The problem with habit

This year, I’ve decided it was time to start getting into a shape other than round. Okay, I’m a realist, so I wasn’t talking crazy like joining a gym and being around other people. I was smart enough to know that either of those things would put the kiobash on my good intentions before they’d even sunk into my long term memory.

I read about the reward system to keep on track of goals.

And that didn’t work.

I read about how to break goals into smaller bits and track those.

And that didn’t work.

I read about how the loss of something if I don’t achieve my goals is supposed to be 5-7 times more motivating.

That, actually, made a dent. Okay, maybe more like a scratch. But I did want to keep up with the hubbinator when we began our tour of all the national parks, monuments, and other points of interest.

So I decided to start slow. As in simply tracking my steps throughout the day. To that end, I bought a Fitbit HR. Simple that I could sync with my phone, but then again, I wasn’t going to go crazy.

The idea for January was to simply track the steps I do on an average day. (To put things in perspective, on a good day I’ve done 3K steps by 10am. The hubbinator has done about 10K.)

Somewhere around January 3rd, I realized that the hardest part will be developing the habit of putting on the Fitbit. Bah!

Ah, well, life is a work in progress.

Until next time:D
