Okay guys I'd like us to all identify some smart objectives to help build a team challenge. A lot of times it is very easy to say I want to lose 10 pounds but there is so much about that simple statement that is uncontrollable. Be it your time of the month, your salt intake, the temperature outside, your "regularity". The objective of this post is to find goals that we do have 100% control over. So therefore the keys for each goal you identify is it has to fit the following criteria:
S - Specific
M - Measurable
A - Attainable
R - Relevant
T- Time Restrained
An example could be a simple as: I want to drink 8 glasses of water every day this week. This is specific, is measurable down to the ounce, it's easily attainable, it's relevant to my weight loss goals, and it has a time limit so that I can't tell myself oh I will do that goal tomorrow.
Another example could be I want to run 3 miles 3 times this week aiming for Monday Wednesday and Saturday.
I want to lose 10 pounds this week is not a good example because not only is that likely not attainable, but you don't have direct control over it because of the lack of specificity as we pointed out before too many variables go into that number.
I want to walk is another type of example to avoid. There's no time limitation, there's no specificity of if you're walking from your couch to your refridgerator or 15 miles.
We're going to set up our challenge so that we start simple and build on our goals after a certain time period. So I'd love to see at least 5-10 SMART objectives that each of you have toward improving your healthy lifestyle. Be creative.
