Developing Fitness Habits

February 12, 2011

A habit, according to is

a : a behavior pattern acquired by frequent repetition or physiologic exposure that shows itself in regularity or increased facility of performance b : an acquired mode of behavior that has become nearly or completely involuntary <got up early from force of habit> c : addiction <a drug habit>

If you are currently not in the condition you would like to be in, know that you are there because of the habits you have developed and employed over the course of years.  If you would like to be in a different physical condition, you must develop different habits and employ those habits over time.  You are now 1 week into developing those fitness-supporting habits.  If you continue working on your fitness until your healthy eating and regular exercising develop into habits, you can rest assured that you will be rewarded with a new fit body that reflects those habits.six pack abs

In short, repeat the pattern of eating 5 or 6 small, healthful meals each day and exercising 6 days per week, week in and week out, and this pattern will become a habit.  This habit is one that supports a healthy, fit body.

On the other hand, if you’re trying to get to a new fit body while doing some or all of the same eating and exercise activities you did that caused your “unfit” body, then be assured that your body will reflect that.

Success is preceded by sustained effort applied over time.  The success you experience in your drive to fitness is COMPLETELY dependent upon your consistent effort over the course of time.

Your effort toward physical fitness — your habitual diet and your exercise — note, your HABITS, WILL MANIFEST THEMSELVES IN YOUR PHYSICAL FITNESS and APPEARANCE.  This is inevitable.  So, let’s go into next week knowing that EVERYTHING COUNTS in the building of our new habits.  Make next week your best week ever!
