{Motivation Monday}

I often see people expect too much of themselves when starting new exercise endeavors. People try to run a mile or two, and feel terrible and never want to run again-and don’t. Instead start with shorter distances, sets, weights. Don’t increase the chance you’ll hate something that is already new and challenging. Once you are committed, it is much easier to continue to push yourself.

Dont-Try-to-Overhaul-Your-Life-Overnight

As I made goals for myself this year, I’ve really focused on the above quote-making small changes at a time. Sudden changes can feel difficult and increase the chance of not continuing the positive change(s). Small steps at a time seem so much more manageable. Whatever you might be working towards, remember small things can add up to big things over time. Doing something a few times a week can quickly become a daily habit and a way of life!

Happy Monday!
