Tip! How to Set Your Move Goal

iPhone Life Magazine - - Life + Tech -

My ad­vice for set­ting your per­sonal Move goal is this: com­plete 30 min­utes of ex­er­cise that you can con­sis­tently re­peat daily, then look at your Move num­ber near the end of the day and make that your daily goal. For ex­am­ple, I started out do­ing 30 min­utes of el­lip­tical (15 min­utes in the morn­ing and af­ter­noon) as my base work­out. I burned around 300 ac­tive calo­ries dur­ing the work­out and an­other 200 ac­tive calo­ries with­out ex­er­cis­ing, so I set my Move goal to 500. Start­ing small is okay. I grad­u­ally in­creased my Move goal up to 800 be­fore hit­ting my goal of los­ing 50 pounds and re­duc­ing it back to 500. There's no way I could have started at 800 with­out be­ing dis­cour­aged. The key is find­ing a goal that pushes you to move more with­out mak­ing it too dif­fi­cult to in­cor­po­rate into your rou­tine.
