SMART - The Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Realistic and Timely way to a slimmer me...
Specific ~ I have 7 pounds to lose to get back to my Mom status. How do I do that?
Measurable ~ I will begin measuring my food to have more accurate account of what I am eating. After reaching the master of maintenance I have to admit I got lazy with measuring my food. I paid the price by gaining some of that weight back and now I have to work to lose it again. Lesson learned!
Attainable ~ I know from attaining my goal once that this is more than attainable by tracking both nutrition and fitness. Having a workout program in place that interchanges both strength training (my weakness) and cardio(my love) will get me where I need to be.
Realistic ~ Life happens and no one is perfect. The reality is my weight loss will be a life long commitment. There is no real time off and that is not a curse but a commitment that I want for myself.
Timely ~ I have 12 weeks to reach my goal. Over that time I will plan out my workouts and take time for myself as well. Due to my job I get very little time for me so I am also planning some yoga and relaxation as well.
