Many of us share a common goal, "To be healthier and in better shape."
The challenge with this goal is that, while honorable, it lacks the specificity it needs to be achievable.
So, if this is your goal and you want to achieve it, here are two metrics to track to move you towards winning.
1. Track how much money you spend on ___(soda, fast food, alcohol, candy, etc) each day.
What we spend our money on tells us where our priorities are. You goal is to track how much money you spend on one of these items each day. And then decrease that amount over time. Therefore, if you spend less and less money each month on your go-to vice, you can deduce that you are moving in a healthier and fitter direction.
People that achieve the goal of being healthier and in better shape put their money where their mouth is, and prioritize the right things.
2. Plan & execute a weekly family meeting
Say what?.. Yes, your goal can be to plan and execute a weekly family meeting with your spouse/significant other.
Too often our health and fitness goals fall behind because we don't plan ahead and communicate it well. With this goal, you're working on planning and executing 2 objectives:
1) Plan all meals for the upcoming week.
2) Schedule your (and their) workouts for the upcoming week
The metric you track is how many weekly meetings you have each week. The more consistent you are, the better your household can prioritize health and fitness.
People that achieve success in "being healthier and in better shape create time to plan their meals and workouts, and you can too!
Try tracking these metrics for 4-6 months. See what progress you make!
