Doing stuff that’s hazardous to your fitness can be downright criminal. We’ve all been there, right? For example, here’s a throwback pic of too much Greedyfication: chocolate cake & pepperoni pizza combo. Dang.
WHY 7 QUESTIONS?
Although I’m posing these 7 Questions to you (and to myself) on a Monday, it’s best to ask yourself the questions before the start of a new week, preferably on the weekend prior. I came up with the questions as a means of taking a closer look at my own situation — to find out how I can make improvements and avoid getting stuck in a rut that I never saw coming (yes, that’s happened recently).
But these questions aren’t just about fitness. You can also apply them to work, household, other personal goals, relationships, etc. One of my non-fitness goals is to run a more efficient household. Greater efficiency on the homefront impacts my family in a positive way and ultimately paves the way for me to focus more on myself without being drawn away to put out unnecessary “fires” due to an out of order home.
Look over the questions and consider your answers:
ALERT: Question #7 is highly suspicious. I don’t know how it got there. A full investigation is underway.
- In what areas did I fall short last week?
- Why did I fall short? (be as specific as possible)
- What will I do to improve upon last week’s low points?
- What are my goals for the coming week?
- How will I prepare for the week to set myself up for success?
- What specific actions will I commit to in order to meet the week’s goals?
- Can I haz a slice(s) of pie? YES.
If you find that you fell short due to outside circumstances beyond your control, please don’t sweat it. The rest comes down to PLANNING, PRIORITIES, and pushing through the temptation to avoid taking ACTION.
Don’t skim over these questions and then forget about it. Get serious. Make it happen for yourself this week. You can do it.
