I have started a new habit. Yep, and I am happy about it. See we often think of habits as bad because they often are. But with a little determination, it is possible to start a good habit. From looking at several articles, there doesn't seem to be a concrete amount of time needed to form a new habit. However, it seems that consistency and repetition are key.
Well my new habit is actually working out on the elliptical. Its easy. Well, not the workout, but getting in the habit of working out. My plan was simple-make it fun so I will want to do it. Let's face it, working out isn't always enjoyable. And if I don't enjoy something, I can find about a million good reasons why I don't need to do that something. So, I placed my elliptical machine right in the room with the TV. Yep, I am serious about this weight loss now. Guess what? It really works. So now when I come in to watch TV instead of plopping down in the chair, I get on the machine. If it's an interesting show, I get so engrossed in it that I hardly notice I'm exercising.
This is one weight loss tip I wanted to pass along. It is working for me, and just maybe something like it can work for you too. I do know dieting and exercising are hard. So if there is anything that will make them more palatable then that's got to be a good thing. Maybe, you need to buy an Ipod to take with you so you will keep doing your workout? I don't know, but I think we should do whatever it takes to help us not to quit. Let's face it, we are dealing with our lives here, and we are worth it!!! Have you found any tips that are helping you in your journey. I sure would like to hear them in the comments.
