(Regarding a weight plateau)  I am going to capitalize on this phase because I know that these things sort of “wave in” and “wave out” and there will come a time in my future when I may have to put it in neutral for a little bit until it passes.  It’s nice to have a year’s worth of history so that I will recognize it for what that is and be able to respect it without going “off plan.”

Insight that is learned through continued practice is life-changing.  We all have it in us – genius!
