Attainable Goals-Set them today!

Have you set your weight loss, health and nutrition goals? Did you write them down? Put together a dream/goal board?

If you have, then you have successfully accomplished the first step. When making your goals did you set realistic, attainable goals?

So often we are so eager and excited in the beginning of our journey to better health, that we aim a little too high for our short term goals.

'I am going to lose 20 pounds in 3 weeks' NOT a realistic or healthy goal. 'I am going to eat no more than 800 calories a day' NOT a realistic or healthy goal. 'I am going to run a 5K race in 3 months' IS attainable and very realistic. 'I am going to eat clean food 95% of the time' VERY attainable, healthy and a good goal.

Realize that you are human, you will make mistakes and that you should set attainable, healthy goals. Don't beat yourself up when you don't reach your goal for the day/week/month. Instead, find what went wrong, and try again.

Negative self talk, unattainable goals, and a weak support system can be very destructive.

If you haven't set your goals yet, DO IT TODAY!

You can't start working towards something if you don't know what it is you are working towards.

Happy Tuesday!
