Get S.M.A.R.T.

Face it, being fit and healthy is the same process that it takes to be successful in business:

  • set goals
  • have a plan
  • stick to the plan
  • use a formal structure
  • do it even when you don't particularly feel like it, and
  • take time off

In keeping with this philosophy, I'd like to suggest the use of James Arthur Ray's (seen in "The Secret"), "S.M.A.R.T." goal for your fitness goals, whatever they may be:  Be specific, make it measurable and set a date.

For best results, goals should meet three important criteria: They are specific, measurable and timed.
The S.M.A.R.T. goal is one that is:

  • Specific
  • Measurable
  • Achievable
  • Realistic
  • Time-Sensitive

Instead of "I want to lose weight," make it specific and measurable: "I will be in excellent condition: My body will have 25 percent body fat, and I will be able enjoy jogging for 45 minutes."

So, tell me:  what is your specific goal?

Unless you make a goal specific its hard to obtain. My goal is to jog three days a week.

good for you, Vicki!  what is your specific goal in jogging three days a week?

Hi Loretta,

My goal is to walk 2+ miles five days a week.  That will support my other goals of losing weight, being healthier, happier and getting the dogs their exercise too. 

Posted by Leslie Bloss, Bellevue Real Estate Professional almost 13 years ago
Yes!  well done--very specific, and a great start.  your dogs will thank you as well (although I must admit, mine was a little hard to convince, lazy thing, until I started bringing a frisbee as incentive!)  see--we all need a little extra motivation sometimes! :-)

Perfect timing as I was just beating myself up for not hitting my goal this week.  I have a personal goal of working out for at least 30 minutes a day, each day.  Even if it is just walking or simple exercise...a little can go a long way!

A wonderful reminder. I plan to "regroup" this weekend and revise my plans so this is good timing. Thanks, Rhonda

No beating self allowed, Leah!  As I understand it, we need to congratulate ourselves for what we have done, and give no energy to whatever we may not have done...and a daily exercise commitment is perfect--then it's a habit!  :-)

Yay, Rhonda!  I think the first step is the most important!

I would like to spend at least 1 hour every morning calling, e-mailing and mailing clients that have told me they will be buying a home in the next 12 months - while I do my calls, Ill be pacing around the room with a pedometer so I can lose a couple pounds and gain a couple pennies.

Add some breathing exercises, too, Scott, then you can say you're working aerobically!  ha...
