Eat Right Nutrition Tips

Fit People and Vegetables and Fruit

Is this the year you resolve to get healthier? To succeed in reaching your goals, you'll need a solid plan. Studies have shown setting specific goals aids success. To set yourself up for success, establish a "SMART" goal.

Specific: State exactly what you want to do. Instead of saying, "I want to lose weight," say "I want to lose 10 pounds," or "I want to lose five percent of my body weight." Start small; you can re-set your goal once you've achieved it.

Measurable: Establish parameters and set a timeline. If your goal was "to lose weight," you wouldn't know how or when you accomplished it. Ask "How can I measure my goal? Do I need to establish an end date?"

Achievable: Your goal should be challenging, but reachable; allow for flexibility. Ask "Can I do this? Can I incorporate it into my schedule?"

Rewarding: Make yourself an offer you can't refuse. Ask "Once I reach my goal, how can I reward myself?"

Trackable: Create a way to track your progress and your pitfalls. This will help you identify ways to adjust your goal as needed. Ask yourself, "Can I keep track of my progress?"
