My Commitment

My SMART goals are: Limit serving of rice to 1 cup everyday for a week or two then progress to 1 cup every other day for another week until I reached my goal of 1 serving of rice 2-3 times a week only. Walk (treadmill) for 30 minutes 3x a week then by next week progress to running starting with 1 mile then increase by a mile each time until I reached my goal of at least 5k (3.5 miles) 2-3 times a week. Find another PCP by next month and make an appointment and be seen by and MD before the year ends. My over all goal is to get back to 130 pounds by summer 2020.

Jade Villasin‍ I love the way you wrote this goal.  It seems very specific, with small steps to make it achievable!  How are you doing with this?  The holidays always make healthy eating a challenge!

SMART goal setting helps you gear your ideas in the right direction. To help myself exercise better by utilizing the tool I will do the following. S is for specific goal so my specific goal would to be get at least 30 minutes of exercise 3 days out of the week. M is for measurable so to measure my goal I will use my fit bit to help me log my activity and reflect on my goals. A is for attainable so to attain these goals I will only shoot for 3 days out of the week, and not the recommended 5. This would be more realistic for me, as I said I have not exercised in quite some time. R is for realistic so to be realistic about my exercise, I can exercise on my eliptical. I purchased one and used it only a few times. I believe this will help me reach my goal more realistically rather than walking my dog which is a lot of stopping and going. Lastly T is for time oriented so I will make my goal to reach until the end of January. Nothing says good motivation but trying to start the new year off great!
