#1- Cut Your Goal In Half

You heard me! Whatever your goal is, just cut it right in half now. Is your goal to work out four days a week? Start with two. Or maybe to eat seven servings of fruit and veggies everyday? Start with getting in three to four servings first. Want to lose ten pounds? Start by losing five.

Many of my private weight loss clients are incredibly successful women, so this is a tactic I love to use for building confidence in high achievers. If you prove to yourself you can reach half your goal you’ll gain such a confidence boost and be extra devoted to accomplishing the next half!

#2- Track Your Every Move

Set yourself up for success. Use planners, calendars, color-coding, etc. Anything that you know will work for you. Come up with an exact protocol for what needs to happen in order to reach your goal, and when it needs to happen and even the how it needs to happen. Then keep track and check off the steps as you complete them.

Ex: One of your steps for healthier eating could be as simple as investing in quality meal containers so that meal prep is easier for you to sort out!

Ex: If you need to get more sleep, set a bedtime and stick to it! Set an alarm to have a cup of tea beforehand, so you’ll be relaxed and ready to snooze.

#3- Be More Flexible

Even though you have a perfect plan to follow, be flexible towards anything that happens that stops you from following your instructions to a T. Shake off the rigidity, abandon your all-or-nothing mentality. This is your journey and things may come up.

For instance your work schedule gets changed and you can’t get to the gym in the morning anymore. Instead of feeling like all is lost, try working out at home. Meeting ran long and you missed your spin class? Hit up that relaxing evening yoga class instead (and then you might literally be more flexible!).

For home workouts and yoga check out my Step It Up with Steph DVD.

#4- Celebrate Small Victories

Remember that you’re on your own side and then act like it! Did you work out today? Do a little dance! Ate an extra serving of leafy greens, high five! Celebrate every little success and you’ll find living a healthy lifestyle so much easier because of all the positive reinforcement. Every time you are able to perform more cardio or lift more weight you should be excited, so go ahead and congratulate yourself!

Happy Goal-getting!
Steph
