S.M.A.R.T. goals start of BLC22

Sunday, June 09, 2013

S - Specifically, I will be tracking the food I eat every day, exercising a minimum of 20 minutes a day at least 5 days of each week for 12 weeks.

M - By tracking both food and exercise on a daily basis, I will be able to measure my success by seeing the numbers on the scale go down!

A - Because of being on vacation for an extended period of time, I have kept my goal (lose 6 pounds in 12 weeks) on the light side. While I will "hope" to lose more, I will be pleased if I lose that much.

R - I believe my goals to be relevant as they will directly correlate with what my intentions lose weight to improve my health and appearance.

T - My goals are time bound by the length of BLC - 12 weeks. If I lose a pound by every 2nd week for sure I will attain my goal.

    I really like your goal to keep at it while you are away, but with the understanding that your life is not being put on hold. We all need to incorporate our goals and plans to meet our goals into our daily lives, so it becomes habit. I know emoticon
