Daily Goals: Do You Set them?

5 Comments 1123 views

For that past few days I’ve started declaring daily goals on Facebook…

It’s been helping me start the day with a little focus and direction instead of being disappointed by slow progress.

Losing 30lbs or dropping 2 sizes is definitely NOT going to happen overnight and that gets discouraging, fast.

Setting short term, daily things like…

can help build your confidence while gaining momentum. These things are all in your control and they are possible to accomplish in one day.

Have you set daily goals in the past? Do you now? Thoughts?

P.S. I’ll be posting my daily goal every morning on Facebook. Feel free to post yours as well!

I’d love to hear your story or thoughts on mine.

However, to prevent the massive amounts of spam I was receiving I have turned off comments on any post older than 5 days old. If you'd like to leave me a note regarding this post or anything really try me on twitter (@RoniNoone,) my Facebook page, or even IG (@RoniNoone) I'm so sorry for the inconvenience. I never thought I'd have to do this but it's gotten way out of hand and comment management has become simply too time consuming to manage.

    Lately my goal has just been “Meet (don’t exceed) Daily Points Target” and I’ve been pretty successful so far. I am pretty good with other things (exercise, water, etc.) but going over points is (OF COURSE!) the huge issue for me.

    I set daily goals when I feel myself slipping or I am trying to get my mojo back after a slip. It definitely helps build up confidence.

    “Don’t eat dessert.” If I can do it for one day, I can do it for one week… (dessert is always the extra fatty/sugary food I consume after I’m already full). I’m going on three weeks of only eating one dessert per weekend (none on weekdays). It’s a lot easier to think of as a one-day-at-a-time thing.

    I have been following your lead on this and have found it to be very helpful! Setting daily goals of things I can do and that are within my control reminds me to do the things that I can and that are important even if they seem little and insignificant, they will add up!
    Thanks for starting me on this habit….

    I set monthly goals. Things to accomplish in the new month so I do not get overwhelmed.
