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

1. Set Fitness Goals, Not Resolutions

Resolutions are a strict resolve to do or not do an action. As a consequence, they’re absolute and might be intimidating.

Goals are an objective of your ambition, a purpose or a desired result. They appear less formidable—and more obtainable.

What if you go into 2020 with the mind-set of setting attainable goals, rather than choosing intimidating resolutions? Reexamining your thought process and being more forgiving to yourself is the first step toward growth.

2. Create SMART Fitness Goals

Your goals this year could incorporate:

  • Professional—receiving a promotion at your job.
  • Health—starting a strength training routine.
  • Personal—reading more books.

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

SMART goals inspire you to achieve objectives and celebrate achievements during the process.

How Do You Create a SMART Goal?

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

Your SMART goals could be:

  1. Read for 20 minutes before sleeping each night this week.
  2. Have greens at every meal this week.
  3. Take a walk after supper every day this week.

Making SMART goals will stop you from being overpowered by what you want to achieve.

3. Share Your Fitness Goals with a Family Member

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