READY SET GOALS! ( attainable)

When it comes to your fitness and nutrition journey  not all goals are created equally. Setting goals is important because it increases your chances of success and helps you stay motivated, but when you set attainable goals, you create a roadmap for yourself that is achievable and sustainable.

Here are some reasons you should be setting REALISTIC goals along the way:

1 Increases motivation: When you set realistic goals, you are more likely to feel motivated to achieve them. Unrealistic goals can be discouraging and lead to feelings of frustration or failure.

2 Promotes sustainable behavior change: Realistic goals are more likely to lead to sustainable behavior change because they are achievable and can be maintained over time. Unrealistic goals may lead to quick results, but they are often not sustainable and can lead to a hit it and quit it attitude, like yo-yo dieting.

3 Improves adherence: Realistic goals are easier to adhere to because they fit within your lifestyle and are achievable. Unrealistic goals may require extreme measures that are difficult to maintain, leading to a higher likelihood of giving up or reverting to old habits.

4 Reduces risk of negative health outcomes: Extreme weight loss goals can lead to negative health outcomes, like as malnutrition, dehydration, and even muscle loss. Setting realistic goals that focus on healthy, balanced eating habits can reduce the risk of negative health outcomes, and actually make you healthier and happier in the long term.
