Be a Better YOU – Not a Celebrity Look Alike
“Walk off Body Fat in 5 Days!”
“Get Flat Abs in 2 Weeks!”
“Bikini Ready in 7 Days!”
“The 8-Hour Diet!”
How many of you quickly pick up a magazine with those headlines while you’re waiting in line at the grocery store? – Don’t worry, it gets me EVERYtime too.
DON’T BELIEVE EVERYTHING YOU READ!
I find it very sad that we compare our bodies and how we want to look to the celebrities out there today. Kim Kardashian just gave birth to a baby girl, and all of the sudden she’s on the cover of every magazine looking like she was never even pregnant. I’m not saying it’s a bad thing, but how about the average mother who has recently given birth and doesn’t have the money and time for a trainer seven days a week for however many hours and can’t afford a day time nanny on top of all that? It’s just not as easy for us as it is for them!
I’m sure a lot of women love reading all these articles about how these celebrities get that “butt” they have always wanted, or “abs within 5 days,” but we need to set some realistic goals.
One of the many things I remember learning in my management class is how “SMART” goals should be set. This is a great way to set any type of goal, not just management goals.
S- Specific (know what it is exactly that you wish to accomplish)
M- Measurable (keeping track of progress gives incentive to keep going)
A- Attainable (challenging goals within ability to achieve outcomes)
R- Relevant (identify goals that are most important to you)
T- Time Bound (give yourself a reasonable time)
So ask yourself when you are reading these headlines, are they actually SMART goals?
If we try to become what we are reading in the magazines, we become discouraged when we aren’t getting the results we had expected, especially within such a short amount of time!
Now I’m not saying that magazines have no useful information or that all of the articles are lies. Some of the articles provide great nutritional tips and show us exercises that you will see 9Round members doing in their workout routines, but you should strive to be a better you, not a Shakira look alike.
