Set Goals You Can Achieve!

This Sparked Me!

My workout goal for the last month was 60 minutes each day. What seemed like a good idea was a really big mistake. I ended up dreading it, never found the time, made excuses not to, and never did it. So I'm changing my workout to a much more friendly 20 minutes.

Working out for 20 minutes a day is a better goal for me because I am not intimidated by it, can find the time every day, have no excuses, and its something i don't mind emoticon

    Good for you! Setting a goal too high can lead to disappointment. Now that you've pared it down I bet you'll be doing just fine. Maybe in the not too distant future you'll be doing the 60 minutes. Peace.

    I absolutely agree with you! I started by only incorporating changes I was fairly sure I could achieve. As I met those goals, I gained confidence in setting new ones. Before I knew it, I'm running, kayaking, hiking and feeling great! Start with your 20 min workouts & then re-evaluate each month. You'll be surprised at how quickly you get fit!

    I think we all do this at one point or another. Great reminder tip.
