Ten Days of working out, and watching what I eat. I have been good for ten days straight. The hardest part sometimes is just getting started in the morning, and convincing myself that it will be worth it. Many years ago I read that it takes 14 days for an action to become a habit, apparently, the research now suggest that it takes 21 days for an activity to become a habit.
One of the exercises this week was to ask one of your mentors about motivation. I really look up to one of the trainers at the gym. Melinda has a great body, and she is always upbeat. She even has four children! I told her it was hard to get to the gym that day, and she told me “Somedays, I have the same feeling.” It was comforting to know, that even someone like her has issues with getting going sometimes. It really made my day.
