You folks all rocked 2018, so I can’t wait to hear what’s next. Are you going to run more? Lift more? Eat better?
I like to think of a year’s goals in terms of a year-long plan. What will you be doing this spring, this summer, this fall? When December rolls around again, what accomplishments would you like to have under your belt?
But be realistic. What are some small changes you can make? For example, if you currently run, you can add some mileage. If you’ve been lifting weights, but without any specific plan, find a good training program and start working toward specific goals.
We’ve long said that good goals are specific, measurable, achievable, relevant, and time-bound (“S.M.A.R.T. goals”) so consider checking in on your goals every month or every quarter. Could you take body measurements every month? Test your one-rep-max lifts every quarter? Write down how many miles you run every week?
The new year is just a few days away, so now is the time to finalise those goals. What are you aiming for? And what’s your plan to get there?
