Can’t hold yourself accountable? This might help..

Sometimes I find myself struggling to maintain excitement in the whole process of weight loss. It’s not that fun, we all know that. But, there are ways to kick it up a notch. If you have a hard time holding yourself accountable, you need to be reminded as to why you’re doing this in the first place.

I found this awesome idea on Pinterest – Create a motivation board. Pin to it pictures that make you feel empowered, motivated or confident. If it’s the first thing you see every morning when you get up, you’ll be reminded of your goals.

There’s also this website, Slimkicker, that lets you log your food, exercise, goals and challenges. You can join motivational groups and invite friends to get in on it too! Oh, and i forgot to mention.. It’s FREE!

Once you sign up the website will calculate how many calories you should be consuming based on your body type and the amount of exercise you do. This gives you a basis as to how much you should be eating depending on how many calories you lose. For example, if I eat around 1,500 calories or less, I should be able to reach 140 in a month or so. But, I try to eat around 1,300 to speed up the process!

Remember, in order to lose weight you have to burn more calories than you consume. Keep that in mind when you’re trying to reach your next goal!

  1. My partner and I stumbled over here different web page and thought
    I might as well check things out. I like what I see so i am just
    following you. Look forward to going over your web page for a second time.

  2. Awesome blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you recommend starting with a free platform like
    Wordpress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m totally overwhelmed .. Any suggestions? Kudos!

    1. Thank you! So glad you like my blog 🙂 I’m still in college and to be honest I still look for tips myself. But from what I’ve found out- If you want to be a journalist it’s good to somehow distinguish yourself from other people – That’s how I started “goals for gals.” Fitness is my niche and it’s something I’m passionate about so why not write about it! I’d recommend WordPress to start a blog. It has great links and resources and I’ve used it for all my journalism classes as well. I paid to have goals for gals become a domain because I’ve had it for over a year and I thought it’d be cool, but you don’t have to do that. I hoped this helped, if you have any more questions don’t hesitate to reach out! Would love to help any way I can!

  3. Hmm it appears like your blog ate my first comment (it was
    extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I submitted and say, I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog.
    I too am an aspiring blog writer but I’m still new to everything. Do you have any recommendations for newbie blog writers? I’d definitely appreciate it.

  4. Have you ever thought about publishing an ebook or
    guest authoring on other sites? I have a blog
    based on the same ideas you discuss and would really like to have you share some stories/information.
    I know my viewers would appreciate your work. If you are even
    remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an e mail.
