We’ve all been there. It’s the new year, and we create personal resolutions. Then we give up in a month. Why does this take place?

1. Write Down Fitness Goals, Not Resolutions

Resolutions are a steadfast commitment to do or not do something. On account of this, they’re rigid and may be intimidating.

Goals are an objective of your drive, an aim or a wanted result. They appear less formidable—and more possible.

What if you go into this year with the attitude of making reachable goals, as an alternative to setting unattainable resolutions? Reframing your thinking process and being nicer to yourself is the first step toward improvement.

2. Create SMART Fitness Goals

Your goals this year may involve:

  • Professional—obtaining a bigger salary in your career.
  • Health—starting a strength training workout.
  • Personal—reading more books.

Now that you’ve set your goals, how do you keep committed to reaching them?

SMART goals energize you to reach milestones and celebrate victories during your journey.

How Do You Choose a SMART Goal?

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

Your SMART goals could be:

  1. Read for 20 minutes before you go to bed each night this week.
  2. Eat greens at every meal this week.
  3. Go for walks after dinner every day this week.

Setting SMART goals will help you avoid feeling defeated by what you want to attain.

3. Share Your Fitness Goals with a Loved One

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