Committing to creating a new habit


They say it takes 21 days to create a new habit and it takes 21 days to break a habit.

So that is just 3 weeks, less than a month, to make a change. When you put it into context it does not seem like that long.  Shoot, Lent lasts for 40 days, 46 if you count Sundays. Growing up in a Catholic family we always gave up something for Lent. Fasting from something we enjoy during Lent is seen as a way to help us reflect and prepare for the Resurrection of Jesus, Easter Sunday. 

I am not here to talk about religion. I just wanted to give you an example to put 21 days in context.  So it takes just 3 week to create a change in your habits, whether it be positive or negative. I am committing to working out for the next 21 days; today is February 18, 2019. I have done this before, and it really does work for me. The goal is to commit to feeling physically and mentally better. Exercising is a form of stress relief for both the body and mind, and will also help you reach weight loss goals if you have them.

At the start of the New Year I made a commitment to cleaning up my nutrition and that has been going well. Now I need to create (or recreate) another positive habit and this is my way of challenging myself. I will be holding myself accountable daily on my Instagram page, in the event you want to check up on me. 

Are you interested in making a positive change? I would love for you to join me!

I am not asking you to commit to the same workouts, rather just commit to doing something everyday for at least 30 minutes a day. I will have rest days but they will be active rest days, yoga or long walks. You can workout at home or at the gym. You can do cardio, lift weights, walk or run, or whatever peaks your interest. There are so many studies that show when you have an accountability partner or team you are more likely to achieve your goals. 

If you’re interested in joining please comment below or send me a message whether you are starting today, tomorrow or later this week.
