Creating a Habit

I heard from somewhere that you have to repeat something 21 times in order for it to become a habit.  So I guess that will be my new challenge.

Backgrounder:
I have gained approximately 20 pounds since our management training started.  I know it’s a lot; I practically ate my way to passing the training, and now I can’t seem to stop.  I’ve tried a lot of exercises (running, Plana Forma, yoga), but right now the 360 Fitness program is my favorite and I’ve been doing it for two months now.  Unfortunately, I’m not doing it as often as I should, so I figured I should bundle it with diet and a home exercise in the morning.

I’ve looked at a lot of options — blogs, magazines, and Pinterest (it’s a fantastic source of everything) — and I gave myself this challenge.

I sampled the 100 workout.  It takes me about 25 minutes to finish, but the first 100 makes my ankles hurt.  So I said to myself, I’ll do the 100 workout in tandem with the 100 Calorie workout.  Here’s the breakdown of both.

 The challenge here is having the time to do all these.  So here’s the plan:  Everyday for the next 21 days, I will do either one of the two before taking my morning shower.

It’s exactly what I used to do before (I used to run and do yoga every morning until I had to replace them with studying).  When I feel like I won’t be able to workout in the afternoon, I will do The 100 Workout.  If I will be able to swing my 360 Fitness, I will do the 100 Calorie Workout twice.

Is it a feat?  Of course.  It’s not easy to get up at 5 in the morning to subject yourself to pain.  But if I want that gap between my thighs, a tummy that can substitute a plate, and buns that float midair, I have to do something.  Dylan is getting tired of my complaining about my body (which he claims to love [though I really shouldn’t say that in THAT manner, because he really does love me in whatever shape or size I choose]) and I don’t want him to feel like he’s stuck with an insecure woman.

And I want to feel better about myself.

So…. care to do it with me?! :)
