Set a SMART goal

In fitness parlance, a SMART goal is one that is Specific, Measurable, andAttainable, and it’s one that you can Reward yourself for meeting as long as you meet it within a certain Time.

Meeting goals is satisfying, and fitness experts say it helps build momentum. Just pay close attention to the “attainable” part of this equation because an unrealistic goal only sets you up to fail. Instead of challenging yourself to exercise daily for 30 minutes when on some days you can’t even get in 15, look at your schedule, and find two days that you can realistically boost your workout time to 30 minutes. It all adds up to get you toward your goal of 150 for the week.
