Define Fitness for Yourself!

If you are looking to get fit, then it is time to define fitness for yourself.

Ask yourself – what does fitness look like to you?  How do you define living a fit and healthy life?  Does it mean fitting into the size four you were in high school?  Does it mean being able to run and play with your kids without wheezing?  Your definition of fitness will translate to your fitness goals.  If you want to reach your fitness goals, you must first be clear on what fitness means to you.  Then you can determine the goals you want to accomplish. Successful people know what they want.  They have a clear vision, define their goals precisely (there is no room for floundering) and actively work to attain those goals each day.

Write down five reasons you want to be fit. Visit those reasons whenever you don’t “feel” like exercising or get a bad case of the “munchies”.  When you remind yourself of your reasons to get fit, you are less likely to get sidetracked.
