Taking Small Steps!
Many times when we start our fitness journey we want to change everything all at once! Don’t get me wrong, there are some people who can. However, I believe for the majority of us taking small steps in the right direction can help with making the transition easier and more likely to last. In the past, I would pull up to the Dunkin Donuts drive-thru window at least 4-5 times a week and order a light and sweet coffee! I soon became aware of how consuming too much sugar can contribute to weight gain. Leading to this realization, I knew that I had to break this habit. I couldn’t see myself parting with my Dunkin Donuts coffee, so I decided to make some changes. Initially, I was asking for three sugars, then I gradually went down to two, and now I only use some stevia and sugar free coffee creamer. Reducing my sugar intake, has helped me lose weight without getting rid of my daily coffee...& I do not miss the added sugar. Sometimes it takes small steps to create a lasting healthier habit!
