What is on your wish list for this Christmas? This holiday season rather than just wishing for the latest and greatest electronic device, add a few fitness goals! Taking the time right now to create goals, or wishes, will help you stay on track during the holiday season.
A goal is a wish that you are dedicated to; therefore, you plan and work for it. Follow these goal setting tips to help make your wish come true:
1. Think of a fitness wish and write it down. Be specific. Rather than just saying “I wish that I won’t gain any weight this holiday season”, add details to your goal. A goal should be specific and well-written so that you know exactly what you are aiming for.
2. Be honest and realistic. Are you really willing to not eat anysweets this holiday season? If not, don’t make that your goal! Give yourself an exact number of sweets or a specific type of desserts you may eat.
3. Tell your friends and family your goals and ask them to help you. Achieving goals takes more than your will power! By telling your friends and family your goals, you now have a support system to help you when you feel like giving up.
4. It is very motivating to see what you have accomplished. Find a way to track your progress. This way not only will you see what you have left to do, but also what you have already done.
