Setting Goals - Getting Healthy


Updated October 27, 2010

1. Make an appointment with your doctor to get the okay to start exercising.

2. Start Exercising.

3. Remember to:

  • Give yourself plenty of recovery days so you don't burn out.
  • Stretch every single day. Don't argue...just do it.
  • Be active. Don't sit at your computer all day long in a word processing coma. Stand up and walk around every 30 minutes.
  • Hire a personal trainer if you don't have a clue what you're doing or if you have a chronic injury/condition.
  • Drink water all day long. Don't argue...just do it.
  • Eat some fruit and vegetables. Eat them often. Savor them. Don't argue...just do it.
  • Reward yourself for a job well done with new clothes, a massage or a night out on the town.
  • Be proud of yourself for being so darned healthy.
