Setting S.M.A.R.T. Goals

Crossfit Central Lean Turkey's started their challenge with a goal setting meeting with the famous Ms. Carey Kepler! Carey was able to take the concept of Goal Setting and make it very simple. I thought it was too good  not to share. She encourage all of our athletes to set "S.M.A.R.T. Goals".

Specific. Make sure your goal is specific. Don't just say "I want to wake up earlier"; how much earlier. How much do you want to decrease your body fat by?
Measurable. The goal needs to be able to be measured. "I want to lose weight by Dec.2012". How are you doing to measure that goal?
Attainable. The goal should be realistic  within the time frame. If you have a 6 week challenge, losing 100# within that 6wks isn't realistic.
Relevant. The goal should be relevant to the "challenge". If you are in a healthy challenge, your goal should be, "I want to save X amount".
Time. The goal should have an end date. You want to lose 5% body fat by when?

Setting "SMART Goals" can be useful and helpful for all areas of your life! Once the goals have been written,  use dry erase makers and write them on your mirror so you can see them every day!
