#FitFabFeb2019 Week 4 – Review, Reassess & Reset

February 24, 2019
Review Reassess Reset

We have reached Week 4 of #FitFabFeb2019 and although we are coming to the end of the series, that doesn’t mean we just stop. As I’ve mentioned many times, being Fit, Healthy, Happy and Active in life is a Lifestyle. That means you live your life this way. It is as natural as cleaning your teeth!

A quick recap

Week 1 was all about Building our Foundations and determining Non-Negotiables.

Week 2 was all about Smart Eating Over 50 and making changes in our diet to eat more foods to increase our fibre and calcium intake.

Week 3 was all about Building Self Belief and developing a Self Care Plan

We also had video workouts provided by Peta from Strong Healthy Women as well as recipes and an interview with Erin O’Neill an Accredited Practising Dietitian.

Review, Reassess & Reset Your Goal

Reviewing Your Goals

It is just as important to include revision of our goals as it is to set them. Sometimes we start off with a goal in mind and then realise along the way that we have changed. Our circumstances may have changed and the goal is no longer applicable or you have just changed your mind.

Reviewing your goals is a way to keep you on track, to define your non-negotiables. Sometimes we can get lost in life and actually forget what our long term goal was. It can get pushed aside.

Reassessing Your Goals

This is a great opportunity to review your progress or where you went off track. Where you are and where you want to be.

It gives you an idea of what you might need to change in order to achieve your goal or in fact, redefine your goal. Reflecting on our progress can keep us motivated to continue. So can reflecting on where we struggled.

Yes, reflecting on our struggles can be a positive exercise. It is an opportunity to learn and think how we might handle a similar situation differently if and when it arises.

Go back to Week 1 -Building our Foundation and determine your Non Negotiables. Are they still the same or do you want to change them?

Reset – Pushing the Reset Button

You have reviewed and reassessed your goals. Now it is time to push that reset button and keep going. Remember this is a lifestyle change and you will probably always be in some kind of work-in-progress. You will achieve your goals along the way and then find more dreams or goals that you want to make a reality. You have the tools so go for it!

    Reviewing and resetting our goals is a great reminder, Sue. For the past month, I have committed to making all meatless dinners when at home and working out daily at the gym or yoga studio. I’ve been fine with this until I have had a break in routine (i.e., vacation, or suddenly called out of town to help with a sick grandchild). Pushing reset is often harder than it sounds!

      I’m inspired by your Meatless dinners Donna as I do need to cut back on red meat. Taking a break can interrupt our well laid plans but remember having a break is just as important for our mental and physical well being. We can always push the reset button! I hope your sick grandchild is okay? Sending my love xx

    It’s been a wonderful month for you Sue – so much work that you’ve put into this and I just wanted to say that I think you’ve done a fantastic job and shared some great resources along the way. I hope that you’ve enjoyed putting it together and that the feedback inspires you to keep doing what you do so well x

      It has been a bit of work Leanne but I’ve enjoyed having a theme and also trying new things with guest interviews. Maybe I’ll take over from Ellen??? LOL:) I decided to have another theme for March although I’m not sure I will be committing to monthly themes all the time but I think the one I have chosen will be a good follow on. Have a great week and soon you will be free!!! xx

    I like the idea of the reset button. Nice post #Lifethisweek

    • Reply Sue Loncaric February 25, 2019 at 16:31

      We can always reset Lydia but I think sometimes we forget that and feel like we are stuck. Have a great week! xx

  • Reply Amy February 25, 2019 at 09:43

    I have to push the reset button because I was vacationing with my kids for a week last week. Now I need to get back on track.

    • Reply Sue Loncaric February 25, 2019 at 16:32

      Spending time with your kids would have been great Amy and we can always get back on track. There is nothing like spending time with family and making memories though, is there?

  • Reply Joanne Tracey February 25, 2019 at 14:59

    Review and reset – yes! As you know I’m out of routine – and will be for the next few weeks & I guess that’s ok… On a side note – thanks for all the inspiration over February. You’ve done a fabulous job.

    • Reply Sue Loncaric February 25, 2019 at 16:33

      Hi Jo, you do sound stressed and that isn’t like you at all. I’m pleased you enjoyed the theme over February and thank you for your lovely words. I’ve decided on a theme for March – oh no, there is no stopping me now! Have a beautiful week and take care of yourself. xx

  • Reply Debbie February 25, 2019 at 20:23

    You are always full of such great advice Sue and I can only imagine the amount of work needed to keep it all going! Well done you 🙂 I love the idea of a reset button too . Thanks for all you give us. #lifethisweek

    • Reply Sue Loncaric February 27, 2019 at 10:04

      Thanks Deb! I know sometimes I wonder why I start projects especially as I’m a ‘boot and all’ kinda girl. Then I receive supportive and positive comments and it reminds me why I love doing it. Have a great week and watch out for #MakingMarchMeaningful xx

  • Reply Candi Randolph February 25, 2019 at 21:26

    Reviewing our goals is so important, wonderful advice, Sue, and so much healthier than just giving up on them. It allows us to be kind to ourselves and acknowledge that we sometimes have to adjust to what life throws at us. Thanks for a great month of encouragement and advice! xo

    • Reply Sue Loncaric February 27, 2019 at 10:06

      Hi Candi, it can be easy to give up if we don’t see progress. Sometimes though there are valid reasons why things aren’t working and by reviewing and reassessing we can understand that is isn’t always our fault. We can reset and then get back on track. Thanks for your supportive comments and I’m pleased you enjoyed the series. xx

    Reviewing and resetting is so important. Although I’m out of my regular routine and away from home, I’ve still been able to hit my goals (and even exceed them!) Thanks for the motivation!

    • Reply Sue Loncaric February 27, 2019 at 10:06

      Oh that is excellent Sammie because it is usually when we step out of routine that our goals take a back seat. Great to hear and enjoy your time away – I’m assuming it is a holiday??? x

  • Reply Natalie February 26, 2019 at 05:31

    Hi Sue – Reviewing and resetting our goals are necessary from time to time as changes occur to us and our life routine. You’ve done a great job with your theme for February. I’m looking forward to your theme in March. Have a beautiful week! #lifethisweek

    • Reply Sue Loncaric February 27, 2019 at 10:08

      Thank you for your kind and encouraging words, Natalie. It has been a commitment from me that is for sure but I’m pleased to have received positive feedback and comments where people have felt inspired or motivated by what I have written. Have a great week and I hope you will join me for #MakingMarchMeaningful xx

    It’s so true that, when you have a lot to do, it’s best to hold yourself accountable.

    • Reply Sue Loncaric March 3, 2019 at 16:07

      Hi Betty, thanks for visiting to leave a comment. We do need to hold ourselves accountable if we want to achieve our goals. By reviewing and reassessing we are constantly having our goals front and centre so it is easier to keep on track. x
