We’ve all experienced it. It’s a new beginning, and we set individual resolutions. Then we abandon them in just a few weeks. Why does this take place?

1. Write Down Fitness Goals, Not Resolutions

Resolutions are a strict promise to do or not do something. For this reason, they’re rigid and may be daunting.

Goals are a target of your effort, an ambition or a favorable reaction. They seem less dreadful—and more possible.

What if you approach the new year with the mind-set of making attainable goals, in place of setting unattainable resolutions? Reassessing how you think about things and being nicer to yourself is a start toward progress.

2. Make SMART Fitness Goals

Your goals for the year could include:

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

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

SMART goals motivate you to reach objectives and celebrate achievements during your journey.

How Do You Create a SMART Goal?

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

Your SMART goals could include:

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

Creating SMART goals will help you avoid becoming defeated by what you want to attain.

3. Share Your Fitness Goals with a Friend

Don’t forget to tell someone about your goals! Having an accountability partner can assist you in keeping motivated during the process.
