Summer Goals Using If…Then Statements

Hello to my lovely readers! I have been on a self-improvement kick lately. I recently realized that I’ve been pretty negative and I’ve been letting myself go. I gained forty pounds in the last two years, my panic attacks returned, and I’ve been very down on myself. I decided that it’s time for a change. Nothing is going to get better unless I do something about it. I decided to share with y’all what I am doing about it.

I stumbled across this article by The Cusp about using If…Then statements to set your goals. The basic concept is, if you actually make a plan of what you are going to do, it is easier to follow those goals. Just saying you have a goal isn’t really going to help. You need a plan of action, not just a wish to do something. I thought it was a great idea so I wrote down some if..then statement goals in my notebook to work on this summer.

  1. If I make a shopping list, then I will purchase healthier items at the grocery store.
  2. If I cook healthy meals at home, then I will lose weight and save money.
  3. If I carry my water bottle with me at all times, then I will not be tempted to buy soda and other sugary drinks.
  4. If I take pictures of my food and share them with my new nutrition coach on the Rise App*, then I will be more aware of my food choices.

These are my main goals for the summer! Do you have any goals? What do you think about using if…then statements to set goals? Feel free to share with me below. I would love to hear from y’all!

I will revisit this post in September to update y’all on what has happened.
