Are you seeing the results you want? Do you have reasonable expectations for yourself? Can you find a few ways to be smarter about how hard you work? Always. All of us can improve and get better results. Give yourself credit and respect your progress. Be enthusiastic on the 1st and 2nd and make the most of your exercise time. Be persistent on the 4th. What's more important than your health? Not much. The 5th, 6th, and 7th are more like playtime than competition time. Go outside, be sociable, and enjoy the sunshine and fresh air. If patience is thin on the 10th, have a fun workout. Turn up the music. Move more. Respect your stamina, muscles, and joints. You are getting stronger, inside and out. Get back outside on the 12th and 13th and give your dog, and yourself, a longer walk. Smile and let people chat you up. The 16th may have mixed messages, but the 17th will be slow, steady, and smart. That's you. Tune up your expectations on the 23rd, push yourself less but put in the time. Gradual progress is best. You don't have to keep up with anyone on the 26th. You're doing a fantastic job, for you!
