"Slow and steady wins the race"
An easier way to reach your fitness goals!
In this post, I'm going to give you a tip that is SO easy that it will both blow your mind and make you think "dad joke." First, let's hit up that dad joke...
Q. How do you achieve your goals?
A. Set goals you know you can achieve. 😉
I know that's a bad joke. But everything will make sense in a minute. This month, I put out a free Goal Setting Guide that talks about how important it is to set what are called BASELINE and STRETCH goals.
Baseline goals are things you can do regularly and should be able to do (with a little effort). The problem is that most of us start out with big STRETCH GOALS that take a lot of time or work or a big change in our lifestyle.
That means we give up because we can't keep up when our schedules get busy or something else gets in the way. But that doesn't happen if you set a BASELINE goal.
The best part is that you can always do a little more than your baseline goal if you have the time or energy. Here's a good example of what I mean.
People often set big fitness goals, like working out for 45 minutes five days a week. But working out for 30 minutes, three times a week could be a realistic baseline goal.
You could always work out more on weeks when you have more time. But you don't HAVE to do them to reach your fitness goal and stay on track.
I'll give you a little challenge: try setting 1-2 baseline goals for the rest of this month right now.
This could mean doing something like drinking a tall glass of water every two hours or going for a five-minute walk after eating or whatever makes you feel good.
This will help you keep up with your healthy habits. You won't believe how much they can change over time!
