Countdown to the Challenge #6

Friday, February 08, 2013

List YOUR reasons/excuses on why YOUR diets and exercise plans have not been well executed in the past. OK that might be too long a list, so give 3 or 4 reasons and for each write a strategy that will keep you on track for 8 weeks. Let's learn from our past behaviors and make this our best Challenge ever!

Lets see. Usually it all comes down to one key thing. I give up on myself. I don't see any results, and start to get frustrated. Then I decide why not take a day off. It won't make any difference. Then it becomes two. Then three. You get the picture.

I also tend to only do "good enough". I don't push myself very often. I know I can't push to my limits all the time, but I need to push farther more often.

So what will keep me on track for these 8 weeks? Well, part of it will be that I don't want to let my team down. Regardless of what the scale says, I can measure my success by simply being able to track some fitness. Or tracking my foods. Whatever I need to do to help the team out.

    Wow - I haven't looked at this assignment yet, mine could get long too.

    What team is this challenge on?

    My diets/exercise plans fail because I don't believe in myself. I assume I will fail anyway, so why tell anybody my plans, why follow through, why put myself through the misery of 'performance expectations' when I know that A) nobody is really supporting me and B) it is so much stress to be in the limelight for any reason that that right there is a really valid reason to me, to not even start something.
    That said, my exercise is fine. That I can do, love to do, and heaven help the obstacles that try to get in my way.
    Dieting.........uh.....not so good.
