Are your fitness goals inspiring? Or overwhelming? If you are too eager to see quick results and don’t have a plan, you could end up exhausting yourself and never enjoy the benefits of your efforts. Whether your goals are to build physical strength or to have more energy, you need to set realistic goals. Here are some tips to get you started.

Choose a Physical Activity You Like

Make sure that you choose an activity you know you’ll enjoy. If you choose an activity you dislike, you’ll be setting yourself up to fail. If you’d rather be walking and getting those 10,000 steps in than attending a yoga class, don’t hesitate to alter your plan.

Record Your Process

Measure your daily progress in a notebook or fitness journal. Or, try the new wearable technology fitness trackers, like the Fitbit Charge Wristband, and sync your progress to your computer or smartphone. Note the times of your physical activities and make sure that you slowly progress over time.

Set a Realistic Time Frame

Give yourself a specific date to start and a specific date to end your challenge. This helps prevent procrastination and burnout scenarios and keeps you motivated.

Being realistic about your fitness goals means being patient and taking the time you need to see real results and prevent burnout. Keep your momentum, don’t stop or cheat and you’ll be successful at the end.
