2016 Goals


It’s January 1st!

Maybe you’re up and at ’em at the crack of dawn like I am. Maybe your still asleep. Maybe you’re hugging the porcelain throne. Nonetheless, it’s a new year!

There’s lot of resolutioners out there. They say things just to say things – or maybe this year they maybe do mean them. A lot of people are going to say things over the next few days. Everyone is going to be gung-ho about gym time and rabbit food and doing things – yeah! ::insert fist to the sky here::


I prefer to set S.M.A.R.T. goals. Goals are specific, measurable, attainable, realistic, and timely. That way instead of saying “I’m going to lose weight in 2016!” I will say “I’m going to lose 8% of my body fat by June 2016”. Do you see the difference? Technically if I lose a pound by January 2, I have obtained everything that resolution said I was going to do – lose weight in 2016.


By setting a goal with more details, I know what I need to do and when I need to do it by. I know if I lose 1.5% body fat each month, I’ll surpass my goal. Is that realistic? Absolutely! I didn’t say I was going to lose 8% in 1 month (which can actually be done, but its very strict and likely will not stay with you).

So now that you understand how I’m doing things this year, let’s proceed.
