Realistic Fitness Goals for 2024

1. KEEP IT SIMPLE! Don’t begin your health journey, with unrealistic or unattainable goals. Start with 1 goal at a time, CRUSH IT, and add another goal. For example:

- Start with a Water goal. Try for the 8 x 8 rule. 8 glasses, 8 ounces each every day. Once you achieve that, work on the second goal. It may be to begin a walking program. Start with 1 trip around the block, then 2 blocks, then 3 blocks, turn the blocks into miles, and watch yourself begin to change. Do 1 Push Up, then work on doing 10 a day. You get the idea!

2. CONSISTENCY IS KEY!  Shoot for 80% consistency in your Nutrition and Fitness goals. Don’t set yourself up for failure by choosing an All of Nothing plan. If you stick with your goals at least 80% of the time, you will eventually start to see progress. Don’t quit or become frustrated if you fall off the wagon, even the fittest people have a treat now and then. Jump back on the next day and continue on.

3. CUT YOURSELF SOME SLACK! Enjoy your recovery time. Injury and setbacks happen when we go from 0 to 100. Work hard then add some Yoga, or get more rest. No human body can go 100% all the time. Remember, that the body gets stronger during recovery time. Don’t beat yourself up if you are tired, listen to your body, it will tell you what it needs.

4. REALIZE AND ACCEPT THE UPS AND DOWNS! There will be times the scale will make you happy and times it will make you anxious. One of my favorite quotes: “WHEN BABIES TAKE THEIR FIRST STEP AND THEN FALL ON THE BOTTOMS, WE PRAISE THE FIRST STEP, WE DON’T CRITICIZE THE FALL...” Don’t criticize yourself, talk to yourself as you would a loved one, and STAY POSITIVE. Above all, Don’t give up on yourself, and keep moving forward.
