MAKING EXERCISE A HABIT

I have always heard if you do something every day for 21 days it becomes a habit.  Well, after six months I finally feel like I can say that I've made a habit of working out.  I have always struggled with making exercising a priority.  I would do something for a little while and then eventually quit when it got too hard to make happen.
I realized this week that it's been six months since I started doing spin classes--I go anywhere from 3-5 days a week!  This is officially the most dedicated I've ever been at working out.  It made me really excited, since I often feel like I'm lacking considerably at being disciplined in anything. 
It helped when I decided I had to go early in the morning--which is the only time I have available to go.  After school is spent running to dance, piano, art, buying groceries, and all of those things moms do.  So, mornings are my time.  I usually wake up around 4:50...roll out of bed, dress, and am out the door by 5:00.  I  love the feeling of having that workout done.  Then I can spend the rest of my day taking care of my family.
I've lost several inches and even got into a pair of pants this week that I haven't worn in 3 years!
I still have a work to do, but it's so good to see results happening--even when they're slow.
Here's to six more months of becoming more and more healthy!
