SMART stands for Specific Measurable Achievable Realistic and Time. When setting a goal (long-term or short-term) it needs to be specific, the more specific the better. For example one of my goals this year is to get down to a BMI of 20%. Measurable for my goal means to be able to check in weekly (weekly weigh ins) and see if I am coming any closer to my BMI goal. If your goals are more mental try keeping a journal to track yourself. Is your goal achievable? It is great to set high goals but…you want to be able to check it off. Something that would be a good example of this is if my goal was to get a BMI of 20% by tomorrow…probably not going to happen. Which brings us to being realistic.
