Baby step plan 2 for a healthy life

As most of you know I am working on a baby step plan to live a healthier life. This is a very long term goal of mine and it involves breaking down my bigger goals into teeny tiny baby steps.

I have shared my baby step plan number 1 HERE to give you an example of just how small and simple my goals have been. As they have been realistic and achievable for me right now, I have found that I have been able to reach them and achieve success.

Baby step plan number 2 involved me pushing myself physically a little more.
Below is an example of what it looked like:




I set very small goals to get my body moving and running because right now that is what I feel is going to help me the most. Even thought I personally hate running!

The funniest moment was when I was trying to reach the goal of running 300m. I was using my phone with a running tracker as my guide on the distance I was running. When I hit the 200m mark my phone internet connection kind of died out and it was not updating me on how far I was running. With tears in my eyes from pain I kept running and was delighted when it came back online to see that I had made it to 500m. Woo hoo!

To make it to the 1Km goal I put a song that I love on repeat, used all of the negative vibes I had been feeling during the week into my legs and made it happen. I was so excited when I finally made it to 1Km. Not a big running goal for some people but for me right now it is huge!

Of course now I get to write out my baby step plan number 3 and I look forward to sharing it with you very soon. Small progress is good progress. Right?
