What new habit you wish to develop?

Saturday, March 02, 2013

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.

    I know you can do this. On good days your exercise may be a run or ST. On bad days your exercise may be stretching or a chair workout. Either way as long as you are doing your best you are being successful.

    On days I am fighting with myself about getting to the gym I will tell myself that I am only going to get a quick ten minutes in, which seems to work because once I am there the battle is won and I will get my full work out on.

    You have done it before, so you can do it again! And it will come back quickly -- with persistence and determination. Proud of you!

    You'll never know until you try!! My newest habit is Insanity! I love it and on my one day off a week, I do feel like I should be doing something!

    Just go at your pace, but push yourself. Not to extremes, but push that body some. Muscle and fitness won't come without a little push here and there! So emoticon emoticon

    Amazing! Thanks for your encouragement and support. You certainly know how to take a questionable situation and turn it +ve in a heartbeat. Terrific. I look forward to hearing more from you and the Seasoned Daisies to make my first weight loss attempt a success.

    Do you have some specific time of day to do fitness?
    Or do you follow a plan, what exercise you do each day?
    I noticed that thinking makes doing things difficult, like what do I do for exercise today, and when do I do it. When it happens in my "routine", it happens much easier.
    Keep it up, and let us know how you get habituated! :-)
