trying to form new habits

Sunday, January 10, 2010

Trying to form good habits this year. I got away from tracking, drinking my water, and I really want to start working out again. I'm starting off slow, but plan on tracking my food and water on a daily basis. Now that this week will have me back on a normal work schedule, I plan on start doing a walking video a couple of times a week.

    thats a great idea. I used to set a lot of goals for myself then break them one by one. This time I'm taking baby steps

    Building new habits is always best on an incremental basis. Way to start small! emoticon

  I read that it only takes 21 days of doing any new thing for adults to make it a habit. So maybe choosing one new healthy habit a month , like drinking 8 glasses of water a day would work. Good Luck I am rooting for you

    I'm right there with you...I too am taking one step, one small goal at a time. Jumping in with both feet doesn't work anymore. It's time to use common sense and to stick with the plan.

    just do as much as you can when you can to start the good habits - after a while it will catch on and seem second nature....good luck sweetie!!

    Like awareness training, when you notice you're off, just get back on and try to leave judgement for later.

    One day at a time, one habit at a time. You will be successful.
