monday! It’s at this point into the New Year that most people tend to fall off the New Year’s Resolution wagon. My advice to you, get rid of your resolutions and set some realistic, attainable goals towards a healthy lifestyle!
Example: Lets say on January 1, you said I want to lose 20lbs by February 1! What? 20lbs of fat? That is not realistic at all!
Here is an example of a more realistic goal: My goal is to lose 1 to 2 lbs of fat a week with a total fat loss of 8 to 10 lbs by the end of February!
Do you see the difference? Now you must make sure you establish habits that will support you as you work towards your goal!
Do you have a health or fitness goal? What habits do you have in place to support your goal?
Motivational Monday – Goals Into Habits
Happy Monday! Are you ready to reach your goal? When you set your intention/goal, the odds of you reaching that goal are not very good unless your habits already support it. So if your goal is to become more flexible, but you are not doing anything to increase your flexibility such as, yoga or stretching, you’ll need to change your habits in order to achieve your goal.
Think in terms of your daily habits, especially if your goal is a big one. Nothing to complex just simple daily habits that are easier to do and maintain.
Now write down the habits you will complete daily, working them into your everyday life. Be specific! Identify when, where, and how you’ll implement them. Leave nothing to chance.
