Getting my body back - Day 36
What is a progress report?
Remember when you were in school and you got a report card to take home to your parents? Perhaps you dreaded taking it home because you knew you really hadn't done your studies to warrant a good grade. If you did study, you'd be happy because you knew that you worked hard, understood the concepts taught and you expected good grades.
Your report card shows your progress during the school year in the same way a progress report tracks your progress at work, business or any project you're working on.
A progress report is a gauge to measuring how close you are to your goal.
Why do you need a progress report?
1) It keeps you focused on where you're going
2) It gets you back on track if you've gone off track
3) It shows where you're lacking and need to zoom in on a particular area
4) It tells you what's not working and what is
5) It helps you make decisions as to if you should continue with a segment of your goal or not or make adjustments or eliminate it altogether.
6) It tells you how far you've come
7) It shows you how far you have to go
A progress report can work for any aspect of your life; whether you're trying to get to your ideal body weight, running a business or be the best parent you could be. The method is transferable to all areas of your life.
Fuelling words: I'll track my progress to ensure that I stay focused and achieve my goal.
Routine: Warm-ups, stretches, aerobics, toning and strength exercises, cool down.
Visualization - keeping focus on my goal; healthy, strong and my ideal body weight and shape.
Deep breathing - relaxes the muscles and sends oxygen to the muscles where exercising alone would not reach.
