Rest assured, there were a ton of little, bitty goals that were met between the following before and after photos!
It helps keep workouts going strong when you set little, bitty goals along the way. There’s nothing wrong with setting big goals like losing 50lbs or running a marathon or winning a bodybuilding competition but it’s meeting the small goals that really propels you along day to day. We all like to win so setting yourself up to do so is a smart way to keep yourself motivated.
What do I mean by little, bitty goals? I mean purposely setting the bar so you’ll be able to reach it with just a little thought and effort. Perhaps you’ll ask yourself to drink one extra glass of water each day for a week. Maybe you’ll add one extra set to each of your lifts for a month or go an extra quarter mile on your usual morning jog during football season.
Successfully meeting goals is a habit you can develop. Reaching little, bitty goals regularly creates a mindset of accomplishment. You learn how to keep the commitments you make and that sets you up for success with the larger goals you wish to attain.
Practice makes perfect (or at least it gets you close)!
