Wednesday, January 1, 2014

With the #TNTgetfit2014 challenge we encourage you to pick one goal to focus on for the month of January. The purpose of picking just one goal is so that you can start the year off with a clear, focused and achievable goal that you can then build upon as the year progresses. Then throughout the month of January we will post tips and motivational encouragement in social media to help you along the way. And don't be surprised if we throw a few little mini-challenges into the mix. So be sure to look for #TNTgetfit2014 on Facebook , Twitter and Pinterest and tell us your goal for the month.
It's easy to join in on the challenge. Simply:
1. Post to Facebook and Twitter using #TNTgetfit2014 and tell us your goal for the month. Keep us posted on your progress and we'll be there to help keep you motivated along the way.
2. Comment on our #TNTgetfit2014 Pinterest board or create your own #TNTgetfit2014 vision board on Pinterest to help keep you motivated and on track to reaching your goal.
So who's ready to #TNTgetfit2014? If you need help creating your achievable goal her are some tips to help you get started:
Be Specific - Setting goals such as "working out more" or "eating better" are to general and don't have enough substance to keep you focused. It is important that you define some very specific, detailed and measurable steps that will help you track your progress toward reaching these goals for the New Year.
Make It Challenging - Your goal should be realistic and within your current abilities AND should also push you beyond where you currently are.
Make Sure Your Goal is Attainable - This is a carry-over from the Challenging tip we mentioned above. Make sure what ever that challenging goal is - that is is achievable. Don't set yourself up for failure by setting goals that are truly out of your current abilities. You can always adjust your goals and set new ones as you make progress and successfully reach each step.
Set Deadlines - Goals need to have time-limits otherwise they will lose priority and fade away from your daily routine. If you have set a long term goal that will take awhile to reach make sure you create short-term or intermediate-goals. Setting these smaller goals will help that long-term goal seem less daunting and keep you focused and on track along the way.
Keep It Positive - Keep it up beat. Instead of NOT doing things approach your goals from the stand-point of what you DO want to do.
Be Flexible - Keep in mind that setting goals are not set in stone. Sometimes unforeseen circumstances come up in life and cause things to have to change. The key is to be flexible...change...don't stop.
