    When most people talk about fitness goals the usually refer to their 6 month, one-year, 2-year plans.

    There's nothing wrong with that approach.

    However, in order to have a consistent feeling of success running through your body, I always advise having daily goals to accomplish.

    By daily goals I mean something you can do each day to be physically alive; something you can point to an say 'Look at what I accomplished today. Look at what I achieved.'

    It might be an exercise goal. You make your goal of walking for 30 minutes.

    It might be a nutrition goal. You start your day with a complete breakfast (lean protein, healthy carbs and fruit).

    It might be a personal growth goal. You make a goal of journaling for 10 minutes.

    As a former athlete I realized that when I set a specific goal for my workouts, I achieved incredible results.

    If I had a goal to sprint 20 hills. I succeeded. If my goal was to perform one more rep than last workout.
    I succeeded - every time.

    Your mind craves something to focus on; it needs a target to hit.

    And every day you hit at least one of your targets - that's a day in which your confidence soars through the roof.

    At the beginning of each day, ask yourself, 'What do I want to accomplish today?' What is my specific goal for today?'

    Write it down - then get to work.

    Take action and watch how much you accomplish.

    Why. Because you're actively involved in your day.
    And that's the BEST way to live.

    Train Smart,

    i;m gonna jump in and add to this since I am a certified trainer myself though no longer taking clients. change and succeed at ONE THNG AT A TIME. i had clients who needed to change multiple things to reach a goal, and it was always more successful when we picked one, got it down, then progressed to the next. i always made small attainable goals in the first months,then more challenging as they felt more confident in their ability to DO IT. for example. giving up soda and replacing it with water with lemon or lime. 1 week at a time. then we would work on portion control. etc. and so on until their eating habits were now prefernce, not a difficult choice.

    same with exercise. :)
