At any point in your program it is easy to get caught up in the habits you've built up. Always consider what a relevant and doable action step is that will move you toward your goal and then start it. You will find that little steps bring little successes and that's how you build to the bigger results!
It's seems silly that I try to accomplish huge goals with one action step. Learning to consistently balance my food intake took about 3 months , building up to 60 minutes of cardio took a month. I manage to limit my unreasonable expectations by looking at just another step forward!

We've all heard the saying, "Two steps forward, one step back." But it really just emphasises the negative. It's like saying, "We can't have any progress without losing momentum." Why not turn it around and say "One step back, two steps forward." Now it's a positive encouragment. It now means, "I may take a step backward, but when I do I'm going to take two steps forward."
