We’ve all done it. It’s a new beginning, and we make personal resolutions. Then we quit in just a few weeks. Why does this occur?

1. Set Fitness Goals, Not Resolutions

Resolutions are a strict decision to do or not do something. For this reason, they’re absolute and may be discouraging.

Goals are a target of your drive, an ambition or a desired effect. They sound less formidable—and more reachable.

Suppose that you go into the new year with the attitude of setting reachable goals, in place of making intimidating resolutions? Reframing how you think about things and being more forgiving to yourself is a start toward progress.

2. Make SMART Fitness Goals

Your goals for the year might involve:

  • Professional—receiving a promotion in your career.
  • Health—starting a strength training routine.
  • Personal—reading more books.

Now that you’ve established your goals, how do you remain committed to achieving them?

SMART goals empower you to achieve objectives and acknowledge accomplishments during your journey.

How Do You Choose a SMART Goal?

SMART represents specific, measurable, achievable, realistic and time-based. These goals are distinct but not overpowering.

Personal SMART goals could involve:

  1. Read for 20 minutes before you go to sleep each night this week.
  2. Eat vegetables at every meal this week.
  3. Walk after your evening meal daily this week.

Having SMART goals will help you avoid becoming defeated by what you want to attain.

3. Share Your Fitness Goals with a Friend

Don’t forget to tell someone about your goals! Keeping an accountability partner can aid you in remaining motivated during the process.
