what good habits have you developed recently? how did you do it?

I had a friend visit over the weekend, and the person was really into running and exercise. I got dragged out each day to run, workout, swim. I was hesitant the first day, and motivated the next.

The person left, and this morning- I went for a run and a swim! This person had changed my habit, helped me develop a new one. At least for a day. I can't stop thinking about this, how effective a forceful person can be.

I do mini workouts throughout the day, so I'm more likely to workout. Stair stepper in the morning, set of 25-50 crunches whenever I can get them in, and a 30 min walk. If I split them up I don't feel like they take up a lot of time, and I am more likely to do more than planned. More motivation to stay on track.

Weight training

My local gym has a "Fit Beginnings" offer and it allows 60 days for $60 with twice a week time supervised group training on the Nautilus machines. I have not missed a day yet and it has been 5 weeks. Sadly, this offer ends soon so I must make some sort of decision about what to join / do for the long run before I lose my momentum.

I exercise in the morning...4:30am! I have been doing this since day one of joining PT.

I keep PT open on my work computer all day. If I bite it, it write!

putting up notes of affirmations inside cupboard doors where food that packs high calories and fat, (others in household eat these ) This works for me :One of these is: Think before eating, Best one is: Nothing Tastes as Good as Slender Feels, Visual feed back allows me to think of my choices. Also if I think I am hingry I drink water first then find out I don't really want that choice of food. Works for me, Have to do visualization.

My daughter encouraged me to start walking just a short time ago. I started at a park and walked about 15 minutes. I know it is pathetic. But we went out together for a couple of months. I lost 40 lbs. I continue to walk and go the gym but she started the whole process. I can walk up to 5 miles now and really know how to work up a sweat doing my machines at the gym and I also do the elliptical.
