Thumbs up Wonderful, motivating thread on Maintainers Forum

I lurk on the Maintainer's Forum from time to time for inspiration. They have a wonderfully motivating thread going on now "maintenance habits you do right" or something like that. I'll pause while everyone finds and reads it..................................it's easy to see why these folks have been successful!!

OK, you don't have to be a maintainer to do SOME things right:

I eat a healthy breakfast EVERY day.
I plan my meals and take a healthy lunch to work.
I am consistent in my exercising.

What do you do right?

I'm really good at exercise. It stalls out my progress frequently, but I make quick gains in fitness.

I serve my family protein, veggies, carb very nearly every single night for dinner.

I love to try new things, even foods I didn't like five years ago. That's how I discovered I DO love cabbage!

I am motivated by reading and incorporated that through audio books when I walk.

I gathered my family around me to take on this journey together.

I am a morning person so that's when I workout. I've learned that if it doesn't happen in the morning, it doesn't happen.

I find joy in the little things.
