Small Changes Matter

Thursday, September 12, 2013

Lately, the changes I have made to my SP page have been as a result of quotes that make me think. Since the quote I just put up is so hard to read on my page itself, I'll put it here, too:

It's one of those "Yes, I know this, but I need to be reminded of it" kind of quotes. And the fact that this truth was brought to my attention twice in a 24-hour period, I thought that God might be trying to bring it to the forefront for me so that I would, y'know, incorporate it into my life.

It is something I should keep in mind since there are times where I can be an all-or-nothing kind of girl. It's silly, I know, since the small choices (both positive and negative) do add up and can either move me closer to my goal or take me further away. No need to be overwhelmed by it all. Whether it is eating a fruit or veggie instead of a bag of chips or drinking enough water or getting enough sleep, it all helps!

The other place that my life and this wisdom intersected was on an interview that one of my SP idols, Jan-Marie (BOBCATGIRL76), did for SparkRadio. She is truly a rock star, and her story of how she has lost nearly 100 lbs and keeps focused is inspirational. Here's the link to her blog post on her SparkRadio interview:

Jan-Marie also talked about how she made small choices that ended up having a tremendous impact. So cool to see her real-life example of implementing this practice!

What small changes have you made that have positively affected your efforts to become healthier? If you're just starting out, what one thing can you change today?

    THANK YOU SO MUCH! You have no idea what it means when I randomly come across a Sparkfriend's blog to see that I've inspired someone. I SO appreciate your kind words. It means more than you could ever know.

    Add all the small changes and mini steps and you'll get there.
Looking at the big picture is much too overwhelming.
Concentrate on one meal and one workout at a time; keeps down the stress level :)
Keep pushing! Practice makes perfect :)
