What new habit you wish to develop?

The first question in a week of blogging
Hmm. What new habit do I wish to develop?
Honestly, It's not much of a new habit. I used to do it. I just want to get back into the habit I guess.
Regular fitness. I want to wake up every day and want to do some fitness - running, ST, dancing, whatever. I want to feel like I've missed something when I take a day off. I know I'll always have to push myself out the door, but it does get easier.
I have a half marathon in September I need to be training for. I also have dance competitions coming up. And since I've neglected it for so long, I want to get back to strength training. I want to be stronger. I want to boost my metabolism through adding lean muscle to my body.
So that's the habit I want to develop.
How am I going to get there?
It's going to take time. I need to do everything I can every day. If I finish the day feeling like I've done everything in my power to loose that next pound, I will know I'm doing what I can. It's not an overnight light bulb that comes on, but rather it slowly builds up and suddenly you are there.
The sad part, even while I'm writing this, I'm wondering. Wondering if I have it in me to do everything I can. I've been so sick for the past two months, it makes me wonder. I HATE wondering if I start today, will my health kick my butt tomorrow and set me back?
Mind you, I shouldn't worry about that. If it does, it does. That doesn't take away what I HAVE done. Hmmm. Gives me something to think about.
