Women high fiving at Farrell's 

We’ve all experienced it. It’s a new start, and we create personal resolutions. Then we abandon them in a month. Why does this take place?

1. Write Down Fitness Goals, Not Resolutions

Resolutions are a strict intention to do or not do an action. Because of this, they’re absolute and can be discouraging.

Goals are the intention of your ambition, a plan or a wanted result. They sound less scary—and more doable.

What if you approach 2020 with the attitude of choosing achievable goals, as an alternative to setting formidable resolutions? Reexamining your thought process and being more forgiving to yourself is the first move toward growth.

2. Choose SMART Fitness Goals

Your goals for the year may incorporate:

  • Professional—receiving a promotion at work.
  • Health—starting a strength training routine.
  • Personal—reading additional books.

Now that you’ve set your goals, how do you stay committed to accomplishing them?

SMART goals encourage you to achieve milestones and celebrate success during the process.

How Do You Come Up With a SMART Goal?

SMART stands for specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-based. They are clear but not intimidating.

Your SMART goals could involve:

  1. Read for 20 minutes before sleeping each night this week.
  2. Have greens at each meal this week.
  3. Go for walks after supper every day this week.

Making SMART goals will prevent you from being overwhelmed by what you want to do.

3. Share Your Fitness Goals with a Friend

Be certain to share your goals with someone! Using an accountability partner can assist you in keeping on track during the process.
