When it comes to setting your fitness goals you have to be realistic. There is no point setting goals that you cannot reach because you will quickly lose your enthusiasm and give up. So set goals that you can actually reach if you work hard enough.
The key is to set short term goals and long term goals. Your short term goals will change all the time as you hit them. When you reach the first one, you then set the second one and so on. This carries on all the way up to your long term goals.
By using this format it keeps you motivated as you hit goal after goal. The long term goals come faster too when you follow this method.
If you’re trying to lose weight, you can do this by setting your short term goals in pounds lost and have a large target to aim for as your long term goal. The African mango diet is one where you can lose several pounds in the first few weeks. There are of course other diets you can follow, just be sure to take medical advice before starting any new fitness regime.
