Virtuous Cycle, don't you like the sound of that? I read it today in a new project Spark Guy is working on. Vicious cycles are what we are more accustomed with. But a virtuous cycle, well, that's just Apparently, the term is nothing new. It has applications for consumerism, medicine, organizations, and pretty much anything that can get better with focused efforts and improvement. I personally like this adaptation from Praxia:
I'm starting a virtuous cycle today. My focus will be fitness. I almost got the nutrition nailed. But lately, my energy to workout has waned. I stopped working out in the morning. I still go into work later than I should, but I get up and spark around on my phone and check on my Facebook peeps. Well, I need to regroup because some of that time could be better spent. I'm reconvening my morning workouts. I started with a 35 minute Walk Slim DVD workout this morning.
I've had some BLC recruits add me to their Fitbit Friend List, so I need to "be the model" there as well, so I'm renewing my 10K steps per day goal.
My daily fitness goals for the week:
1. 30 minutes of fitness daily (yoga, strength, walking, elliptical)
2. 1 walk at work. Just got back! It was in writing, so I had to!
3. 10k steps per day. I'm at about 6,700 right now. A quick spin on the elliptical tonight and I'll be there!
I'll try to check in with a blog every day to monitor my progress. Are you creating a virtuous cycle?
