        Goals…we know we need them, or we should know… 
                                                                but how and where to begin?

Goals are extremely important and nothing kills a goal faster than …….

To complete our goals we need to be S.M.A.R.T.

S - Specific. I want to be a healthier person is not a specific goal. 
M - Measurable. I will decrease my daily sugar intake. If you have 2 pops/sodas a day, decrease it to 1 a day for a week.

A- Attainable/ Achievable. You might not be able to go "cold turkey" by cutting out all sugary drinks in a day; however, you might be able to decrease a can of soda a day. 

R- Relevant. Relevant or Purposeful.  Your purpose.  Drinking 1 less soda /can of pop a day can lead to your weight loss and better wellness. Having the same goal as your friend may not be relevant or purposeful to YOUR life.

T- Timely. Every goal needs to have a time table with it. When will you start and end this goal? Your goal might say “I will decrease my soda/pop intake by 5 cans in the next 2 weeks.” If today is January 1.Then the goal completion date should be January 14.
