Stop and Stocktake - Are you actioning your intentions ?*

Thursday, 27 August 2015, By Deni Curtis

The year is flying by - we are already into the third quarter of the year! Here in the Ponsonby studio, we are doing a stocktake of our personal health and fitness progress this year. What habits have we developed? Are they moving us towards our goals? Could we do more ? Are we doing too much? What could we do to improve tomorrow, today?

You see, our belief is that rather than waiting until New Years Eve to reflect on our journey, our progress and our results - we should take time to do it right now! With 4 months until the end of the year, there is still plenty of time to bring clarity to what we want to achieve, build a strong plan of attack - and forge ahead! We want to ensure that we finish the year feeling proud and accomplished.


Think back to the beginning of the year. What intentions did you have for the year? What promises did you make to yourself? Why was this year going to be different ? Have you actioned these intentions?


If you would like to bring action to the intentions


With 4 months left until the end of the year - Here are  5 simple questions to ask yourself to quickly take stock of how you are travelling this year:


  1. Am I currently living as the best version of myself? If I continue doing what I am doing, will I be happy with that this time next year?
  2. Do I feel confident that my exercise and nutrition habits are setting me up for long term health outcomes?
  3. Am I remaining in my comfort zone ? Could I challenge myself to find out what I am truly capable of ?
  4. Have I made positive progress since this time last year?
  5. Am I proud of what I have achieved so far this year?


These questions should not leave you feeling disappointed. If you answered 'no' to any of these questions, let it be the fuel that lights your fire to make changes now! If you know you need to make some changes to improve your health and fitness, reaching out to a supportive team of Personal Trainers can be invaluable. Ensuring that you have someone to guide you in bringing clarity to your goals and developing a results focused program to achieve those goals can reawaken you and ensure you are rounding out the year with energy ! Don't put off what you can do right now - make this the year that you really did action your intentions!
