21 days

Walker has been talking lately about habits. If you do something for 21 days it will then become habit. He has been having fun thinking about his own habits (make bed, brush teeth, read scriptures, etc.) and what new habits he would like to add to his life.
 I have spent the last year making morning exercise a habit for me.
I swim, bike, run, walk, stretch, lift, breath.....whatever gets the blood pumping.
Mostly I need time to be alone, be active, and just be Katie.
And even though I have to get up at 5:30am, it is well worth it.
My point is, even though I have done this every day for the last year (okay, maybe not EVERY day) I am not sure it is habit yet!
Maybe there is an exception to 5:30am swims on dark, cold, winter mornings?

When do you get your alone time?

  1. My 5:30 am time is alone too. It's just that I am asleep in bed. I have established certain excercise patterns in the past, they're just too easy to fall out of. Good habits just continue to take a lot of effort to keep in force.
