Goal Setting Through Exercise, Physical Activity, And Play
By Megan Buoniconti
Assisted By Patrick Buoniconti
I set a goal to exercise at least one hour every day.
I set a goal to play basketball outside instead of video games, especially when the weather is nice.
I set a goal to keep my body at a healthy weight by working out every day, even during my off season between football and track, by playing intramural sports.
I set a goal to follow my motto, “T-N-D-O,” which stands for Take No Days Off. This means I will include some sort of physical activity in my daily routine.
I set a goal to continue to increase the maximum amount of weight I can lift while working out.
I set a goal to keep healthy by taking the stairs instead of using an elevator when possible.
I set a goal to maintain a healthy Body Mass Index (BMI) by eating healthy and working out. One’s BMI is a weight to height ratio that measures your metabolism.
I set a goal to stretch before and after working out to prevent injury of my muscles.
I set a goal to do the stretches that my physical therapist taught me in order to recover properly.
