Learning to Think Objectively
It may feel like it, but you did NOT pack on those pounds overnight.
It took many days, weeks, months or years of consistent poor choices for your health.
There are some exceptions to this, and those are for the people suffering from a medical disease, disabilities or pharmacological causes of weight gain.
But for the rest of the world, it’s time to look at your choices.
It’s time to take a step back and give yourself a truly objective evaluation.
Objective Evaluations mean that your answers can be supported by factual data, or PROOF, credible documentation.
Are you REALLY being consistent with your exercise?
Objective Questions: Where’s your proof? How many days did you go to the gym or participate in at least 30 minutes of moderate activity this week? This month? This year?
Are you REALLY eating healthy?
Objective Questions: Are you tracking your calories DAILY? Are you tracking them CORRECTLY? Are you planning your meals BEFORE you eat them to make sure they stay balanced?
These are just a few examples of how to perform an Objective Evaluation on yourself to see where the problem(s) lie.
If there is no data, how can you prove that what you’ve been doing/not doing has or has NOT been working for you?
Maybe there’s a flaw in the process...
It’s kind of like math class where you had to “show your work”.
As much as our student selves HATED this, it is important to understand the process of how you came to your answer.
