Start small

A friend of mine went with me to do cardio this morning.  She’s newer to the healthier eating club and is pretty new to working out.  She has in the past, but she has always tried to go full steam ahead and has always burned out quickly.

This time, she’s excited about baby steps.  She’s staying consistent on her clean eating and is setting realistic goals for her fitness activity.  She’s confident that her patience and her consistency will pay off this time.

I’m so proud of her!

If you are in the same boat as my friend, just remember, you don’t have to try to tackle all the elements of a healthy lifestyle all at once.  Just take it one day at a time and one aspect at a time.  Remember the old saying, “How do you eat an elephant–one bite at a time.”

Consistent effort WILL pay off.  You can do it!
