WEEK 7: Review our past week of 21NLS and plan for weeks ahead!
While our challenge is set for 21 weeks, healthy living is for life. It’s about creating this healthy lifestyle that will sustain itself in the long-term, no matter what happens. 21NLS is meant as a trigger to help you jump-start your healthy living goals, via a combined platform where different individuals all around the world get together to achieve a healthier lifestyle.
Some people might face the problem where they face success with a renewed lifestyle for 1-2 weeks, then revert back to their old habits and behaviors after that. That’s because they see it as a short-term goal rather than a lifelong journey.
It’s normal to have disruptions in our diet, exercise and lifestyle goals. If you feel you have “fallen” off the wagon in the past few weeks, I want to let you know that it doesn’t matter. If you haven’t been able to catch up on some of the tasks, I want to let you know that it doesn’t matter either. Beating yourself up isn’t going to help you live a healthier life. The question isn’t about whether you met the target for the WEEK or not. The question is whether you have learned from what happened so that you’ll get better at doing it.
The question is whether you know what are the key actions to take to succeed in your plan moving forward.
So this week, we’re going to review our past week of 21NLS and plan for week 2 ahead!
Step 1 – Fall in line with the 21NLS Tasks

- On a scale of 1-10, how satisfied are you with your health and fitness for the past week (including your diet, fitness and lifestyle goals)? Why?
- Were there any times where you fell off track in your healthy lifestyle goals?
- Lifestyle (Waking/Sleeping times, Other habits like meditation)
- If so, what happened during those times that took you off track? What can you learn from the incidences?
- What can you do differently moving forward in living an even healthier life?
Step 3 – Set Your Week 2 Action Plan for 21NLS!
