Fitness Tip: Goal setting

As you are looking at setting goal for this year, make sure you make SMART fitness goals. SMART stands for Specific, Measurable, Accountable, Realistic and Timeframe.

• Be specific, such as "I want to lose 10 pounds" not "I want to lose some weight."

• Make goals measurable, for example, losing one pound per week.

• Being accountable and tracking your progress in a journal can be very motivating.

• Be realistic, and don't set your goals too lofty at or you might not achieve them and get discouraged.

• Set a reasonable timeframe your goal and a firm completion date.
