Baby Steps

This is important.

If you want to get healthier, the best thing to do is take baby steps. Don’t attempt to make radical changes to your diet or lifestyle overnight. Small, gradual changes bring lasting results.

Do one thing each week to push yourself. Once your taste buds adjust, you’re ready to push them a little further. Once your workout gets a little easier, go a little harder.

You can’t lose 50 lbs overnight. And you can’t suddenly wake up and run a marathon without training. So you can’t go from eating pizza and cookies to suddenly eating spirulina and kale night and day. It won’t stick. It’s a process and it can be fun to challenge yourself.

So be patient. Embrace the journey. Going slow means going the distance.
