Today is my birthday and that makes it a perfect day to reflect. We need to take the time to thoughtfully look at our own condition on a regular basis. This isn't a time to chastise ourselves, but a time to take note of everything that we are doing right and everything that we are doing better. there is nothing more motivating than success--and we are all doing some things right. As is true with any learning, we start where we are at and we scaffold new learning and achievements. Celebrate!
Look at what you are eating and drinking. Look at any changes in activity and fitness. Look at your habits and hobbies. Look at your moods and attitudes. Look at your health. Look at your clothing. Look at what has become new and improved habits. Oh yeah, you can look at the scale too.
