The Road to Change: Starts Here Pt.1/3

You’ve been invited to a party, and you are on your way. As you pull out of your driveway , you realize you forgot to ask where it is or how to get there. In fact,you’re not even sure you have petrol in your car. Without planning ahead—charting your course,understanding the time commitment, and making sure you (and your car)are ready to go—you could miss out on a great time. Improving health and well-being is quite similar. Think of good health as your goal and exercise as the vehicle you use to get there

Many people avoid goal setting because they don’t want to set themselves up for disappointment. But if you rethink this,how about seeting your goals so that you can achieve them? Take things slowly and build on your success,Create a plan that meets the following criteria:  

Specific: Avoid general goals,such as “getting in shape”. Instead ,aspire for more specific goals such as “walking a mile every morning” or joining a gym and going at least twice a week. 
Measurable:Note the way your clothes are fitting or how long it takes you to walk a mile .Repeat the measurements at 1-month intervals---so you’ll see your success  
Attainable: Be realistic. Be honest with yourself. Make what you say you are going to do matter .Create and exercise plan that is simple and doable and build from that.  
Relevant: Does the fitness program you’ve decided on meet  with your goals, and does it suit your lifestyle? Is the program enhancing your quality of life?  
Trackable: Log your workouts on your mobile device,notebook or calender.Frequently look back ti the first week or month of exercise and note your progress. It’s a great motivator.There also are a host of wearable apps that can assist you with tracking.
