Love Yourself Fitness Challenge: Self-Check Time

Written by Angela Atkinson

Love YourselfDear Love Yourself Challengers,

As you journey through our 60-day fitness challenge, I invite you to pause for a moment and do what I call a self-check.

We’re going to get to know ourselves a little better, and we’re going to start identifying the areas we’re going to focus on during this challenge.

This is where our individual paths will begin to form–this is where the work begins. Are you ready?

Today’s Bliss Mission: Know Yourself

Pull out a journal (or open a blog post/Word doc) and jot down your thoughts. Save this as we may refer back to it later during the challenge. We’ll do at least one self-check per week.

This week, we’re going to take emotional stock of our self-perceptions versus how others see us.

During the challenge, we will not only focus on losing weight and getting fit, but we’ll also work on figuring out WHY we are carrying these extra pounds. Then, we’ll make moves toward resolving or better dealing with the issues or concerns that may have contributed to our habits.

Ask yourself these questions.

1. How well do I really know myself right this moment? Who would I say that I am? Who would others say I am?

2. What areas in my life are working for me, right now?

3. What areas do I need to work? What could change in my world that would improve my self and my life?

Try this exercise.

Ask someone in your life who knows you really well to describe you as they would to a stranger.  What are you like? What do you do? Are you successful? How does this person see you, etc.? This can be done in person or by email, and if you can, get a few different opinions.

Read or listen to the opinions, taking note of the descriptive words and general sense of character that comes through in the description. At first, try to keep your personal feelings out if it (it will be tough). Just hear/read them and digest them for what they are.

Take a m0ment to reflect on the opinions presented. Do they reflect the person you want to be? Are you satisfied by the perception others have about you, or do you wish you could change it a bit? Does it really matter what people think? How does hearing/reading what others think affect your opinion of yourself?

The Narcissist Underestimates You

Narcissists underestimate you for many reasons…remember this: if someone underestimates you, it actually offers you a rather significant advantage. If they think you’re not capable of something and you do it anyway, there is far less resistance involved, if that makes sense.
