We’ve all been there. It’s a new year, and we choose individual resolutions. Then we abandon them by February. Why does this occur?

1. Write Down Fitness Goals, Not Resolutions

Resolutions are a strict plan to do or not do a behavior. On account of this, they’re rigid and may be daunting.

Goals are the intention of your effort, an aspiration or a favorable outcome. They sound less formidable—and more doable.

Suppose that you go into the new year with the mind-set of choosing attainable goals, as opposed to setting intimidating resolutions? Reframing how you think about things and being nicer to yourself is the first move toward improvement.

2. Make SMART Fitness Goals

Your goals this year could include:

  • Professional—obtaining a bigger salary at work.
  • Health—having a strength training routine.
  • Personal—reading additional books.

Now that you’ve established your goals, how do you stay determined to accomplishing them?

SMART goals energize you to achieve objectives and celebrate success along the way.

How Do You Create a SMART Goal?

SMART means specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-based. They are distinct but not overwhelming.

Individual SMART goals could include:

  1. Read for 20 minutes before you go to sleep every night this week.
  2. Consume vegetables at each meal this week.
  3. Take a walk after dinner every day this week.

Setting SMART goals will prevent you from becoming overpowered by what you want to reach.

3. Share Your Fitness Goals with a Friend

Remember to share your goals with someone! Using an accountability partner can assist you in staying motivated during the process.
