REALISTIC FITNESS GOALS LEAD TO SUCCESS

Do you expect too much when you try to start or increase your physical
activity? Success often leads to more success, but very high goals
often lead to frustration. Start slow and set realistic goals for
yourself. For example, unless you are already very active, don't set
your new goal as 60 minutes of vigorous exercise every day. Instead
consider starting with activities such as brisk walking for 10-15
minutes several days a week. By conquering smaller goals first, you
are more likely to continue and ultimately reach your larger goals.
