“If you want to be happy, set a goal that commands your thoughts, liberates your energy and inspires your hopes.” -Andrew Carnegie
In order to achieve great results in life, one must set goals for themselves. The same goes for your health and fitness. When you have made the decision to make healthy living a part of your lifestyle, setting goals will encourage you to achieve them.
When my youngest son turned 1 last year, I wrote down a goal for myself.
I want to increase my fitness level and loose the baby weight by exercising at least 3 times a week and making healthier food choices.
Within a month, I had shed 15 pounds. It was not easy getting back into shape. Slowly but steadily, I was able to run a little longer, and I could feel my muscles resurfacing! From when I set that goal, I not only lost 40 pounds, but was able to run a 5K while pushing my two boys in the stroller in 30 minutes!
So to everyone who has a hard time starting, set a goal, and follow through with it. I promise you, you will be amazed at what you can accomplish.
