It’s commonly said that it takes 21 days to form a habit. I feel like I am constantly starting stopping and starting (re-starting, rather!). I went on a five day juice fast, did really well on it and then proceed to fall off the bandwagon. In terms of weight, I’ve gained and lost the same 4kg in the last year. I’m at my wits end, I found myself googling “lap band surgery” but the issue for me, isn’t food as much as it is the lack of activity.
Yes, nutrition is important but when the peddle on the metal, I naturally eat clean. Which brings me to my next challenge. I want to start a “100 days of action” challenge – it involves doing something active everyday. It could be a full workout, a walk in the park as long as I am moving and being consistent at it, it’ll be counted.
I need to get out of the house more. With the job search still in full blast, I have the time I need to do what I want and I shouldn’t spend it lolling about in bed and watching tv. I have a gym membership, I have a park behind my apartment, I have access to a pool. I shouldn’t have an excuse so I won’t.
Anyone else care to join me?
I’ll tag future posts as 100.
