Goal Setting Tips
Give yourself a realistic time frame to work with. Decide how long you will give yourself to work towards shaving a minute off that 1 mile run time and then work damn hard to get there. Having a ‘deadline’ in mind helps with that all important motivation and it will keep you working hard. You’re going to want to really think about things that will help you in this time period too like possibly cutting down on the booze or tweaking your diet to support you with your new goal.
Finally, use BoxMate! Seriously though, physically inputting your goal and the deadline makes it much harder for you to bend the rules or give yourself the option of backing off when you’ve had a heavy night or a weekend of bad food.
