This year instead of a resolution, aim to set achievable goals.

By Heart Healthy Tips
Some experts state that up to 80% of resolutions fail by the end of February! Let that sink in a minute.

Now, think back to the times that a resolution was over almost before it had begun. This year instead of a resolution, aim to set achievable goals.

A goal is a defined and measurable version of a resolution. Having a well defined goal provides a way to stay on track even through tough obstacles. Setting small achievable healthy eating goals can provide successful changes at the beginning of each year instead of another busted resolution.

Having a mindset of "achieving goals" instead of "sticking to resolutions" can help develop a solid plan. A plan provides a way of achieving success instead of blindly trying to stick to a resolution based on will power alone.

These are some steps to heathy eating goal setting:

No changes will come easily and success is difficult unless there is a willingness to change. All the fad diets and eating trends won't make a difference until there is a real commitment to healthy eating. First make the decision to have a healthier lifestyle and then commit to following through with new habits.

Having a goal is great but having a broad suggestion of a goal is where many fall down. "Eating Healthy" might sound great but what does it mean? Being specific and focusing on individual aspects of healthy eating can increase success. Setting a calorie target, cutting out unhealthy fats, or eating 5 servings of fruit and vegetables are all more specific goals that will build towards and overall Heart Healthy lifestyle.

Physically writing down a goal and keeping it where it is seen daily is a huge step toward success. The daily reminder of your commitment will be a huge motivator when less healthy options show themselves.

It’s okay to have no idea how to accomplish a goal. Having belief that you can achieve that goal is what really counts and dedication to the goal is how to get there. Being dedicated to achieving a goal will provide the motivation to seek out the knowledge required. Knowing how to eat for a healthy lifestyle will come if dedication to eating for a healthy lifestyle is already there.

Goals are not goals if they are not able to be measured. Having the ability to achieve something is only available if there is a way to measure that achievement. Think back to the specific goals, they are all defined to be measurable. With a goal that is measurable there is also the ability to track the progress towards that goal. A reasonable timeline for goals, and measure progress is a huge key to success in hitting that goal.

On the road to achieving goals there will be challenges. Challenges can last a day or a week or just one meal. Treat momentary slips on the road to achieving goals as a setback, not as a failure. Having the mindset of not giving up will allow for continuous movement towards goals and eventual success.
