1. an image that is seen in a mirror or on a shiny surface
If we dig into that definition provided by Merriam-Webster Dictionary, WE are the mirror of our 2014 decisions. Who you are today is the result of all the choices and decisions you made throughout this past year.
For some of you that might feel AWESOME! For others it might be a wake up call! Regardless of which boat you're in, 'reflection' is a VERY critical thing to invest some time in. 'Reflection' can remind you of the things you have to be thankful for, the things you have overcome, achievements you be can proud of. It can also remind you of poor decisions, recurring habits, failures.....etc.
A mentor of mine once taught me the importance of reflection; take a few minutes every day to reflect on the day, take a half hour to an hour to reflect on the past week, take a day to reflect on each month, and take a few days (or longer) to reflect on each passing year. This was taught to me in relation to life and business but it also has it's place in fitness.
Why do we log our workouts? So we can review data and reflect. How do we know if we are progressing? By reviewing our results; daily, weekly, monthly, and annually. We can then decide what worked, what didn't work, where should we spend more time, where should we spend less time, what plans do we need to revise, what plans do we stay the course on......etc.
I would like to challenge you to take some time to reflect on your choices for this past year. Are you where you want to be in relation to your fitness goals? If not, what steps do you need to take to achieve your goals moving forward?
The good news is that each day is a new day and we can make the necessary adjustments to get on track.
On Saturday, January 17th from 1-2pm, we will be hosting a workshop that may help you get on the right path to succeed with your 2015 goals!
