SMART GOAL

  1. 1. Makin’ Changes<br />Carly Newton<br />Final Presentation<br />Wellness Choices PE 2850<br />
  2. 2. Smart Goal: eat Healthier<br />Specific: I will alter my eating habits so that I feel healthier. I am going to replace certain foods/beverages that I regularly consume with their healthier alternatives.<br />Measureable: I am going to create a daily blog, using blogger.com, of the foods I eat and rate my decisions on a scale of 1 to 5. 1 being terrible and 5 being super-awesome! After the 22 days I will have gained up to 110 points; My goal is to reach between 80-85 points.<br />Attainable: I enjoy being healthy and eating healthy. I think due to laziness and convenience I skip out on healthier alternatives, but really I know that lethargy is no excuse.<br />Realistic: I have had to get in shape and alter my diet in the past to ready myself for athletics. I know it is possible to grasp the reality of my goal.<br />Timely: I have 22 days (Winterim) to accomplish this “changeover” to healthier alternatives. <br />
  3. 3. Reasons to Eat Healthier:<br />To maintain a more balanced diet<br />To feel more energized<br />To lose a few pounds<br />To regain control of what I eat!!!<br />

  13. 13. Routine <br />Initially the day to day was hard because I had to really pay attention to what I was eating. By week 2 my routine became almost natural and at times didn’t think twice about choosing healthier items!<br />Started each day off with a glass of water<br />This change decreased the amount of coffee I drank each morning because it gave me a burst of energy that I would have needed an extra cup of coffee to obtain!<br />Made sure to eat breakfast even if it was something small like a bowl of cereal with fruit<br />I had more energy and snacked much less because I wasn’t as hungry during the day<br />Breakfast helped to decrease lunch size because I wasn’t famished and was okay with eating a light lunch<br />Limited/stopped snacking before and after dinner<br />Helped my appetite during dinner time <br />Helped me fall asleep easier because I didn’t have the extra sugar from snacking<br />
  14. 14. Inhibitors & Enablers <br />Even though I felt that early on the new routine was becoming natural, I did face many instances where it was extremely hard to find motivation. Inhibition took a toll at times for sure, but overall I was motivated enough to surpass the problems.<br />Inhibitors:<br />The Bar/Going Out<br />Limiting beer intake!<br />Not munchin’ on bar foods (fries etc.)<br />Going out to eat<br />Choosing the healthier options<br />Water instead of fountain soda<br />Friend’s without the same goal<br />Enablers:<br />Enjoying eating healthy<br />Anticipating the satisfaction of achieving my goal<br />Supportive friends<br />The New Year and the “Clean Slate” mentality it gives<br />
  15. 15. Results<br />TOTAL POINTS: 84/110<br />Original goal: To earn 80-85/110 points<br />Goal Achieved?<br />YES <br />I am thrilled that I have earned the amount of points I hoped I would, but more importantly I am happy with the way I feel physically and mentally<br />Physically I feel more energized and less hungry during the day<br />Mentally I feel more aware, more confident, and less spacey. I think that my diet change and satisfaction of achieving my goal have played equal roles in this. <br />I do plan on continuing the changes I have made because not only are they beneficial, but they have become a part of my daily routine. I am very happy with myself and satisfied that I have successfully finished something that I started with good intentions.<br />
