When I speak to most women… And they tell me about their fitness goals… Or their weight loss goals usually I hear something like this”Well I’ve gained

about 25 pounds these last two years during Covid… I would like to lose some weight and get toned.”……”I really

just want to feel better!”

 

I get it… Lose some weight .. get stronger …have more energy… These are great goals…
But in order to

achieve these goals we need to have some more clarity! So my first step is to acknowledge my client for wanting to get her self back into shape.I always say acknowledging yourself… Is the first step… Recognizing you’re not happy where

you are and you want to make a change amazing⭐️ What I like to do is use the smart method…

The SMART method puts fi

ve elements into action in order to set up your goals
1. Specific
“A WISHY WASHY goal would be, say, ‘get healthy’. A SPECIFIC goal would be to lose weight.” You’ll narrow down that goal even further by using the rest of the method, but whether you want to get stronger, faster, or smaller, having a baseline points you in the right direction.
So for example let’s use w

eight loss

2. Measurable
Here’s where

you determine exactly how you’ll measure your goal. “If you’re going to follow the wishy washy goal, it would be get really hea

lthy,”
That’s not really measurable… Be healthy how? like a bodybuilder a runner…
That’s not quantifiable. A measurable goal would be, say, ‘lose 10 pounds’.
Because You can track your progress.
It’s definitely not blu

 

rry…
You either lost the 10 pounds or you didn’t…
You either ran the 5 miles or you didn’t… You either achieved five pull-ups or you didn’t…
See the diff?
3. AttainableThis is a big one… Losing 50 pounds in two months… May not be attainable… But losing 2 pounds a week for eight weeks… Is 👊
“You want to start sma

ll and see early wins… People don’t believe me .. but this is the key so you don’t give up…
too often we have thi

s huge goal set up at the beginning of the year… And then we start strong for the first week and then lose steam and then give up…
You need to see progress and you need to see those small wins 💥

4. Relevant
This is what’s g

oing to keep you from losing steam is understanding your WHY
Ask yourself….

self… 😜is this goal worthwhile, and am I motivated to do it?
Creating a goal

with some type of motivation attached to it, like I want to lose 10 pounds in two months to be ready for my wedding, can give you the mojo to keep going when you want to quit…

5. Timely
“You want to be strict about a deadline—doing so creates urgency,”
I see this a lot of time
for example say my clients wants to do 10 push-ups
She goes strong

but she’s not seeing progress quick enough
She starts losing ste

am…
Then she stops focusing on her goal…
Then she sat f*** it !
I’ll change my goal❌
The key issue here for my client was she did not have an end date…
I will achieve 10 push-ups in two months… This way she has a calendar
she can look at every day if she’s completing her push-ups…
She’s checks the box…
And she goes through it f

or the full eight weeks…
And even if she does not complete 10 she has completed the goal of trying… Versus quitting!!
Don not fail ahead of time by not trying till the end date !!!!!

You should also be honest with yourself about what you’re able to accomplish in a given time frame. “If losing 10 pounds is at the top of your list and you’re willing to make sacrifices in your social life and at work, u can get that more quickly,”

It just Has to

be something you’re willing to commit to…
I have seen clients lose

10 pounds in a month
I have also seen my clients to lose 10 pounds in three months…
Both are amazing goals just different!

As we go into 2022 I wanted to share these tips with you…
Take out a journal… this is KEY!!!!!

Write out a goal…
And consistently work on that goal… Until you achieve it…
Don’t change the goal…
Figure out what’s not working…
Fix it and go back to the goal until it’s complete✅
Happy new year my friends 🥳🥳🥳🥳
