How to Take Small Steps Toward Your Goal
You may have celebrated a Jewish holiday and can be feeling overwhelmed by the enormity of what you have to tackle to meet your weight goals. Take a breath: inhale... exhale...
It does NOT have to be a daunting journey- whether you celebrated or not.
Small steps can lead to a good cycle of success breeding success as you establish habits, hit mini-goals, and note your progress. This increases confidence and motivation, making it easier to stay in it for the long haul.
How to Take Small Steps to Your Goal
Step 1: Break it down. Instead of worrying about what you might do next year, you can check off the list things you can do today or this week. Things you can do today or soon, along with things you do repeatedly, such as choosing water instead of juice, are good small steps to consider.
Step 2: Track your progress. Track your progress to see how well you are doing and where you might improve, not JUST with a number on the scale.
Step 3: Modify as needed. Assess your progress regularly, such as weekly or a couple of times a month, and modify your goal and path to it as needed. Consider it a re-routing process, and not a failure.
