The beginning of the year so many people decide to make a change. They make a New Years Resolution. But then sometime is February or March, many find that their resolve has started to fade. I'm not going to lie. Change is hard. It doesn't matter if you are adding exercise, removing sugar or eating more vegetables. Change is hard. So, first... Why did you make that Resolution in the first place? Are you going on a trip, getting married or wanting to play with those kids or Grandkids? Could it be that you have health issues and losing weight, eating different or exercise will be what makes the difference? Is it that you don't like the way you look or feel and are ready? Whatever your reason. Remember that. It's important. Second... Start with small steps. Saying you will go to the gym and exercise every day for an hour is unrealistic for some one who has been sitting on the couch for years. Start small. Take the dog for a walk around the block every morning. Go to the gym 3 times this week. Add Vegis to one meal every day. Then as you get comfortable with that step, then do more. Take the dog around two blocks. Have a vegetarian day each week. Or maybe hire a trainer to really push you. When it comes to changing your life the big thing is to not quit. You might get things wrong and fall into temptation every once in a while but that's ok. Everyone falls. The failure is not getting back up. I discovered Pinterest. I found a picture that really spoke to me. It said if you are tired of starting over then stop quitting. So quitting is not an option. Keep moving forward to your goal. Every journey moves one step at a time.
