Updated: Oct 8, 2021

SMART is an acronym to help you develop a realistic and achievable goal. By understanding where you want to end up you can develop a plan to get you there.  


  1. Specific

  2. Measurable

  3. Achievable

  4. Relevant

  5. Timed

SMART example

  1. Specific: Complete a 5k

  2. Measurable: 5k=3.1 miles, finish the race

  3. Achievable: yes, this is realistic, I can walk, jog, run

  4. Relevant: this will support my exercise and weight loss

  5. Timed: Sign up for a race so there is a specific date

As you think about your goals remember to be SMART!
