You don’t have to get to the gym or pay for a membership to get a workout in. Do some squats, jumping jacks, planks, and other bodyweight exercises at home for 20 minutes a few times per week. One hour of exercise per week is .5% of your entire week. You can make that happen. I wrote about my simple 20 minute workout routine here.
By working on incorporating one new healthy habit into my life at a time, I’ve created slow lasting changes. Week to week, my life doesn’t seem to look much different, but when I compare my habits today to a year ago, I see a lot of good improvements. I eat healthier, weigh less, and have gained strength.
That’s the whole purpose of working on healthier habits. I’m not looking to lose 10 pounds in 3 weeks or 28to suddenly switch to a vegan diet. I want to incorporate healthier habits into my day to day life – habits that will last a lifetime.
