Yesterday, I shared out some resolution concepts with you in terms of what to stop doing and what to start doing.

Pick 1-3 goals to work on at a time as taking on too much at once usually does not work.

Today, let me take this one step further and help you to design these resolutions that will indeed be something that you can go after and achieve.

If you focus on following this approach, you’ll be on your way to a brand new healthier version of yourself.

1).  Set it up to be SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Realistic & Timely)

When you think of creating a resolution ask yourself the following:

  • What am I looking to improve?
  • Why do I want to do this?
  • What needs to happen in order for me to become a better version of myself?
  • What am I hoping to achieve by completing this resolution?
  • Is the overall resolution something that can be measured in steps/smaller goals?

Be honest with yourself & pick resolutions that you feel are truly meaningful to you & that you can attain.

2). Identify what steps you need to do to complete your goal(s)

Define your who, what, where & hows:

  • Where am I now? 
  • What does progress look & feel like? 
  • What do I need to do to achieve my resolution?
  • What do I need to change to achieve my resolution? 
  • Where can I start? 
  • What sequence of steps makes sense? 
  • How will each of these steps make me feel?
  • Where do I want to be in 1, 3, 6, or 12 months?

Defining a strategy on how you will achieve your goal is key to your success.

3). Focus on your goals and gameplan to track how you are doing

Now that you have identified your resolution and established action steps to achieve it, ask yourself:

  • Now that I know my steps, how will I create a plan that works?
  • How will I track my progress? 

With your action steps outlined, you need to create a way to track your progress to be sure that you are on point.

This could be a journal, to-do list, spreadsheet, or app like

Knowing that you are moving the needle on your goal will allow you to see and feel the change.

4). Accountability Partners

When you reflect on your resolution(s) thus far, ask yourself the following:

  • Do I need any outside support in order to achieve my goals? 
  • Is there anyone or anything that will help keep me accountable? 
  • How do I work best? 
  • What else do I need?

What does accountability look like to you?

Working collaboratively with friends, family members or a functional nutrition coach will help you to succeed if you can’t do it alone.

5). Don’t Get Upset If You Go Astray

You are not a robot, you’re human.

Trying to do something new is never easy and life happens.

Don’t fret if you lose your focus, but remember that tomorrow is always there and can reboot and start over again.

Be calm, collected, and patient with yourself and you can achieve your goals.

Change is hard, but you can do it!

The key is to celebrate along the way and pat yourself on the back for all the hard work that you’ve put into achieving your goals.
