We can't plan everything in our lives, but today was a classic example of why I need to continue with baby steps. I woke up exhausted, totally stressed with all that's going on right now, and managed to do a few necessary baby steps before heading off to work. I came home with a crippling migraine and cannot describe how good it feels to at least have accomplished those baby steps today! I'm still winning, even if it doesn't feel like it! Woohoo!

Pick an goal & then break it down into baby steps!! Now start with the first baby step....when you have mastered that step & it is a habit for you, take the next baby step.....and so on!!!! You will have achieved your goal & developed healthier habits in the process.....one baby step at a time!!!!
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
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!
