I’m already thinking that what I’m about to write is “poor writing” because what I’m about to write is a common phrase and every copy editor I know says not to use sayings but oh well. Get over it. Here we go.

It’s time for me to practice what I preach. (Common saying = poor writing… too bad)

A lot of what I ramble on about here is on habits and specifically daily habits. Somehow over the past couple of years these have become a bigger and bigger interest and part of my life. With all these daily habits I’ve accomplished I’ve only ever had two fitness-related habits stick. The first was to run a mile everyday. I did that for 100 days and have zero interest at the moment of doing it again. Maybe in the spring… The other is to do 20+ pushups everyday. I recently eclipsed the 1-year mark!!

Okay, my point is that I want to create a new daily habit involving fitness. I’ll keep the 20+ pushups going (heck, I kinda wanna keep that going the rest of my life) but wanna add something to it. By the time this publishes next week I’m sure I’ll have created something. This is just me trying to figure out how to do it.

With this site my big thing to make it work was eliminating the things that stopped me from writing and publishing everyday. How do I do that with a fitness habit?

First I need to define all the things that stop me… being tired at the end of the day, not being dressed properly, takes too long, etc. Then need to determine how I can do the most simple fitness thing that doesn’t get hindered by all those obstacles that still gives me the biggest results I can get. It’s a pretty tough algebra question to figure out.

I’ll keep you up-to-date on my progress. Let me know what suggestions you have!
