Ever set out to 'get in shape' or 'get fit', but never got there? You'll probably see better results if you work on your goal(s) before you work out.
There is an acronym in the fitness community that is used for goal setting. A good fitness professional will tell you to set S.M.A.R.T. goals. Specific, Measureable, Attainable, Relevant, and Time-bound. Go one step beyond and set S.M.A.R.T.-R. goals.
The ‘R’ stands for reward. Reward yourself after each goal achieved.
Here is goal #2, Measureable Goals:
Measurebale. Your goals must be measureable for two reasons.
1. So there will be no doubt in your mind that you have achieved your goal.
2. So you can measure your progress after attaining your goal!
‘I will lower my body fat percentage from 20% to 15%.’ is a measurable resolution.
