Happy New Year!!
By now, you are all resting and probably still digesting all the wonderful holiday food you have had! I hope the holidays were a blessed time for you and your family. It is not too early to be thinking about the new year and what changes you can start to make to ensure that 2015 will be healthy and happy for you and your family!
Let’s start thinking about the simple and effective ways you can start the new year. Let’s work to set your goals and make them happen!
Setting fitness and nutrition goals doesn’t have to be the daunting task that is can sometimes be. There are some very simple ways to tackle your goal setting writer’s block!

Don’t overwhelm yourself! Take it slow and stay consistent.
Make a list of your goals based on the SMART concept. Let’s use the example of eating healthy.
- Specific: make your goal outcome based. “I want to lose 10 pounds in January”
- Measurable: identify a method to track your progress
- Assignable: who will do it? YOU!
- Realistic: go easy on yourself and don’t set the bar too high
- Time-Related: specify when you want to achieve the results, i.e. 10 pounds in January
From here, we can take the approach of putting these goals into action. Write them down, post them all over the place – in your car, on your mirror, on your fridge. See them everyday and inspire yourself.
