On a site like this, with so many running and doing lots of exercises, it's easy to get caught up in the excitement. However, it can lead to a let-down if it is not your own program. Work at your own pace and style. Do not worry about what everyone else is doing.

Learn from Mistakes, Forgive Yourself, Take Baby Steps
Mistakes will happen. Recognize your mistakes, & figure out how to take corrective measures. Take baby steps to learn from mistakes; forgive yourself; and move forward as slowly or as quickly as you can. Love yourself first, and you will be able to take care of your loved ones for a longer time.
Take baby steps at your own pace & NOT at someone else's pace. Practice making healthy choices every day, and one day you will not have to remember to make a healthy choice: it will be a new habit that you have practiced. Be the "tortoise" in your race to a long-lasting and healthy lifestyle!
