New Years Resolutions

It’s that time of the year again when we all seem to love making New Year Resolutions! I love the idea of improving myself but I am not so excited when it comes to the work involved. Apparently I am not the only one. According to a study done by the time management group Franklin Covey,

Four out of five people who make New Year’s resolutions tonight will eventually break them. In fact, a third won’t even make it to the end of January.

So how do we get to the point where we make and keep our New Year Resolutions?
In my exercise class the instructor gave us a handout titled “What are S.M.A.R.T Goals?” I am going to share with you what the handout said because I think it will help me and you with keeping our New Years Resolutions.

What are S.M.A.R.T. goals?

These are Specific, Measureable, Attainable, Realistic and Time-bound goals.

Specific: What are you trying to achieve? Why? How long to achieve this goal? How are you going to do it?

Measureable: Choose a goal with measurable progress (pounds, inches, etc.) so you can see change, overcome setbacks, keep on track and stick to your goal.

Attainable: You ensure that your goal is attainable by considering resources, time available, equipment, professional help. Set your goal as a challenge, but not too far out or too short, so you can succeed.

Realistic: Ideally, you may want to return to your high school weight, but you know losing 30 pounds might be unrealistic. You know that 10 lbs. lighter you’ll feel much better and more easily fit into your favorite pair of jeans.

Time-bound: Set specific start and finish dates to stay focused. Set interim dates for measurements to check on your progress. Set up a reward system for milestones: things like a massage, a movie, new workout shoes or clothes or whatever makes you motivated and happy.

Specific:
How much weight?
How many inches?

Measureable:
Starting weight:
Measurement:

Attainable: What do I need to do to succeed

Realistic:

Time bound:
Start date:
End date:

This year I am going to try making my New Years Resolutions following the S.M.A.R.T. goal ideas. Hopefully they will help me make and KEEP my resolutions.

Instructions
Fish
  1. Preheat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare a baking dish with cooking spray. Or get your airfryer ready. I love to cook in the air fryer whenever possible.
  2. Mix all the ingredients for the fish together except for the fish in a ziplock bag. Mix well and add the fish. Let marinate in the fridge for 15 minutes.
  3. Drain off the marinate and put the fish in the prepared baking dish. Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes or in the air fryer on 400 degrees for 10-15 minutes, until the fish is flaky. (The air fryer gives it a crispier outside).
Filling
  1. Mix all of the filling ingredients together. Set aside.
Sauce
  1. Add all the sauce ingredients together. Mix well. Set aside.
Put it all together
  1. If you would like to you can warm the tortillas first in a skillet. The crepes if using won't need to be warmed because they are so thin and light.
  2. Lay the crepe or tortilla on a plate. Place 1/4 the fish, 1/4 the filling and drizzle with 1/4 of the sauce. Roll up or fold in half. Continue on with the rest of the crepes or tortillas. Serve warm
