Practical Goal Setting Can Bring About Positive Changes

Practical Goal Setting Can Bring About Positive Changes

Did you know that statically only 8 to 10 percent of people who made New Year’s resolutions successfully achieve them? Don’t be a statistic. If your New Year’s resolution is to lose weight or get in shape, be fair to yourself and set realistic, attainable goals.

Realistic, attainable resolutions aren’t loaded promises. They are achievable goals. When you make a promise to yourself and put your plan into action, you’ll quickly find that you are on a road toward healthier habits. You will also be less likely to become discouraged and more likely to make new goals.

For example, instead of telling yourself, “I’m going to lose weight and get fit,” resolve to be consistent with exercise, resolve to say no to sugary foods, and resolve to not quit when it gets hard. Then put a timeline to it. I will make a 3-month commitment to myself to wake up early and fit in the exercise I need to reach my goal. I will not quit in this 3-month timeframe and will put in the work consistently to earn my results.

So when making New Year’s resolutions this year, be fair to yourself, even if your resolution is as simple as being consistent with workouts. For 2017, make a resolution – a promise – that you can and will keep. If this year’s resolution is weight loss, be specific in your plan of action and how you plan to achieve your resolution. There are many fads out there, and there are lots of options. Pick something you enjoy and with which you can be consistent.

At Jesse James Fit and Outlaw Bootcamp, we believe in teaching our members the tools they can use for a lifetime in maintaining weight loss. We offer accountability, nutrition knowledge and challenging workouts in a comfortable, fun environment.

Wishing you much success toward your goals in the year to come!
