Mid-January Check on SMART Goals

Just checking in to see how your SMART Goals are going. We’re quickly approaching February. If you made more of a “resolution” and have already given up-no worries just change it into a SMART Goal and keep going!

Remember SMART Goals are:

Even if you have a hiccup with a SMART Goal, accept it and keep going!

Here are two of my personal goals:
I have logged 19 workout sessions this year so far (SMART Goal is to be active at least 6 days a week for improved health).

My hiccup- I ate out three times last week (goal is to eat out no more than 2 time per week), so I’ll continue to work on that one. Perhaps this one is not realistic for me and maybe I focus on the meal composition when I do dine out (which I am doing but perhaps a SMART goal would make me more accountable).

See goals do evolve and change! Keep up the good work and remember doing something for your health is better than doing nothing! Little steps count and turn into BIG achievements.
