Realistically Reasonable

June 12, 2013

One of the biggest barriers to weight loss is unrealistic expectations or goals. We want to lose 25 pounds in one month even though it took two years to pack on those pounds. Setting reasonable goals takes some of the pressure off so instead of looking at the scale as the enemy it becomes just another piece of the fitness and health puzzle. The stress that results from a lofty fitness goal can sometimes be to much to bear making you want to give up rather than keep going.

Here are a few examples of realistic goals to help up on your journey to a healthier you.

Realistic Goals:

Drinking an extra glass or two of water per day

Eating an extra serving of fruits and vegetables per day

Adding an extra day of cardio to your routine

Losing 3-5 pounds per month

Eating fast food once or twice a week

Being healthy is not about being perfect; if it were then none of us would hit the mark. Set goals for yourself that are challenging but you know you can reach. This is a lifelong process so If you fall short don’t worry, dust yourself off and keep trying.
