Habit Building

Monday, December 19, 2016

Earlier, I really didn't want to do my exercise or writing. But I still have to take out the dogs, no matter how much I would rather go straight to bed. Once I brought them in, I found it wasn't hard to get in my two minutes exercise (which turned into five, woot woot!). I didn't have that same resistance to exercising that I had before I started my streak. Now that I have decided that it's just something I have to do every day, it takes away the energy I used to waste on trying to decide whether to do it or not. Instead, the energy went into a few arm reps with 3# weights. It's a start!

Next... 10 minutes writing, then off to bed.

    I'm on day 76 of my morning exercise streak!
    it's getting to be part of my routine; like you said, no question...I'm doing it.
    Saturday, sis wanted me to go shopping with her EARLY. She asked if I could skip my exercise...NOPE. I just went for a 5am walk instead of my usual 6am.

    The scale isn't moving too much, but I feel better.

    Judith Beck says using the mantra "No Choice" for habits we absolutely want to keep really helps cut down the energy that drains us. Exercising for short bouts sure seems reasonable to accept for the long run. It has to be doable!

    Ha ha that's so funny but true! We do waste energy on fretting about having to do exercise. Great job , emoticon
