Smart goals

  1. 1. PERSONAL GOALS<br />Haley Levine<br />Wellness Choices<br />Professor Jose Gonzalez<br />July 29, 2010<br /> ”I cant change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to reach my destination” – Jimmy Dean <br />
  2. 2. SMART GOALS:<br />Specific<br />Measurable<br />Attainable<br />Realistic<br />Timely<br />
  3. 3. SPECIFIC GOALS:<br />Who?: I am the one that can change and exercise <br />What?: I want to get in a better cardio condition<br />Where?: From my house all around campus and back (4 miles)<br />When?: Every morning at 8:00 for thirty minutes <br />Which?: Requirements are to wake up at 7:30, stretch and have a light breakfast, and constraints are to pick up mu running pace a few minutes faster each week till goal attained<br />Why?: To benefit my heart and to live a healthy life<br />
  4. 4. SPECIFIC GOALS:<br />I would like to achieve the goal of waking up at 8:00 each morning and running four miles in thirty minutes.<br />
  5. 5. MEASUREABLE GOALS:<br />How much?: I will use my watch to time myself <br />How many?: I will start out 3 days a week then add on another day ever second week.<br />How will I know when it is accomplished?: I will keep a record of the time it takes me each morning as I progress throughout the weeks till I reach my goal<br />
  6. 6. MEASUREABLE GOALS:<br />Each morning I will get up and time myself and record the time it takes me to run 4 miles.<br />
  7. 7. ATTAINABLE GOALS:<br />I believe I will be able to achieve my goal because I do run daily and can improve my time by being more conscious about my speed per mile. I will allow my self a duration of 5 weeks to attain this goal.<br />
  8. 8. REALISTIC GOALS:<br />Do I truly believe that it can be accomplished?: Yes, I truly believe that my goal can be accomplished I am ambitious, always have been. <br />Have I accomplished anything similar in the past?: I have accomplished a goal similar to this one in the past when I was in highschool and needed to get in shape to keep up with the track team.<br />Can I identify the conditions that would have to exist to accomplish this goal?: The conditions that I would need to accomplish this goal would be to purchase some soy protein powder to keep my body energized and healthy, and drink plenty of water. <br />
  9. 9. REALISTIC GOALS:<br />My goal is a realistic one because when I am determined to do something, I will not stop till it has been finished. I am not in too bad of shape now so my goals aren’t unreachable.<br />
  10. 10. TIMELY GOALS: <br />I will allow myselffiveweeks to attain my goal of four miles in thirty minutes.<br />
  11. 11. PREDISPOSING FACTORS:<br />I ran track in highschool, I try and keep active in many ways such as playing tennis, hiking, soccer, swimming (I teach swimming lessons and I lifeguard), rollerbladding, and riding my bike as much as possible in replacement of my car.<br />
  12. 12. ENABLING FACTORS:<br />Positive: I purchased a treadmill and I set it up in my living room so I can jog while its raining outside, and not use that as an excuse not to exercise. <br />Negative: I get horrible shin splints, and “water on the knee” pretty badly so I will have to make sure and stretch properly each day.<br />
  13. 13. REINFORCING FACTORS:<br />I have some friends that are also trying to get in better cardiovascular shape, company is always nice while going for a jog. <br />I will give myself a day of eating whatever I like if I have completed my workouts for the week, which is something to look forward to. <br />
  14. 14. BARRIERS:<br />Since I am prone to getting shin splints and “water on the knee” this may prevent me from fulfilling my goal exactly on time, but whatever it takes I will achieve it as soon as I can without hurting my body.<br />I may get called in to work and not be able to run in the morning, which might throw me off a bit. <br />
  15. 15. RESOURCES:<br />I have many friends that are runners and they can assist in training me. <br />There is an Olympia Sports store right down the street from me and many local shops here that I can avail from if I need any equipment to fulfill my goal. <br />
  16. 16. CHART:<br />
  17. 17. GOAL ATTAINED?<br />All my hard work paid off! I reached my goal and feel so much better about myself. In the process I have lost 5 pounds and gained about 3 back in muscle. I am proud of myself and I am ready to make some more goals for improvement!<br />
