There have been studies showing that it takes 21 days to create a new habit. Why on Earth would anyone want to create a habit you ask? Think about good habits-exercise, drinking more water, eating one extra serving of vegetables a day. You want to get yourself in the habit of incorporating these types of things automatically into your daily life. Many even use the 21 days to create a new habit to replace an old habit.

My 21 days will focus on cardio exercise. Why cardio specifically? I have small weights at home where I get a little strength in every day. Nothing major, but enough to have a quick toning workout. I do 30 pushups every morning and planks as well. My goal is vanity. I want to look hawt. I am overweight, but surprisingly in pretty good shape. I enjoy running, therefore my goal is to do some type of running/walking for an hour everyday for 21 days. According to research, the fastest way to lose weight is an hour of cardio per day. Hopefully it will turn into a habit. This is a prequel to something that will be unveiled on Thursday (Thanks Kelly !)

According to this handy tool on Glamour.com I am eating 2242 calories a day! Holy hell I didn’t even realize it! I mean I do a lot of running so I am hungry a lot. I guess I am not burning as much as I thought. The first step is to knock out 250 calories a day. That is simple. A pudding cup, bowl of soup, a fiber one bar lol.

Grace in Small Things part 4 of 365 January 5, 2009

  1. A Raven Wildcard victory!
  2. Petting my cats and seeing how content they are and happy to have a loving home.
  3. Dying my hair red just because I can.
  4. Bare Escentuals makeup.

This exercise really is reminding me that it’s the little things that matter, not so much the bigger more difficult things in life.  If I have my health, family, friends, and cats then I will be ok.

  8. I have 3 magazines to read and some time at the gym coming up!
  9. I have some of the best and sweetest cats who love to nap with me.
  10. I have an awesome husband who is so supportive of my writing.
