  3. 3. Specific <ul><li>I would like to start exercising at least three to five times a week. </li></ul><ul><li>At home in Massachusetts I have a gym membership, and work out equipment at home with a whole routine, which makes working when I am home more convenient. </li></ul><ul><li>In New Hampshire my schedule is a lot busier with school and work, and its a lot easier to put off, or forget about going to the gym. </li></ul>
  4. 4. Specific <ul><li>So with that being said: </li></ul><ul><li>I want to work out a plan that works around my schedule to make sure I'm getting in a good work out at least 3 times a week. </li></ul><ul><li>I love healthy food, but when I am at school I often get cheap, quick, and easy food which tends to be processed, and high in empty calories. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Specific <ul><li>I also skip meals, and never eat breakfast. I plan to take the time to make sure I eat healthier. </li></ul><ul><li>I should eat breakfast, because Its Great. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Measurable <ul><li>I will keep a calendar and write down how long, and what I did for a work out. That way I can make sure I am meeting my goal, and tracking my progress. </li></ul><ul><li>I will also weigh myself at least once a week, and mark that on the calendar as well. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Measurable <ul><li>I need to make sure that I food shop, and have something for breakfast, lunch and dinner at all times. </li></ul>
  8. 8. Attainable <ul><li>I know that I can attain these goals. </li></ul><ul><li>I enjoy living a healthy life when I do, and its what I want. </li></ul><ul><li>I like to exercise as well.

  12. 12. Process-Results-Assessment: <ul><li>In order to successfully achieve my goal: </li></ul><ul><li>I had to push myself, especially in the beginning. </li></ul><ul><li>Once I was done with the first week I started to feel the benefits, which has been my main source of motivation. </li></ul><ul><li>However, there were some days that were harder than others. On those days I felt like slacking and not doing a thing, I told myself that any exercise was better than no exercise. By the time I got to the gym, and started exercising a bit, I realized I actually did feel like being there, and pushed myself. </li></ul><ul><li>I learned that you have to give yourself a little wiggle room. If I felt like eating junk food, I wouldn't deprive myself. I would just make sure I watched my portions. Balance is key. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Process-Results-Assessment: <ul><li>Working out, is important, but resting is just as important! </li></ul><ul><li>Working out and eating healthy has given me energy, and has made me feel really great about myself. </li></ul><ul><li>Overall I feel healthy, and I am happy with my results, and fully intend to make this a permanent change. </li></ul><ul><li>If I don't work out for a couple of days, I shouldn't give up all together, rather just get back on track when I can. It is important not to be too hard on yourself. </li></ul><ul><li>I feel that I chose the right goal for me. I am by no means a &quot;winter person&quot;, and I tend to feel sluggish during the winter, and often get the &quot;winter blues&quot;. Exercising and eating right really makes a world of difference for me. I feel happy, healthy, energetic, and motivated. </li></ul>
