fat to fit - Goals

Goals: identify what you want to achieve and how you are going to get there with goals.

Write it down - make a commitment to yourself
Be realistic - break it down into manageable chunks. 
I follow the 5 P's when setting goals:
    • Positive - phrase the goal in a positive way
    • Precise - be specific on what you want to achieve
    • Prioritise -put what goals you want to achieve in an order
    • Plan - know how you are going to meet those goals
    • Performance-based - make sure that your goal is tangible

My goal is to start exercising again and to begin running towards 5km again. 

What goals have you set yourself lately?

Here are some ideas that I tried last week:
  • Change my meal choices (use different ingredients to make it healthier e.g. stock instead of butter and milk in mash)
  • Cut down on sugar (includes sweeteners and honey)
  • Eat more unprocessed foods (steel cut oats instead of Uncle Tobys Quick Oats or Weight Wise Oats)
  • Drink less alcohol (4 drinks all week)
  • Exercise more - make a date with yourself
  • Plan meals for the week (saves time and money)
  • Cook a soup for lunch
