Before we start on our journey...
We need to know where we're going...
We do this by setting goals we want to achieve. This is all well and good however if we keep these goals to ourselves it's all to easy to let them slip, so we'll be making ourselves accountable to our peers.
Peer pressure can be a great motivator. So before we even start thinking about taking our first step on our journey towards reaching our goals, we must announce our intentions to those around us and what better way than on our social media sites.Sharing Your GoalsIf any of the goals below resonate with you, hover over their image, and three social media icons will appear. Click on any/all of the social media channels you wish to share your goals on.
Many of these fitness goals are very difficult, so you can scale them to your fitness level.
I personally have several of these goals set sequentially so that as I achieve one, I have another to strive for. I hope you give one, or more a try this year:
“I want to lose X pounds this year” - In my opinion, weight loss goals are surprisingly ineffective for sustaining exercise motivation over the long run.
Instead consider performance goals, which may help you stay more motivated to exercise not just this year, but for the rest of your life.
Getting leaner and stronger is a byproduct of achieving these performance goals.
Creating performance goals also helps shift the focus from the outcome to the process. You approach exercise as a skill that you develop over time. Working out for the sake of working out gets boring for everyone.
That’s why I created these extra goals that are based on improving your performance to help you stay more motivated whilst on your journey for weight loss or getting in the best shape ever.
