Have you ever heard the saying, “It takes three weeks to make or break a habit?” I am on week 3 of my fitness regimen and I honestly hope that my new workout schedule becomes a permanent part of my life. I am enjoying my running routine the most. I can feel my running magically transform. I have more stamina, longer endurance, and I have finally expanded my lugs to handle the long intervals. I’m still finding the cellulite challenge to be worthwhile as a cardio routine, but I’m not so sure I’m seeing my cellulite magically disappear. But that’s fine with me. I know it takes longer than three weeks to vanish cellulite away. However, I am starting to see a change on my stomach with my abs becoming more prominent and my lower stomach flattening. So, I am very satisfied with the ab challenge if it’s shaping up my stomach in this way.
For this week, I added something new to my fitness regimen. I signed up for ballet classes. For one hour once a week I’ll be doing ballet this fall. This is something I’ve always wanted to do since childhood, so I am very excited and really glad that I’m finally getting the chance to do it. It’s nothing too fancy though. It’s simply an adult ballet class I signed up through my local Parks and Recreation center. I highly recommend signing up for local classes like this because it’s one of the most affordable options. You can do dance classes or other activities like yoga. And with yoga $10-15 a drop-in session, you can sign up for ten weeks of yoga (once a week) for only $40, or in other words, for only $4 a session. Now, that’s a steal.
So, I’ve learned that when it comes to fitness you should always be willing to try something new. It can help your body in unexpected ways or you might fall in love with a new activity. And if you don’t like it, you can always try something else. I find that this is the most important part to a fitness regimen, because you want to discover an activity you love. That way, working out won’t be a chore, but instead a highlight of your day.
