Earlier this week Innovative Results set out on a SMART Goal mission 🙂
A mission that will benefit not only Innovative Results clients, but all of you in our extended family of readers!
This year is the year WE “ambush the Holidays”, and fight Holiday weight gain.
If you have not yet read Don’t Let the Holidays Pack on the Pounds This Year we recommend you do so now.
After reading the IR Blog above, you will have a great outline of how answering a few questions for YOURSELF will help hold you accountable, and help you find support in your peers by sharing your SMART Goal. Below is an incredible example of how to use this blog to get you to your goals.
Jared Charity started training at the Innovative Results Facility in May 2014. Since his first day, it has been Jared’s devotion to his routine and commitment to his goals that has brought him incredible fitness results. The IR Family is thrilled to be Jared’s accountability partner in his journey to success!
What is the best thing you do for improving your quality of life with Innovative Results?
Workout at IR holds me accountable to working out! It provides me with a unique team environment I have not been able to find since I stopped playing football in college. The staff at IR is always willing to help you out in anyway possible with nutrition and exercise advice.
How do you manage your sleep, nutrition, stress level, and hydration?
I have started getting up early every morning to workout. This helps me get to sleep better at night. I try and get at least 8 hours of sleep, but that doesn’t always seem to happen. I use the myfitnesspal app to manage my nutrition intake and a garmin vivofit band to track my fitness output. I stopped drinking anything, but water. Occasionally I will have a monster absolute 0 when I need a little something extra. I manage my stress through my workouts. Working out allows me to clear my mind and focus on myself.
Why is improving your quality of life important to you?
Improving my quality of line if important to me because I want to to live a long healthy life. I come from a family that has struggled with weight. My mother, sister and aunts have all had gastric bypass to help them loose weight, but I want to do it without surgery. I want to be around to see any kids I have in the future grow up and be able to play with them.
It is obvious from the first moment you trained at Innovative Results that we believe in you, and we believe in your improved quality of life. I want to help you on a deeper level with all aspects of your health:
· Nutrition Plan
· Hydration Plan
· Stress Reduction
· Sleep Plan and Circadian Rhythms
· Goal Setting
· SMR and Stretches
· Outside Workouts
This is Jared’s response:
I want to try and get down to 275 or under. I know with my build anything over that will be a struggle. I would also like to tone down and loose the “moobs” and love handles that I have had forever.
I will track my weight using myfitnesspal. I weigh myself once a week. I also track various measurements, like waist size and chest size, to see if these are dropping as well.
I would like to think that a weight of 275 is obtainable for me. I am also pushing myself to get at least 45-60 min of cardio in each day.
This fits perfectly in my life currently. However, 2 months ago I could not have said the same thing. Since I started at IR I have seen a positive change in myself for the better and this change has been spilling into other various aspects of my life outside of IR
I would like to see these results ASAP, but know that baby steps will be needed. I have my wedding coming up in March of 2015 and would like to be at my target weight or at least very close to it by then.
Send us your SMART Goal, and IR is overjoyed to walk this out with you over the next few months!
