Day 1 - Goal Setting

Welcome to Day 1 of the New Year Kickstarter Kit. 

The Start of Something New

This Kickstarter Kit will contain everything you need to begin your transformation. Covering everything from setting targets, monitoring your progress, staying motivated, recipes, workouts and more!

Before we start anything you need to be clear of what it is you want from 2018. Think of the specifics. Getting in shape for a holiday isn’t a goal, it’s an idea. Losing 10lbs before your holiday in 8 weeks’ time is a goal. I want you to set yourself 3 SMART targets. 1 target for the next 7 days; 1 target for the next 30 days and 1 target for the next 90 days.

 

SMART = Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic and Time based.

 

Target 1

Target 2

See below for an example. 

Example –

 

“I want to lose 5% body fat in 10 weeks while maintaining my current muscle mass”

 

Specific – 5% body fat

Measureable – Measure body fat using callipers or bioelectrical impedance analysis

Achievable – 0.5% body fat per week is realistic with the correct training and nutrition

Realistic – It’s realistic as I am not starting at 10-12% body fat

Time based – 10 weeks

 

Now you have your targets, you have your WHY. No matter what you do in life, you need to have a reason for doing it, you need to have a why. Otherwise you won’t be able to give it 100%. Above is your why, it is your reasoning for starting this transformation and it will be your reasoning for not giving up. Make sure you have physically written down your 3 smart targets. Print them off and put them on your bedroom wall or kitchen fridge if you need to. This way, if you feel like you’re going off track the targets will stick as a reminder of why you started. This may seem very tedious; however, I promise it will help to keep you on track.
