Avoid making the same diet mistakes twice by seeking feedback from a professional. If your budget allows, enlist an R.D. for a onetime assessment of your food log. Same with fitness: Hire a personal trainer for a session or two and adopt some new exercises while perfecting your form. A qualified mentor can determine where you are falling short and suggest exactly how to improve. Sure, it can be a blow to the ego-and maybe the wallet-to discover the error of your ways, but it will accelerate your growth tremendously.
“To be challenged is good. The challenged life may be the best therapist.”
