Goal Setting for the New Year
From the desk of Jill Spradlin, Fitness and Health Trainer Department Head:
One of the most common New Year’s resolutions is to lose weight, go to the gym, and get fit; though many of these aspirations fall a little short! When making your New Year’s resolutions, or anytime throughout the year, make sure you use the acronym SMART for effective goal setting.
- Set a schedule and be consistent.
- Break up with old habits.
- What you eat in private, shows in public.
- Your stomach is not a trash can.
- One meal won’t make you fat, one work out won’t make you thin.
- Be proud of yourself.
- Give yourself compliments and mean it.
- Don’t be afraid to lift heavy.
- Cut out sugary drinks.
- Ask for help from a National Certified Personal Trainer.
