Review and reflect back on your journal entries this semester. In this conclusion to the reflective journal, be sure to address these questions and anything else you’d like to add: 1. What have you learned about yourself and how have your attitudes and behaviors changed in terms of health and wellness? 2. How was the SMART goal setting helpful and how will you continue using it? 3. What barriers did you face with your SMART goal and how did you overcome them? My SMART goal requires 6000 strides every day to maintain body fitness. The goal is to reduce ten pounds of weight every week. Through active listening and concentration on the task, I have managed to lose weight. Currently, I am counting my first steps to the accomplishment of the SMART goal. Due to my busy schedule, I will walk the steps only five times a week. The five days are Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Saturday, and Sunday. Therefore, I will take an average of 8400 steps every day to compensate for Monday and Friday. 4200 in the morning and evening, respectively. My muscles are currently relaxed, and the 6000 strides every day does not leave me exhausted as it was when I commenced the exercise. However, there have been some barriers. For instance, at some point, I felt a lack of motivation. There was no motivation to endure the exercise. Additionally, there is sometimes a lack of time because of the busy daily schedules. To overcome the obstacles, I would find my motivation and time for the task through dedication and concentration. Some of my accomplishments are the consumption of salad and fruits in my daily diet, monitoring my sleeping schedules, and taking less sugary foods. The use of a fitness app has enabled me to keep track of my progress. The adjustments I would make to my fitness exercise are using a trainer and focusing on the task to make each day count. Through active listening and concentration, I will be able to accomplish my SMART goal. Maintaining my smart goal has been easier this past week as I have more energy to continue my daily goal of strides a day. Eating healthier has also helped with keeping my energy up thus allowing me to not feel lazy throughout the day. Some modifications I made this week were to lower my amount of strides in a day to 4000 as I am inside more and not able to walk outside because of the cold waether so I use a bike instead, but it does not document my strides as accurate.
