UG, How do you set yourself goals and go about achieving them?

After Exams, which finish in about a week, I've got a summer of doing bugger all and I want to use this time to get into shape and lose the excess fat (not so bothered about losing weight, just my beer belly, but anyway that doesn't matter), but I'm struggling to find a goal or aim to aim for, as I'm not in any sort of sports team (atm) and I can't think of a good goal to keep me pursuing this line of thought.


From everyday life to lifetime ambitions, how do you personally make goals and aims for yourselves pit??

Example of one of my recents goals.

Goal: Lose weight! YAY
How I went about it: Acquired a treadmill. Started eating healthy.
2 weeks later: **** this. This is boring.
Now: Still fat and eating junk food

There's blood in the water
Sinking, always sinking

I don't make goals.

I have started working out recently, but i'm not aiming for anything other than "to look and feel better".

I don't need to motivate myself to reach my aim either, i just do it. Mainly because i have nothin better to do.

Edit: but i think i have the upper hand on this fitness thing because i used to play rugby fairly seriously until i picked up a shin splint injury.
So i know what shape i can get in, and know how to get there.

That's the thing, I've never been in that greater shape, I mean, I got to a position where I could push body pretty far and keep going, but I was still pretty fat. I think it's more in the food that I eat (i.e shite) And I never know how to structure a decent diet and exercise plan together.

Any advice?

Well the fitness thread on here is a good start, that'll teach you the basics. https://www.ultimate-guitar.com/forum/showthread.php?t=1150811&highlight=fitness

I suggest taking up jogging at least once a week minimum. Find somewhere that has a set distance you can work with. I used to jog around the lake i live near. That way i knew how well i could do a lap of it, then progress to 2 laps maybe 3.

Every night i suggest you do as many pushups as you can with good form (so no arching your back). Even if it's only 1 or 2 it's a start and you'll eventually build up muscle to get to do more. Also crunches are effective :http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vkKCVCZe474 do the first type of crunch shown here for as long as you can, then take a break and repeat.

The first few times will hurt the morning after, but you'll start to get over this as your muscle endurance builds. And you'll not see much muscle development until you've lost weight, but when the fat goes you'll already be fairly toned hopefully.
From there you may be able to build your own regime if you're serious enough.

Good luck and have fun (Y)
