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?


  1. Small progress is awesome progress! Go you xx

  2. Great work Naomi, how do you eat an elephant - one bite at a time...not that I want to.
