New Year’s Resolution Check-In or Check-Out….

New Year’s Resolution Check-In or Check-Out….

We are in the 3rd week of January!  Did you beat the statistic???? Here is a recap:

Many fall off the “Resolution” wagon before January 12th! This is due primarily to  two reasons: 1) sheer dependence on “Will Power“, which never leads to permanent change and 2) setting unrealistic goals/expectations.

Hopefully NOT, if you set S.M.A.R.T Goals! Here is another recap:

S.M.A.R.T. Goals vs New Year’s Resolutions

So are are S.M.A.R.T. goals?

An acronym for specific, measurable, attainable, relevant
AND time-based. Realistic goals are detailed and addresses the
who/what/when/where and how.

Examples:

 

Typical goal: I will start eating fruit every day
S.M.A.R.T. goal: I will eat one piece of fruit at breakfast three times this week

Typical goal: I will stop eating out so much for lunch
S.M.A.R.T. goal: I will pack my lunch two times this week instead of eating out

Typical goal: I will lose 30 pounds in the New Year
S.M.A.R.T. goal: I will lose 1-2 pounds per week in the next 6 months by following the recommendations of my Registered Dietitian and tracking my weight weekly.
