No More Dieting
Anyone who knows me or has worked with me knows that I am not a believer in "dieting". All too often people get stuck on the roller-coaster of deprivation and excess leading to yo-yo-ing weights. I believe in lifestyle changes. That means changing one (or a few, depending on how ambitious you want to get) small thing at a time, and changing it for good. It is those incremental steps that get us to effective weight management over the course of a lifetime. [We're not looking for x pounds on your high school reunion night, we're looking for healthy living day in and day out.]
SMART Goal Setting
So that brings me to goal setting... Starting with a goal that is SMART will help start you on the right pathway to accomplishing it!
S - Specific
M - Measurable
A - Attainable
R - Relevant
T - Time-bound
I am doing a presentation next week (eee! I always love engaging with groups and seeing what they react strongest to from my presentations) and plan to conclude on this very topic. I know I've discussed goal setting here on Witty Nutrition before, but I can't emphasize enough how important it is to write your goals down and to hold yourself accountable. In health and nutrition and in life. It is a very effective tool.
So what are your goals? How have you been doing with ones previously established?
