I want to get leaner, I want to get stronger, I want to run faster, I want to get healthier, are these the main goals we started working out for? Did we accomplish these goals? Do you remember when we started to give up fitness?
Many people set their own goals when they start working out, which is a good place to start because reasonable goals can
Make our workout more efficient and can make us stick to it. However, setting unreasonable goals can also make us fail faster, and also waste our time and energy. So, how should we set reasonable fitness goals?
One of the main reasons why we set goals that fail is because they are too big. For example, our plan is to lose 50 pounds a year, but this goal is too big for us, and every time we think about it, it brings a lot of pressure, which will be easier for us to give up. If, for example, we set our goal to lose 5 pounds a month, it is a goal that we are relatively confident of accomplishing and is much easier to achieve. Therefore, it is necessary for us to break down the big goal into smaller goals.
2.Make goals specific and measurable
With specific goals, we are more likely to succeed. Because faced with specific goals, we can specify a more effective plan. For example, if we plan to run a 5k in 30 minutes, we can develop targeted training to accomplish this goal.
3.Make goals realistic and achievable
There is nothing wrong with having ambitious goals, but unrealistic goals often make it difficult for us to move forward by inches. If we set goals that simply cannot be accomplished in a short period of time, this will only increase our negativity and often make the whole operation more likely to fail, because we need to use each completed goal to motivate ourselves and increase our confidence so that we can keep moving forward and thus accomplish larger goals.
4.Give the goal a definite time
Goals need to have deadlines, and if there aren't any time limits, we tend to keep procrastinating because it's human nature. For example, if our goal is to lose 10 pounds, but there is no time limit, when will we succeed? The likelihood is high: we'll spend the rest of our lives working towards those 10 pounds, which is obviously not the result we want.
5.Goals must make sense
If the goal set has no meaning for us, then the goal will never be achieved. Because every effort and effort we make needs to be emotionally supported, so when setting goals, we need to think solemnly from ourselves before we set them.
Setting goals effectively is only the first step in making lasting, positive change, but setting reasonable goals is also more complicated than we think. In order to set reasonable goals, we need to avoid setting negative goals, while also adjusting our goals in real time as needed.
