The bigger they are, the harder they fail!
setting health and fitness goals is great, but there is soooo much info out there and what you “need” to do to reach your goals - we’re constantly told we need to count calories, cut sugar, no dairy, no red meat, drink more water, do more cardio, weight train 1 hour 7 days a week (all of the above)... the list goes on - you get the idea. .
too large of a goal sets the stage for failure.
the thing is, too much is too much! especially if you’re just starting your journey or getting back into it. my advice from experience... start small! pick one thing you are not doing that you know will help you towards your goal (the lowest hanging fruit). it doesn’t have to be some radical new diet or training regime - just a simple healthy habit you can stick with for a week. maybe drink water all week instead of a daily soda or take a walk after dinner each night or get to bed a 1/2 hour earlier or eat a small salad before dinner, etc. whatever it is, make it a simple one and make it part of your routine. once this one change becomes an easy part of your life, tackle the next one, and on down the list. you’ll start to notice how one behavior feeds the next creating a positive feedback loop, making the results in better health and fitness progressively positive!
step by step.
you know where you want to be in the future-it’s a marathon not a sprint.
