It’s that time of year again, making big promises to ourselves that we will never keep. This year will be different though! Instead of the broad resolutions of I’m going to drop 50 pounds, eat healthy and get more sleep make SMART resolutions.
SMART resolutions break down those big goals down to easy to attain and measure goals. For instance lets take I’m going to lose weight and break it into a SMART goal
S: Lose weight is to vague, to be specific you need to define exactly such as I am going to lose 20 pounds by the end of 2017.-This is also where you will put your plan: Workout 4 days a week and meal plan each week.
M: I am going to measure it by losing 2 pounds a month, working out 30 min MWFS, and having a meal planing time each Sunday.
A: Totally doable by sticking to a workout and healthy eating plan.
R: Is this a good goal for you? Maybe it needs to be inches related?
T: Not only do you have short-term, monthly, but also a long-term goal, for the year.
Using SMART goals will help you to stick to whatever your resolution is this year.
