Is this an unusual behavior, NO. I am often, well after a few months evaluating exactly where I am on my fitness journey. Why? Because so many times I have fell off.
Falling off is not only not working out but my nutrition of which I have emphasized in the past week and to make certain I have not regressed on past eating disorders.
Not certain how many people know but if you have EVER had an eating disorder it is so easy for it to return especially when you know what causes it. Life happens and as much as we or I try to avoid certain occurrences sometimes they do repeat. The most powerful outcome is if we’re better at handling these occurrences. I am but I must do a mental check to be certain.
I am evaluating the effectiveness of my workouts, how committed I am, if I’m giving it my 100, am I following the proposed workout calendar. If there is a question, I need to figure out why.
My whys sometimes can be timing, tired or just not happy with the workout as it can be too challenging or not challenging enough or I may need a week off. The answer could be either or many I then make the changes. The changes are not mental because I will forget and scream “aww shucks what did I say I was going to do”; ever been there before well if not that day is coming.
I have to make my commitments on paper and implement when and how I will make the change or changes. Then…. In time I do a repeat.
Is it YOUR time to evaluate not just your fitness goals but any and all goals? Let’s meet at the finish line we got this.
