Baby Steps In Progress Are Starting To Add Up!

Thursday, April 18, 2013

On Wednesday, I rode 10.35 miles in 65 minutes. Today I rode 10.57 miles in 65 minutes. That may not seem like a whole lot but keep in mind that 2 weeks ago I struggled to ride 5 miles in 65 minutes. Looking at the big picture to see the progress I've made over time really brings how far I've come, right under my nose.

The same is true for all of the other situations I've encountered since I became disabled and gained weight. You have to start somewhere in order to start making progress. "So what if it takes a long time," I tell myself. "There isn't anything more important to me than regaining my health and mobility. That whole process as my job." I know now that I'm worth all of the effort it takes for me to get and stay healthy.

There are times when I feel that my progress isn't moving fast enough; especially when my weight loss hits a major plateau or I experience an injury and have to retrain my muscles. What comes to mind here is that "good things come in small packages". Starting small and keeping my progress slow,steady and going in a positive direction is the healthy approach all the way around. Baby steps in progress add up to big changes and they are starting to add up in an exciting way!
