Fitness Freak: 21 day rule

Fitness Freak: 21 day rule
If you've been following my blog for a while, you will know that I often dip into the subject of fitness and health in my posts. (most recent post). Fitness and health is something I'm very passionate about, it's how I de-stress and what I enjoy. Most people, including me struggle to keep up a healthy lifestyle all the time, So I like to share some of the tips and tricks that I pick up along the way. 

I saw this on pintrest today and loved the idea and from tomorrow: I will be implementing it in my life. 

We all know quick fixes don't work! Research shows that it take 21 days of conscious change and commitment to make a change a habit. This include fitness and health. If you want to eat healthier, then for 21 days you need to consciously choose to eat healthy. If you want to lose a bit of weight, then you need to make a conscious effort to work out for 21 days! 

After that, research suggests that you've trained and taught your brain and body to treat these changes as habit. You will start to crave healthy food and crave exercise. 

Obviously this doesn't apply to everything - quitting smoking or something bigger may take a longer period of time. But this is a great start. 3 weeks is not a long time! 

So for the next 21 days, I will work out or do some form of exercise for a minimum of 30mins! To help me achieve this, I've put 21 numbered labels along my mirror as a visual reminder. Everyday another label can come off. It's like counting down to christmas - except I dont get chocolate! I'll hopefully lose a few pounds instead! 

I would love for you to take this journey with me - Let me know if you do and we can keep each other going! 

Good luck!
