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

1. Create Fitness Goals, Not Resolutions

Resolutions are a strict resolve to do or not do an action. As a consequence, they’re absolute and can be intimidating.

Goals are a target of your drive, a purpose or a desired effect. They sound less formidable—and more possible.

Suppose that you approach the new year with the attitude of setting attainable goals, as an alternative to setting formidable resolutions? Reviewing how you think about things and being more forgiving to yourself is the first move toward development.

2. Create SMART Fitness Goals

Your goals for the year could involve:

  • Professional—getting a promotion in your career.
  • Health—having a strength training schedule.
  • Personal—reading more books.

Now that you’ve set your goals, how do you stay determined to achieving them?

SMART goals motivate you to reach targets and celebrate success during your journey.

How Do You Come Up With a SMART Goal?

SMART means specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-based. These goals are clear but not overpowering.

Personal SMART goals could involve:

  1. Read for 20 minutes before sleeping nightly this week.
  2. Eat veggies at all meals this week.
  3. Go for walks after dinner daily this week.

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

3. Share Your Fitness Goals with a Family Member

Be certain to reveal your goals to someone! Having an accountability partner can aid you in staying on track during the process.
