|My mom at Natural Bridges State Park, Santa Cruz|
But, even though my mom and I haven't spent much time together during my early adult years, I was stunned to see how many of my mom's 'habits' I have picked up. Sadly, it was often the things that were starting to get on my nerves that I recognized my own behavior in what she was doing! Things like having multiple drinks at once (hmmm, do I want water or coffee or tea?? I know, I'll have all three!!) to making several trips to the cupboard to grab just a few more almonds or crackers. It's funny that we can so easily see other people's 'bad habits' before we see our own...even when they are the same.

I honestly feel that spending time with my mom has added some clarity to my life. And not just for my health and fitness goals...but it has answered some questions about my upbringing, habits, likes, dislikes, and future. And now, I'm off to review my goals and Bucket List!
