 Operation develop habits is working...

I've been reading a book called The Power of Habit these quotes are from that book:

"Once you understand that habits can change, you have the freedom - and the responsibility - to remake them.  Once you understand that habits can be rebuilt, the power of habit becomes easier to grasp, and the only option left is to get to work."

"Will to believe is the most important ingredient in creating belief in change.  And that one of the most important methods for creating that belief is habits"

"This is the real power of habit: the insight that your habits are what you chose them to be.  Once that choice occurs  - and becomes automatic - it's not only real, it starts to seem inevitable, the thing that bears us irresistibly toward our destiny.."

These three paragraphs blew me away last night....

So whats new on my end?  Been going to the gym or mountain biking most days.  Trying to work habits into becoming the change I want and the person I want to be.  And its actually working....

Yesterday I took a glutes and abs class and had that oh shit feeling when an extremely buff German woman with short spiky blond hair strode into the room and proclaimed she was going to break us.....
There were only three of us and now today walking up or down stairs, sitting and standing are my personal hell.  
But I got my ass up and went to gym - because its becoming a habit.

Habit building...seems to be helping.  If I can automate my working out and eating right like I automate banking and paying bills ....hmmmmmm

  1. "Oh shit feeling..." Hilarious. I've been there. Did you consider limiting your water consumption to cut back on trips to the bathroom? Ummm.... ya, i've never done that.

  4. I love when a trainer can scare you! It's those trainers that get you back to the gym even when you don't want to!
