We’ve all been there. It’s a new beginning, and we create personal resolutions. Then we abandon them by February. Why does this take place?

1. Write Down Fitness Goals, Not Resolutions

Resolutions are a firm resolve to do or not do a behavior. Because of this, they’re absolute and may be discouraging.

Goals are an objective of your ambition, a plan or a favorable reaction. They sound less dreadful—and more possible.

Suppose that you approach this year with the mind-set of making reachable goals, as an alternative to setting formidable resolutions? Reframing your thinking process and being kinder to yourself is the first step toward growth.

2. Create SMART Fitness Goals

Your goals this year might incorporate:

  • Professional—getting a promotion at work.
  • Health—having a strength training workout.
  • Personal—reading extra books.

Now that you’ve established your goals, how do you remain committed to accomplishing them?

SMART goals motivate you to meet targets and recognize victories during the process.

How Do You Create a SMART Goal?

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

Your SMART goals could be:

  1. Read for 20 minutes before sleeping nightly this week.
  2. Have veggies at each meal this week.
  3. Go for walks after dinner every day this week.

Having SMART goals will prevent you from becoming defeated by what you want to attain.

3. Share Your Fitness Goals with a Friend

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