2014 is well underway, and this also means that you are now three months into your Fitness Goals. Yes these can also be called New Year’s resolutions, and improvements for the new year. Are you on track? Have you kept up with your promise, that ultimate goal you had in mind?
To be honest it is very common to see a lot of people plan for these incredible lifestyle changes, only to go back to the bad habits that they started with. Let’s look into this and find out how or where the mistakes were made. Goals, wether they be fitness, scholastic or financial all have to have a detailed plan. The first thing about setting a goal is that it must have a date when the goal is to be achieved. Let’s take an example of someone that wants to lose 40 lbs. The goal was made New Years Eve, like so many others, and the plan lasted only 1.5 months. Did the plan have a goal date? Did it have checkpoints along the way?
To achieve the total goal, weight loss of 40 lbs. There needs to ba a plan and structure. A workout plan written out that covers the first 6-8 weeks. There needs to be a detailed diet that parallels the exercise plan. There needs to be ACCOUNTABILITY! Yes thats right, so daily weigh in’s, photos to update progress. The plan needs to change according the the changes in the body. This approach has a much higher success rate and keeps the person interested in the plan. After the 6-8 week mark, the diet and full workout should change, and allow for modifications.
If you are off track on your 2014 goal, it’s not too late! Yes the first quarter is gone, but there are three quarters left, enough time to get a plan into action and succeed! Don’t step away from a goal, rather take it head on and step into it!
