small changes

Today’s Words to Live By took years to sink in for me. I used to decide to make a change and try to do a bunch of big things all at once… join a gym with a huge membership package, go on a superΒ restrictiveΒ diet, sign up for a fitness challenge, agree to work with 5 friends in one week, and sign for a 5K. The problem is making too many changes at one time can be a recipe for failure. For me, it was all too much – it became too heavy and too overwhelming to stick to the plans. So today, I want you to remember that small changes can make a big difference. If you’ve decided you want to make a change – whether that be deciding to lose weight or get fit (or both) – know that making small changes will add up over time and make a big difference. Β Consider starting by walking for 20-30 minutes a few times a week and adding more veggies to your diet. It’s a start and you can do it!
