Whats going on currently?

Assess your lifestyle now. How are things going on with your life? Also think about the people around you….

nutrition

Look at the food:

  • Are you eating healthy?
  • Can you eat healthier?
  • Is money for food an issue or worry?
  • Have you tried eating healthy and just didn’t like it? What didn’t you like?
  • Do you feel better or worse when you eat healthy?
  • What does your average meals look like?
  • Do you like to cook or prepare meals?
  • Do you know how much you eat or how much you don’t eat?
  • Is snacking an issue for you?
  • Do you feel like you don’t know what’s healthy and what isn’t?

physical

Look at the physical exercise:

  • Do you workout? If so how often?
  • Do you get into ruts where you workout for 3 days straight and then quit?
  • Do you not know what to do when you step into the gym?
  • Do you like any other sports  or activities? (i.e. running, hiking, walking)
  • Do you feel self-conscious when you walk into the gym?
  • Does exercise hurt?
  • Would it be easier if you had a workout buddy?

emotion

Look at the Emotional/Mental side:

  • Do you think negatively about your body and/or life?
  • Are you depressed? If so why? (work, school, friends, family, weight, love life, social life)
  • Do you eat /not eat when stressed, busy, bored, upset, sad ?
  • Do you crave certain foods? (salt, sweet)
  • Did something happen recently or in the past to cause trauma?  Have you looked for help if so?
  • Are you ready to loose weight? If not why? If yes, why? Create pros and cons.
  • Are you afraid of failure?
  • Do you think its going to be difficult?
  • Are you scared of change and are you intimidated by it?

** IF an injury is present, seek medical help from your primary physician and if there are emotional issues, might want to talk to someone about that too. I know its scary at first, but its worth it not only for your healthy but for your well-being. **
