Making small fitness goals is one of the best ways to make your dreams a reality! Here are small achievable goals to help make your health goals a lot less scary.
Small Fitness Goals
Drink 4 glasses of water before lunch: 8 glasses is a lot of to think of, so instead make a goal to drink 4 glasses before lunch. You can have one when you wake up, one right away at the office, one at 10 and then one right before you eat. Not that bad right?
Work out 2 days a week: Don’t try and make yourself go to the gym every day. 2 days a week for at least 30 minutes. If you do that for a month, bump it up to 3.
Take the stairs: You hear that a lot, but seriously take the stairs every once and awhile. On the metro, on campus or at your office go up the stairs once a day. It’s not that hard, and you’ll thank yourself once you have glutes of steel.
Swap out one carb for a veggie or fruit everyday: Instead of eating pasta, make spaghetti squash. Instead of eating toast, have some eggs and spinach. You can still eat carbs, but make sure they are healthier.
Make you lunch at night: Your less likely to make a crappy lunch and want to buy a new one if you make a delicious one at home the night before! Also more time to read blogs (like this one) and drink some coffee in the morning!
If you have a Fitbit, try to get at least 2,000 steps in before noon: Not counting your workout, try to get a certain amount of steps in before noon by getting up to get more water or just to stretch your legs!
Tips to Remember:
Make a healthy dinner the night before and save the leftovers! (Check out my Pinterest board for ideas!)
Leave the junk food out of the house, or at least out of sight!
Weight loss and muscle building start with your food. Fuel your body right!
It has to be about balance. Somedays you eat tacos and have margaritas, other days you drink smoothies and run 2 miles.
