Start Small

Start Small

As I’ve expressed to you guys before, I’ve never been a big fan of working out. I’ve had a gym membership, I got super excited about going and then would find myself wanting to leave after being there for a mere 20 minutes. So here’s my piece of advice to you guys for the day; start small. It’s something I’ve found has been helping me. Ive always placed this expectation on myself that working out for 15 or 20 minutes wasn’t enough, but who says? Maybe that’s all you can handle at your current fitness level, but at least you’re starting somewhere. Even if you do a set of 10 push ups and find your arms have turned into noodles, at least you did something. You’re making the decision to try and you should applaud yourself for that, don’t beat yourself up because you couldn’t run a full mile or lift a 20 pound weight. You’ll get better, you just have to keep making the decision to try. A lot of days my 24 minute DVD workouts are all I can handle, and that’s okay. I don’t need to be in the gym lifting weights for an hour to better myself. If you’ve made the decision to try to better yourself, good job you’ve taken the first step! Now if you’re not really sure how to do that, just start small. Whether that’s doing a set of 10 push ups, a 24 minute workout, or taking a jog around the block. Everyone has to start somewhere, and the fact that you’ve started is something to be proud of.
