Are you ready to crush this month and reach your goals?
The beginning of the month is where people tend to set new goals, but if you have been setting the same goal over and over again each month, chances are there some things that need to be tweaked in order to finally reach those goals. For most, it’s simply being held accountable to what you say you are going to do and having a plan of action that you make the commitment to working that plan every-single-day!
Will it be easy? probably not. Will it be fun? I will do my best to make it fun! Will it be worth it? Of course it will!!!
Here are 3 ways to stay on track this month:
- Create a plan of action and share it with someone to hold you accountable. Remember, if you fail to plan, you plan to fail. Period. So think about what you need to do daily and then having someone keep you accountable to doing those daily activities will make sure that you move closer to reaching that goal. Doing daily or weekly check ins to track your progress and brainstorm ways to move past obstacles can help you to keep moving forward.
- Make your goals challenging, but realistic. One thing that I used to do was set goals that were challenging and pretty much unrealistic. Within one week of pushing hard, reality set in and I would give up. Take a look at your current schedule, budget, and mental/emotional capacity, do you really have time to run 10 miles every single day or should you focus on running 1 – 3 miles a day? Do you think that you can eat 100% clean with NO CHEATS or maybe you focus on eating a healthy breakfast and practicing meal prep to help stay on track this month? Make it challenging, but also make it realistic so you are truly motivated, instead of discouraged.
- Don’t be afraid to change things up. This weekend I recorded a video (click here to watch) where I talk about the importance of re-evaluating your plan and making small changes, when necessary. This works if you feel stuck, you know, working out daily, but the scale isn’t moving or eating healthy, but still feeling sluggish. If you are struggling and want help with reaching your health and fitness goals this month, I can help you to make some tweaks to help you get back on track.
