1. Get your steps up now! Have you been sitting for a while at work? Now is the perfect time to get up and do a couple of laps around the office. Getting up to walk while at work every hour or so can help you meet those steps goals. 

2. Keep your goals realistic! If you think you can lose 30lbs in a month, you likely will be very disappointed when you don't reach your goal. If you make smaller, incremental goals you work is much more likely to pay off in the long run.
