Along this journey it is easy to keep on trucking but it is equally important to stop at a point and do a self evaluation of your journey. Everything from what you did right, where you want to improve, what have you learned, to even how you responded to adversity. Honest self evaluations will help you get a feel where you are at in this journey whether you need to make minor adjustments or just keep trucking along. So here are a few evaluation questions and tests you can give yourself (and if any of you have any more good question post below and we can add them to the op). List all the positive things you have done whether it be cutting your soda intake in half, eating less fast food, preparing more meals, or working out more. It is easy to get lost in the journey when at times you do not feel like you made any progress. Listing the positive things will help encourage you to continue on doing and improving on your positives. Areas you would like to improve whether it be go to the gym more, eat less processed foods, drink more water, etc. We always want to strive to improve as continual improvements, even the minute ones, will help you get better. Where are you at concerning your short term goals? If you listed a few short term goals take this time to see which goals you met and which ones you didn't and of the ones you failed to meet ask yourself why you failed to meet your goal. Just because you failed to meet some short term goals do not mean you are off track it could be those short term goals may have needed to be intermediate goals as they take time to get there. But goals such as eating more vegetables, if you failed to meet those goals then take the time to find out what kept you from meeting those goals and find ways to put yourself in a better situation to meet those goals Where are you at with your long term goals? Is the path you are on steering you toward that goal, if not then take the time to figure out why. There is no such thing as a magic pill if you want results you are going to have to work for it. You and either achieve by making a thousand cuts or die by a thousand cuts.
