Today, we’re going to talk about setting goals. You can set numbers-based goals — lose 10lbs or lose 5% body fat, for example — or you can set behavior goals (eat 3 servings of veggies a day; exercise 3 times a week).
The most important thing to remember about goals is this: they’re personal to you. Nobody else should be setting your goals for you. You need to set goals that you’re comfortable with yet will push you outside your comfort zone at the same time.
How far you want to go out of your comfort zone is up to you. If you get discouraged easily, setting the bar slightly lower will help build your confidence.
Here are two articles to help you with goal setting:
When you’re making changes to your eating habits and lifestyle, don’t set too many goals at once. Stick to a few basic goals. Once you get those under control, you can add more.
Set Tracker Goals
You can set your weight loss and body fat percentage goals in the tracker. After logging in, go to Goals -> Weight Goal to set your weight goal; go to Goals -> Body Fat % Goal to set your body fat percentage goal.
Premium Members can also add custom daily and weekly behavior goals, too. Go to Goals -> Custom Goals after logging in to the tracker.

Time for End of Week Review
Congratulations! You’ve made it through 7 days of my Calorie Counting Boot Camp!
At the end of each week, I want you to fill out the End of Week Review. (How do I come up with such catchy names, right?) It’s important to make time to look back over the week. You’ll see how much you’ve learned — and it will help set you up for success for Week 2.
