SMART GOALS =

Tuesday, May 31, 2011

S -- SPECIFIC, details details, details
can you see it?
what does it look like?
can you see yourself in the picture?

M- MEASURABLE ,
how will you measure your progress?
when will you know you have reached it?
what are the bench marks through the journey?

A- ACTION,
are you willing? able?
REP'S, DO IT, GET ON WITH IT AND OVER WITH IT

R- REALISTIC
What are you motivating factors?
what is your gut telling you?

T- TIME BOUND,

why set a time, it = RESULTS
DEAD LINES ARE MOTIVATING

i took a class with Garry Carlson on setting SMART GOALS
GARRY is a personal motivational coach www.garrycarlson.com

I learned so much, and was able to take a really deep look at many parts of my life.

he gave out three different hand outs,
first was:

J.U.M.P - Just Understanding My Priorities
and btw, the class was not on loosing weight, it was for achieving our life goals
so i am sitting their and applying, processing all the information he is sharing and it hits me like a sledge hammer . LOL
I am not loosing my fat due to NOT PRIOITING THE WEIGHT LOSS JOURNEY, What the heck
nor am i Priotiting myself.. hhhhhmmmm very interesting

The next hand out was "IT'S ABOUT TIME"

Third was SMART GOALS

so... if you have a group that you can get together i believe he travels and he does on the phone coaching.. check him out.

i have applied his Smart Goal outline to many things,/ different aspect in my life

here are some of my weight loss ones..

my vision board for weight loss started out as

I AM STRONG ENOUGH TO :

first I am statement was,
I am strong enough to eat right every time i put something in my mouth

ironically, i wrote this and stop and thought and thought.
then i applied the SMART GOAL, questions to it..
was this realistic, LOL heck no i knew i could make great choice's most of the time
but was everything i put in going to be perfect. NO
so i switch the I am statement to:

I AM STRONG ENOUGH TO CONTROL MY PORTION EVERYTIME I EAT,
that i can do ! emoticon

Next i wrote i am going to excise everyday, again i applied the SMART GOAL PLAN TO THE STATEMENT, and realized it was so NOT specific enough
so i changed it to

I AM STRONG ENOUGH TO LIFE WEIGHTS EVERY DAY! note i didn't put this hugh unrealistic weight lifting plan, i am going to just lift EVERY DAY!

I AM STRONG ENOUGH TO WALK ON MY TREADMILL EVERY DAY

last but, not lease is a vision board

I AM WORTH IT, BEAUTIFUL AND SEXY ! ! ! ! ! ! !
below this i wrote, LOL if your not feeling it, put in Zumba and dance till you feel it completely! ! !

so this is my JUNE GOAL ! !

    Thank you for sharing the S.M.A.R.T. tips! Smart Goals can be applied to any and every aspect of our lives, but I tend to forget or give myself excuses not to follow. I am going to re-set my goals with "I am strong enough to..." statements. So, thanks again for sharing!

    Hi! Thanks for this great blog. It makes so much sense. Just a little tweaking of words/thoughts can make or break our goals. I'll keep this in the forefront as I review my goals. :) Have a super day!
