We’ve all been there. It’s the new year, and we choose personal resolutions. Then we abandon them in a month. Why does this happen?

1. Write Down Fitness Goals, Not Resolutions

Resolutions are a strict commitment to do or not do an action. For this reason, they’re exact and may be discouraging.

Goals are a target of your drive, an ambition or a desired reaction. They appear less formidable—and more obtainable.

What if you approach the new year with the mind-set of making attainable goals, rather than setting formidable resolutions? Rethinking your thinking process and being nicer to yourself is the first step toward improvement.

2. Make SMART Fitness Goals

Your goals for the year might incorporate:

  • Professional—obtaining a promotion at your job.
  • Health—beginning a strength training workout.
  • Personal—reading extra books.

Now that you’ve established your goals, how do you keep dedicated to reaching them?

SMART goals drive you to achieve targets and recognize accomplishments during your journey.

How Do You Write a SMART Goal?

SMART signifies specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-based. They are clear but not overpowering.

Personal SMART goals could be:

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

Having SMART goals will stop you from being overpowered by what you want to attain.

3. Share Your Fitness Goals with a Family Member

Be certain to tell someone about your goals! Keeping an accountability partner can help you in staying motivated during the process.
