    Dawn - Hope you don't mind I'm copying your log. I have a hard time keeping up with a piece of paper. Hard to believe since all I do all day is shuffle paper! I do accounts payable among other things and I match invoices with purchase orders with delivery tickets!!

"Just DO It"...the S.M.A.R.T. way!

Monday, April 30, 2012

~ Let go of feeling guilty and do what can be accomplished between sunrise and sunset!
~ Follow a daily schedule to maximize use of time!
~ Plan meals the night before so there are no split second decisons or skipping meals!
~ Schedule fitness into the first part of the day and don't set "me" aside for other thing that seem more pressing at the time!
~ Have a plan B for exercise in case things don't go as planned!
~ Use the water visual daily until it become habit again!
~ Use additonal means of measuring progress and results other than just the scale!

    Great idea on # 1....I think we all get that guilty feeling sometimes but need to remember to let it go when there just aren't enough hours in the day. I love that you have a plan B too!

    EXCELLENT Plan of Action!!! Doesn't it feel reassuring to have a Foundation...Something you can refer back to often to stay FOCUSED and On-Task? !?!?! Very Good Goals to Aim For!!!

MJK- This is the S.M.A.R.T. info you were asking about...

A useful way of making goals more powerful is to use SMART. While there are plenty of variants (some of which we've included in parenthesis), SMART usually stands for:

S - Specific (or Significant).
M - Measurable (or Meaningful).
A - Attainable (or Action-Oriented).
R - Relevant (or Rewarding).
T - Time-bound (or Trackable).

Keep Aiming for your Goal...You Will Get there if you are CONSISTENT and KEEP TAKING ACTION!

Now Go on wijo bad self...We got us some Goals to ACHIEVE!!!!

    Love that you have a Plan 'B'. I need one of those. What the heck does S.M.A.R.T stand for? I've seen it mentioned a few times.

You rock, what else is there to say!

    #1 is a toughie! It's hard to let go of the guilt sometimes!
This is a great plan, very sensible and straight forward! With the busy summer coming up, keep yourself taken care of, I'll help remind you! emoticon
