S.M.A.R.T. Goals


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Tuesday, November 13, 2012

I guess it is not enough to have goals...now they must be SMART goals! This means Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic, and Timely. Therefore, I am reaffirming my goals in SMART terms.

Goal #1: Reach and maintain a healthy weight for my body in a sensible manner.
SMART Revision: Lose 10 lbs by January 1, 2013 from current weight of 254.

Goal #2: Participate in an exercise program that incorporates stretching, strength training, cardio, and core fitness.
SMART Revision: Participate in cardio or strength training for at least 10 minutes, 7 days a week.

Goal #3: Pass along healthy habits to my children and grandchildren. "Teach one to reach one"
SMART Revision: Exchange one 'sweet treat' for a healthy choice on each visit with my grandchildren. Exchange one healthy recipe per week with my daughter.

    I like this motto - "Teach one to reach one" :D I don't have my own youngs but I do have parents and nieces (elder brother and sis in-law are too intimidating to teach, hehe).

Good luck with your goals!

  Those sound like great goals! Realistic being the major criterion. It's so hard to change a ton of things at once. Good luck to you - you are well on your way!
