All too often we have a tendency to determine our progress in relation to whether or not we achieve our goals. This is helpful as long as our goals are realistic. When it comes to health and fitness, many of us have a tendency to set goals that are neither realistic or helpful.
One of the most important things that we can do to truly make progress is to change some of the little things that we do that lead us towards an unhealthy lifestyle. For example, not going back for the second helping of that particular dessert that we crave is probably more realistic than trying to avoid it completely.
When it comes to exercise, I have found it helpful to focus on adding small amounts of time and distance to my runs, rather than trying to go out and run a 12 miler. Over the past 9 years I have been fortunate to see myself accomplishing things that I never dreamed possible when I re-engaged running.
What small goals can you set for yourself that are attainable and helpful. After setting and achieving several small goals, you should begin to notice yourself making some significant progress.
Hope this not finds each of you having an amazing day.
