Is there value in making "insurmountable" goals?
For example, I would like to lose 100 pounds and maintain that weight loss.
Absolutely not! And I don't think anyone would recommend that unless they just like to see people sit in their misery.
However, losing 100 pounds is not something I can do overnight. Not to mention, I'm pregnant, so now is obviously not the time to "diet" and try to lose massive amounts of weight. So what can I do to move closer to this goal?
I have to break that gigantic, scary, "insurmountable" goal into smaller deliverables. These smaller goals can even be SMART goals.
I can start exercising once a week, then build up to twice a week, three times, etc. I can start with 10 or 15 minutes and build that up to half an hour or more.
