Vision Statement: (What you want your life to look like in 30 years)
a. In 30 years I want my life to be organized and going somewhere. I want to be able to function like a twenty something year old but have gained a stronger sense of self-love and appreciation for my body. I want to have a schedule that is set in stone that has a daily workout routine incorporated in it, like yoga or just a brisk walk in the morning.

Personal promises (Behavior change)
Briefly describe your long term goals. Goals should be S.M.A.R.T. (specific, measurable, action-oriented, realistic, and timely). They should relate back to your vision.
a. My long-term goals all in twine with my main goal of losing weight. My goal is to lose 30 lbs of

Describe the theory.
a. The theory I choose was the Social Cognitive Theory that is controlled by three factors: the environment, people, and behavior. The interaction between these three factors is validated by reciprocal determinism, and you use this construct by considering multiple ways to change a behavior.
b. Explain why you selected the theory.
a. I selected this theory because it was the only theory that considers maintaining this new behavior and SCT’s goal is to regulate behavior through control and reinforcement to attain a goal-directed behavior change that can be maintained over time.
c. Briefly describe how the theory could be applied to the specific behavior change.
a. This theory can be applied to my specific behavior change because one of the key concepts is self-efficacy which is the most important determinant of a behavioral change and so I can breakdown behavior change into small measureable steps and then I should celebrate small success that occur on the way to a larger behavior change. That would increase my self-efficacy, which in return could push me more towards completing my larger goal of losing weight.

Have you been successful? Yes/No and why.
a. I was not successful but I did attempt a couple of times to actually start a daily workout routine. I wasn’t successful because I would just say things like, “I was active all day at work and I did sweat so that can just be my workout” or just believing that I was so worn out from work that I deserve to just relax and laydown watching a movie.
b. Include barriers
a. I had psychological barriers because I would just constantly say that I will start tomorrow as well I would just tell myself that I’m happy where I am at the moment but in reality I wasn’t but thinking that I was content allowed me to not feel guilty about not working out that day. I
c. Predisposing, reinforcing or enabling factors.
a. A predisposing factor would be my knowledge of working out and eating healthy, because I lost 100+ pounds doing so a few years back but I believe that since I have done it once that I can do it again therefore I don’t really take losing more weight at the moment as serious as I really want to. As well my reinforcing factors would be my support team that I have from my family and friends and the reward of feeling like I’m benefiting my body for the long run.
