    I was just feeling discouraged today about how long it is taking me to reach my goals. Thanks for reminding me that consistent and continued effort are the key. - 10/23/2008 11:19:19 PM
  • Boy, do I appreciate this article. I was in great shape, but I forgot that I had to get there one step at a time. Now I'm starting over and I have to remember those steps it took. It's going to be one day at a time. - 10/23/2008 9:20:46 PM
  • I agree, though had to learn it the hard way. After starting a running program to do my first ... TRIATHALON... with arthritis and an artificial hip, I completely messed myself up. Now, that I am back on SP, I have started to walk/jog a 20 minute mile instead of going from Couch to 6 min mile with no in between.

    HEY EVEN AUDI'S NEED TO WARM UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! - 10/23/2008 2:06:04 PM
  • I like the thought of starting small cause you cant run till you've walkedand you cant walk till youve learned to crawl. so for now im crawling-so to speak haha - 10/23/2008 12:24:41 PM

    It's true. I started a learn to run program and I started too fast. I had to stop two weeks in and wait a couple of weeks for my calves to stop being sore before I could re-start. - 9/7/2008 8:02:03 PM
    I love this concept ~ love Fast Break kinds of goals ~ have done fast break again several times, it's a gr8 way to refocus, get started again or get started in a new direction or dream :) - 8/30/2008 2:26:38 PM

  • I like this.. I'm starting small...... Thanks - 6/18/2008 9:30:48 AM
    I've learned to celebrate the small accomplishments. If you don't you'll get so discouraged and give up and I have many times. Always appreciate the smallest accomplishments ex. 5lb's lost. - 5/6/2008 2:24:40 PM
  • I'm printing this list out and taping it to my bathroom mirror, my computer screen, my dashboard in my car, my refrigerator... just to remind me to try to take these baby steps every day. Thanks for a great article! - 4/17/2008 11:23:04 AM
