Having a challenging time getting back on track? Remember baby steps. When struggling with something, exercise, water, healthy eating, go back a step or three. Try to establish good habits again, no matter how small they seem, and build on your successes. It won't be long before you're back on track again.

Failing to make 10,000 steps a day was a bit discouraging until I realized that I hadn't attained a smaller goal of 5,000 steps. I reset my pedometer from 10,000 to 5,000 and four days after reaching 5,000 steps consecutively, I hit 10,000!!! Bottom line is: I try not to make my goals unattainable.
A pedometer is all that's necessary here, and remembering that if giant steps aren't working, there's always the baby steps to fall back on!
Baby Steps work.....small steps, one at a time!!!! Pick one small goal & work on that till you achieve it & make it a habit!!!! THEN......baby step 2.....pick another small goal & work on that one until you achieve it & make it a habit!! Pretty soon you will be well on your journey to a healthier lifestyle!!!! REMEMBER.....sometimes it is one step back & 2 steps forward.......BABY STEPS!!!!!!!9 Hugzz ~ Jae247
