What About Bob?

Ever watch 'What About Bob?' with Bill Murray as the neurotic patient? In it, Dr. Leo urges Bob to take 'baby steps' to reach his goals (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p3JPa2mvSQ4&feature=related). That's what I'm doing here, baby steps. Hopefully with more steps forward than backwards.

Since last week I've been baby stepping through treadmill and circuit routines with my Lifetime Fitness trainer Everett. And with suggestions from Dr. Branyas, I've started baby stepping my way to better nutrition, such as adding almonds as a snack and yogurt to add protein to my typical breakfast of cereal. Of course, babies do fall...but that's why we have the BetterU program, to help us baby step our way to a healthier life.


  1. I like your babysteps idea...one step at a time to better health, baby! Keep going...

  2. A very wise perspective. Sometimes when we look at a set # of weeks -- 12 in this case, we think we have to cram everything in. But the road to a Better U (or me) is not just 12 weeks. It's day in and day out for years to come. And baby steps is a great way to start.
