Think Small for Better Health!

The best way to fit exercise into your life on a regular basis is to 
not bite off more than you can chew.
Start small.
Instead of overhaul.
I know this might not be what you are thinking 
will get you where you want to go, 
but trust me the key to success
will come one bite at a time. 
Success is not found in the gobbling.

than one long run. Or none.
*Stretching for 5 minutes (perhaps at your desk?) 
three days this week will be better than jumping into that 
Power Yoga class you keep hearing about
but is not convenient enough to squeeze in regularly.
Goals are attained when we are able to build gradually, 
with consistency over time.

“Any act often repeated soon forms a habit; 
and habit allowed, steadily gains in strength.”
Tyron Edwards

Think small!

No worries, start back up. Don’t catch up, unless you are feeling super motivated, just jump in today! 
You wish you would have chosen the Be Gentle With Me Track instead of The Core and More Challenge? Switch! No questions asked. How about this, just record what you are doing on the Blank Journal! Something is better than nothing!
