SMART plan - BLC 22

SMART Plan - BLC 22

I have been with BLC for several rounds now, and my goals have pretty much been the same: maintain current weight, increase strength training, and get 10,000 steps per day. On a personal note, I have endeavored to develop my spiritual side and learn to manage stress. To most people, I appear calm and unruffled. But managing stress is more than appearing calm in stressful situations, but to actually develop a calm spirit that is not ruffled in difficult circumstances.

My big goal for this round is to develop health habits that are sustainable.
~ I plan to cut back a bit on the cardio, and increase the strength training. Over the long term, I believe ST will be more sustainable then more and more cardio.
~ I will take a rest day on Wednesdays. With my FitBit (which I love), I hated to have a day go by where I didn’t get at least 10000 steps, so I wasn’t taking any “rest” days.
~ I will continue working on managing stress through passage meditation. Spending time with Scripture and other spiritual readings will calm my mind and spirit, as well as bring me to a closer relationship with our Creator.

Not sure if I covered all the S.M.A.R.T. labels or not, but I will be happy if I succeed with the above.

    Very good goals, Anne! I like your distinction between appearing calm and really being calm. Your work out plan is right on target! Strength is a huge goal for me, too.

    Wonderful obtainable goals...relate to stress not being discernable that's why I joined a gym to get it all out in the open! Best to you, it will happen!
