A very long time ago, I learned about SMART Goals in taekwondo class. It helped me break down my larger goals into smaller goals and helped make them attainable.  So here are my Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Results-oriented, and Trackable goals.

1. Break a 2:10 half marathon.
This goal is simple and specific to getting moved into earlier corrals for next year at the Princess Half. I can definitely be measured and tracked by a race performance and my training. 

2. Drink more water.
This is going to be the one I struggle with. I strongly dislike the taste of plain water.  I need my water to be flavored or ice cold.  Luckily, I'm a Nuunbassador so I can get Nuun products to enhance my water without adding any extra sugar.  

3. Get back into figure skating.
Once I get into a place where I don't have a car payment, I intend to put some money aside for skating lessons, paying down the student loans, and possibly a house payment. I really miss skating for myself. I love coaching, but there is nothing like the feeling of learning something new and challenging oneself. 

4. Eating healthier.
So most days I rush around and grab a protein bar for breakfast and something stupid for lunch. I really want to develop better eating habits so I lose weight and  perform better in all aspects of my life.
That means buying the right foods and doing meal preparation earlier.

Those are my four small, SMART Goals for the year.
