Do you have a strategic plan in place to get your body in the best shape ever? As in all business endeavors, you need a strategic plan that will resonate throughout your mind body and spirit for effective implementation.
A vital tool for success, it must be organized and something that you can believe in and adhere to. It should consist of three parts: Where you are today, where you want to be and how you plan to get there.
Determine where you are today in your level of fitness. Whether you are overweight or just taking your fitness to a higher intensity, define your starting point at this juncture. Record your weight and measurements at this level. Write down how you feel both physically and mentally. This will provide inspiration to kick-start your program.
A vital element to your strategic plan, your starting weight and measurements will give you the essential baseline to track your plan’s effectiveness. The degree to which you lose weight or transform your body shape will prove its success or failure.
What level of fitness do you hope to accomplish? Are you looking to lose a few pounds or do you wish to transform your body? Having a targeted goal in mind will make it much easier to work toward your success. I’m sure you have a desired weight or body image in mind. Write this down, even if it sounds like a dream at this point. This process will give your mind something to focus on and it will work hard to find a way to succeed.
Maybe you want to lose 10 pounds, or hoping to flatten your tummy. Whether it’s losing weight, firming up or a little of both, give yourself a goal to strive for.
How do you plan to achieve the fitness level or look that you desire? Making a plan that you can live with will be key to your success. Keep track of everything you do that brings you closer to your goal. Make notes about what worked for you and what didn’t. Be flexible enough to change the way you work toward your goal.
If you find you need to spend more than 30 minutes a day exercising to reach your goal, then be willing to work longer and harder to reach your desired fitness level.
So there you have it, a business-like strategic plan for losing weight and getting in shape. Simply put, you want to record your beginning weight and measurements. Write down your desired weight and measurements; make a plan to reach those goals and work hard to achieve them.
