I've heard it takes 21 days to form a habit, but I didn't realize it could take up to 40! That's a good fact to keep in mind. Thanks!

A little way into reading this article, I said to myself, "Who wrote this? Coach Dean?" Thank you so very much for saying this in a way I can understand it and believe it and put it into practice! Are you that little fly on the wall?

This article hit home with me. Consistency is the # 1 reason we win and lose. If you are not consistant you will lose and if you are consistent you will win. When I speak of winning I am talking about with us, not against others. Let say you make a decision to live a healthier life style. This is about you and for you, therefore only you can do it and the way to get it done is being CONSISTANT.
I wrote these down and put them inside my kindall, which I take everywhere. They are all good reminders. No matter what ails me I always feel better after a workout. The buddy Idea is one that will really help me because I always do better when I have to be accountable to some one else:O)
I liked this. The other day I wasn't going to go walking, because my legs were bothering me, so I decided if I could come up with 5 reasons not to go , I wouldn't.I went for my walk and my legs didn't hurt any more by walking, then they did sitting.I actually felt better.
I think this article could be read and re-read to keep motivated. Everything here is common sense. We sometimes fell like our situation is so unique that no one else has these situations come up. Another suggestion might be to get up half an hour earlier each morning and put on you exercise clothes and start moving. Then, if life gets in the way, you've exercised and started your day feeling more motivated.
