Home / exercise blog / 5 steps to setting goals

We all have goals, but what can you do to ensure you achieve it? Follow these easy tips to help you achieve that goal, once and for all.

1. Be specific and clear about what you want to achieve and why you want to achieve it!

Example:

What: I want to lose 15kgs.

Why: I want to be fit, healthy and increase my self esteem

 

2. Write down the steps that you will need to take

Example:

– Start exercising 3 x week for 30 minutes
– Start a healthy eating plan
– Find the correct supplements to boost your plan (for example: Herbex)

3. Set a realistic timeframe for each goal

It takes at least 12 weeks to see major changes in the body. If you change your habits, follow a healthy eating plan and do some exercise, it is very realistic to lose 2kg every two weeks.

 

4. Break your goals down into smaller goals

Example:

– I want to lose 4kg in 4 weeks

– I want to lose 4cm from my stomach in 6 weeks

 

5. Set rewards for goals that you have accomplished

Example:

– If I exercise for 30min 3x week for 1 month, I can purchase a new pair of shoes

– If I stick to my healthy eating plan for 6 days during the week, I can reward myself with a cheat meal on the 7th day.

 

You are on your way to a healthier, happier you. Keep your notes close-by and remind yourself of your goals as often as you need to. Don’t get disheartened if you encounter obstacles along the way – it is all part of the process. Simply get up, and start again. GOOD LUCK!
