I think it was Ruth who started a lively discussion a few months ago about how long it would take to form new positive habits and whether it could be done in less than 100 days. The concensus was under a month and Sue, if I remember rightly, cited some NASA research with astronauts that it could be done in 21 days. Well I just looked at my calendar this weekend and discovered I have 21 days of my season 2 left to go and wanted to focus on something useful for the time that I've never really got to grips with - exercise! Yes I exercise, but never enough or consistantly to meet my goals. Of course, if it was a habit I would feel differently about it and my mental image of myself would be transformed. Somedays I have to remind myself what a good athelete I once was - just getting part of that mindset back would be a great asset to carry forward into my season 3. Sooo ..... the power hour began after dawn this weekend! It may take an initial act of will but hopefully I'll just allow the morning exercise regime to become a part of my summer programme before too long. I don't mind what form it takes, a jog, cycle ride, even some tai chi if I can - just as long as I fulfill my promise to myself to become that fitter, happier and lighter me I know I can be.
