2012 Weekly Challenge: Booting Out the Bad

We all know when it comes time to commit to a life of fitness, the task can seem a bit overwhelming. Eating right, exercising, and making smart choices sounds easy in theory, but in actuality, can be difficult to put into practice. This year, we focus on laying a strong foundation of habits that will make future challenges that much easier to undertake.

Did you know it only takes 21 days to create a new habit or break a bad habit? This year, our weekly challenges have been created with that in mind. Each month, we’ll focus on one habit to change - either a new, good habit to make or an old, bad habit to break. Twelve months, twelve changes made in a way that will make it easy for you to change into the best you possible.

This week’s challenge is to make a list of everything you do for one day, whether it is making your bed in the morning, doing sit-ups while watching TV, or adding an extra scoop to you ice cream bowl after dinner. Celebrate the habits you are glad you are doing, give yourself a pat on the back- then turn to the rest.

It is time to boot out the bad! Pick one “bad” habit you wish to break and
don’t do it. For 21 days. Start small, and be specific. Share what you’re doing with a friend, family member, or Lorri Ann! Write it down and tape it on your fridge, bathroom mirror, or computer monitor. Remember, if you miss one day, pick it up the next. It’s impossible to be perfect, but not impossible to try.
