“Great things are done by a series of small things brought together.” ~Vincent Van Gogh
I spent years telling myself that it would be impossible to lose the weight I wanted to. There just wasn’t enough time in the day to fit in an exercise routine.
So, I would continue to eat poorly and do nothing in my down time but sit on the couch and watch TV.
If you are feeling overwhelmed by the idea of building an exercise routine, just start by doing a tiny bit more each day than you did the day before.
The great thing about making the decision to take control of my body by breaking this habit of doing nothing was that it hardly took anything at all to do more than I had been!
Step One for me was one crunch.
That was it. I laid down on the floor, completed one crunch and I was done with my exercise for Day 1.
That one crunch was more than I had done the day before. Each day after that, I added one more crunch. I did this for 100 days.
By Day 100, I didn’t only complete my 100 crunches. I went for a run that day, too (and I had lost 20 pounds)!
It Gets Easier
As you build just a little each day, it becomes easier and easier to accomplish more.
So, start today! Do one crunch or one push up. Walk for one minute, or even start with one jumping jack.
The best way to lose weight with hardly any exercise is to start small and build slowly.
