Considering that today was Friday, I accomplished a major feat. I am finally back at the gym. I didn't want to go. I tried to talk myself out of going. I straightened the house, finished my book, ate breakfast, checked my emails, got dressed. . . and there was still time to go to the gym. So I put on my sneakers, got in the car and decided that I needed to return some library books, and get gas, and wash the car. . . . and there was still time to go to the gym. So I went to the gym. And I walked on the treadmill for 25 minutes. And if felt good. And it is Friday. Imagine that, starting a new habit, a good habit on a Friday. And the whole time I was walking I was wondering: Why does it take 21 days to make an activity a routine, and only 2 days to break that habit? That is really just not fair! But I walked, and then I went to work (on time, thank you very much). And in case anyone wonders, yes I do get up too early! Imagine that, on a Friday.
