Setting and Tracking Goals in Healthie

How to Use Small Goals Get Big Results

When you participate in coaching programs and challenges with Food Freedom Naturally, you can use goal-setting to stay motivated and spur real change!

The science of behavioral change shows that setting small, specific goals with regular accountability check-ins is an effective way to make big changes.

You and your coach can set and track custom goals quickly and easily in the Healthie app. Create goals around any action, on any schedule. For example:

  • Daily: Drink 8 glasses of water daily.
  • Weekly: Do shopping and meal prep on Sundays.
  • One-Time: Stop in the new gym to ask about membership on Saturday.

Once you’ve been tracking your goals for awhile, you’ll be able to analyze your progress. Try to beat your goal completion percentage and build streaks without missing a day. Watching your goal progress can provide a fun, competitive edge to your personal wellness challenge as you work to being your best self!

Viewing and Marking Goals as Complete

In the app or in the web browser app, you can see your goals and mark your progress.

Here are instructions for the mobile app:

  • Click on “Goals” on the Home Screen Menu Bar, at the bottom of the Journal home screen.
  • Scroll down to see all current goals. The goals are grouped and color-coded by frequency: daily, weekly, etc.
  • Click on the checkmark to mark any goal as complete.
  • For subgoals, click on the dropdown arrow. Click on the checkmark for each subgoal to mark as complete.
  • Get in-app reminders to check-off your goals. To change goal notification settings, contact your coach.

Adding New Goals

Goals can be added to your profile by you or your coach. Coaching clients can create custom goals. Other goals may be assigned to you as part of a challenge or through working with your coach.

Here are the directions for creating goals in the mobile app:

Click on “Goals” on the Home Screen Menu Bar, at the bottom of the Journal home screen.

Click “+” to add a new goal.

Enter goal description:

  • Title: “Drink 8 glasses of water.”
  • Description: “Complete one glass of water every hour from 8 am to 4 pm.”
  • Frequency: Daily, Weekly, One Time
  • Start Date: Choose date.
  • Has an End Date? Yes/No (Default is “No”, for ongoing goals.)
  • Set end date. (Only if “Yes” for End Date.)
  • Subgoals: Click Add “+” and add individual subgoals. Enter description and checkmark, for each subgoal.
  • Save as Favorite: Change to “Yes” to save goal to use again later.

Setting Subgoals

After deciding if your goal will be ongoing or have an end date, you can add subgoals. Subgoals allow you to break down the larger goal into smaller parts for two uses.

Use subgoals to break down a daily goal into steps throughout the day. This is great for tracking water, logging meals or for food choices. For example:

Goal: Eat three fruit/veggie servings daily.

  • Subgoal 1: Eat fruit at breakfast.
  • Subgoal 2: Eat salad at lunch.
  • Subgoal 3: Eat cooked vegetables at dinner.

Use subgoals to break down a weekly goal into smaller tasks. This can work well for weekly exercise goals, or weekly shopping, planning and meal prep tasks.

Goal: Complete meal planning and meal prep weekly

  • Subgoal 1: Choose recipes and meals.
  • Subgoal 2: Go shopping or order groceries online.
  • Subgoal 3: Do meal prep.

Modifying or Deleting Goals

You can modify or delete goals on the mobile app or web browser app.
