Over and above having achieved my first SMART goal of the year, I have also cycled just over 1000 kilometres, mostly to and from work. As you can imagine, I'm getting pretty fit and am experiencing some of the benefits that getting into decent shape can bring.
Perhaps, the biggest payoff from having made significant changes to my lifestyle -- which I could sum up with the simple phrase: move more and eat better -- is that I will be wearing my favorite tailored suit that I haven't been able to wear for ten years as I attend my step-daughter officially being called to the Bar, the culmination of her many years of hard work to get through law school.
I think that we both can be proud of what we have accomplished. I also know that to reach my destination of being fit and slim I too will need to sustain my efforts and show perseverance in order to achieve a most worthy goal.
