When it comes to health and fitness what motivates you?
For some it’s fitting into a certain pair of jeans, for others it’s all about accomplishing a fitness goal, and yet for others it comes down to life or death.
Motivation is often grounded in a specific goal. If you don’t take the time to sit down to decide where you want to end up you are going to take a lot of side-roads that are unnecessary in reaching your destination.
Would you leave home on a long road trip without planning your path, filling your gas tank or packing a bag? Probably not. So why would you enter into a fitness routine without a plan in mind?
When it comes to health and fitness you need to do the same things:
- Plan your path: Ultimately what do you want to achieve and what steps are you willing to take to get there?
- Fill your tank: What diet modifications are necessary for you to achieve your goals and are you willing to make them?
- Pack your bag: What equipment, classes or memberships are necessary for you to reach your goals?
Today my challenge to you is to think about what motivates you and how you can begin to create goals that are supported by that motivation.
Check back tomorrow for some concrete ideas on creating goals.
