Creating a Habit

I don’t want this blog to turn into posts only regarding the gym and working out and healthy foods, but let me tell you that being healthy has never been a routine for me until now. So, if I talk about my health achievements more than my business achievements, it’s only because I have the confidence to get business work done, but have/had very little confidence in ever being fit or adopting a truly healthy lifestyle.

That being said! Tomorrow will mark 5 weeks of my gym routine! Go me!

Five is the highest number of consecutive weeks that I’ve kept up a fitness regimen. My favorite part about it all is how much I actually want to go to the gym now. I’m serious! It’s crazy! This weekend, I realized I created a habit for myself. Or I changed a bad habit into a good habit.

Whatever it is, I don’t want it to stop…but not stopping is up to me.

I guess all of this resolution stuff is really just creating or changing your habits. Not taking care of my body was/is a bad habit. Not being proactive enough about my work was/is a bad habit. The reason we (or I) want to change these habits is because I know it’s not healthy to live otherwise. It’s just not healthy to eat a bag of chips in one sitting or to procrastinate on work and stress until the last minute (I’m still working on this one).

I’m sure it takes a while to fully change some bad habits. After which, I’m sure new bad habits will form. But nonetheless, I’m proud to say I’m making progress. One step at a time.

Here are some motivational quotes about habits for you!

“Your beliefs become your thoughts,
Your thoughts become your words,
Your words become your actions,
Your actions become your habits,
Your habits become your values,
Your values become your destiny.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“The chains of habit are too weak to be felt until they are too strong to be broken.”
Samuel Johnson

“Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.”
Jim Ryun

“Enthusiasm is the electricity of life. How do you get it? You act enthusiastic until you make it a habit.”
Gordon Parks
