We’ve all experienced it. It’s a new beginning, and we make individual resolutions. Then we quit by February. Why does this happen?

1. Make Fitness Goals, Not Resolutions

Resolutions are a strict resolve to do or not do a behavior. As a result, they’re exact and can be intimidating.

Goals are an objective of your ambition, a plan or a favorable effect. They appear less formidable—and more feasible.

Suppose that you come into this year with the mind-set of setting achievable goals, as opposed to making intimidating resolutions? Rethinking your thought process and being nicer to yourself is the first move toward development.

2. Make SMART Fitness Goals

Your goals for 2020 might incorporate:

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

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

SMART goals motivate you to meet targets and acknowledge victories during your journey.

How Do You Come Up With a SMART Goal?

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

Your SMART goals could involve:

  1. Read for 20 minutes before you go to bed nightly this week.
  2. Consume veggies at every meal this week.
  3. Walk after dinner each day this week.

Creating SMART goals will prevent you from being overpowered by what you want to attain.

3. Share Your Fitness Goals with a Family Member

Remember to tell someone about your goals! Using an accountability partner can assist you in keeping motivated during the process.
