When it comes to goal setting there is nothing more important than setting your goals realistically.
If you start with a goal too big e.g. -> Loose 5 kg in 10 days (not realistic)
…you are much more likely too fail and to give up.
Giving up should never be an option, so instead of setting a goal that is almost impossible to pass you should set a REALISTIC goal and start SIMPLE e.g. -> I am going to go to the gym 2-3 times a week this month.
This is a realistic goal, it is also a goal that you can list up photographically and cross out in your calendar the times you’ve trained for example.
A long with this goal you can list a long-term-goal, a long term goal can span from months over to few years.
If we take a simple example that can fit with the goal here above (going to the gym 2-3 times a week this month) and say my long-term goal is loosing 7kg in the next 6 months.
Now we have a short-term goal and a long-term goal along with it, now remember when talking about loosing kg, going to the gym is not enough alone – eating habits, sleeping habits and extra physical activity will get you there.
