We’ve all done it. It’s a new beginning, and we set particular resolutions. Then we abandon them by February. Why does this occur?

1. Write Down Fitness Goals, Not Resolutions

Resolutions are a firm resolve to do or not do an action. Consequently, they’re absolute and can be discouraging.

Goals are the intention of your drive, a purpose or a desired reaction. They seem less scary—and more obtainable.

Suppose that you approach 2020 with the attitude of choosing attainable goals, in place of choosing unattainable resolutions? Reassessing your thinking process and being nicer to yourself is a start toward development.

2. Create SMART Fitness Goals

Your goals for the year might incorporate:

  • Professional—getting a bigger salary at your job.
  • Health—starting a strength training schedule.
  • Personal—reading additional books.

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

SMART goals drive you to meet targets and acknowledge victories during the process.

How Do You Create a SMART Goal?

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

Personal SMART goals could be:

  1. Read for 20 minutes before sleeping each night this week.
  2. Consume veggies at every meal this week.
  3. Take a walk after your evening meal every day this week.

Setting SMART goals will prevent you from becoming overpowered by what you want to achieve.

3. Share Your Fitness Goals with a Friend

Don’t forget to reveal your goals to someone! Having an accountability partner can assist you in keeping motivated during the process.
