BLC22 - My S.M.A.R.T. Goals

Saturday, June 08, 2013

Here are my top three S.M.A.R.T Goals (Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevent, Time-Bound) for the BLC 22 challenge.

S-pecific ~ I will reduce my maximum heart rate during a 1.5 mile run
M-easurable ~ I will reduce maximum heart rate by 10 points.
A-ttainable ~ I will research ways of reducing my heart rate during runs by following a different training plan if necessary, improving breathing and running technique.
R-elevant ~ I’m concerned that my maximum heart rate is a little too high during runs, so I plan to monitor and record it. I also plan to review the results at my next physical with my doctor.
T-imely ~ My maximum HR will be reduced on my final fitness run test.

S-pecific ~ I will NOT make any excuses for not eating healthy or exercising
M-easurable ~ My SPY peeps are my measurable. I want my team to ‘call me out’ when I make an excuse on the SPY chat thread. The only excuse allowed for me would be illness or injury related.
A-ttainable ~ If I keep a positive attitude this is very attainable.
R-elevant ~ I’m tired of excuses.
T-imely ~ No excuses for me for during the next 12 weeks.

S-pecific ~ I will hit my goal weight and start maintenance.
M-easureable ~ If I lose .9lbs a week, I will hit my FINAL goal weight.
A-ttainable ~ If I consistently track my food and exercise this is attainable. Tracking is the key for me!
R-elevant ~ It is time to become a MOM (Master of Maintenance)
T-imely ~ I will be making an announcement on August 28th.

    Reducing your HR is a tough one. Mine would hit 190 when I'd d a 5k, not good. Training in different zones is the key.

I'm ready to celebrate both of us becoming MOM's this round! emoticon
