If you've recently embarked on making dietary changes for your health, you may realize that it can be difficult at times, Summertime fun, including vacations, barbecues and plenty of cool treats, can often lead to barriers that get us off track.
Whether you’re aiming for a healthy weight or working to reach a fitness milestone, having a goal and tracking your progress are the keys to long-term success. Establishing a goal will create lasting motivation, and tracking progress along the way will help you maintain momentum.
Focus on two or three goals at a time. Great goals are “S.M.A.R.T.”, meaning they are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant and time limited.
It’s important to review your goals regularly to ensure that they are challenging but attainable. Remember small changes can have big impacts on your health!
