How To Set Goals That Stick!

 – Visualize. Picture yourself reaching your goals – and do this regularly. Vision boards welcome! It will help you to see your goals as eventual accomplishments, rather than just hopeful ideas.

– Journal. When you physically write down your goals, you’re setting an intention. Tracking your progress on a regular basis helps you re-evaluate these goals as time goes on. It will also help keep you honest.

– Get support. Having a support system is so important to staying on track & knowing that you can achieve your goals. Our best advice for those wanting to lose weight & become more fit is to find a workout buddy, or join a community like Tone It Up.

– Be patient.  It doesn’t take a couple weeks to un-do a year of unhealthy habits. Stay consistent and results will come!

– Love yourself! Remember that your body is beautiful and it works hard for you every day. Talk kindly to yourself… your body listens! You deserve the absolute best, so nourish your body with healthy good, work out every day, rest well and be kind. toneitup-girls-8
