A Habit of 3,000 Days

Tuesday, September 01, 2020

Habits
According to SparkPeople, I’ve logged in here 3,000 days in a row. I really am a creature of habit. Every morning I log in and find a picture and a quote to post. I log my food from the previous day, visit my friend feed and read some articles. It’s not difficult for me.
I’ve been working from home since mid-March. It was a big disruption in my weekday habits, but I’ve adapted. There’s no commute for me, so I start work a little earlier. I don’t walk as much during the day so I’ve made it a point to eat less. I really miss my friends and co-workers at the office. We still connect online, but it’s not the same. I haven’t come up with a satisfying way to replace that human contact. I was disappointed to learn there won’t be a return to the office this year. I know I’m blessed to still have a job at all. There will be more layoffs and my job is among those in jeopardy. I’m staying busy and not dwelling on things I can’t control.
Reaching this SparkPeople milestone has gotten me to think about habits. It’s time for me to develop better fitness habits. I don’t need to do anything drastic. I just need to be persistent. There’s never been a better time to start!

    I hear what you're saying... there's just no replacement for in person friends. I'm glad you've adapted as best you can.

    Great for you! I am only 92 days ahead of you! Hope you can keep your job! Lola needs her treats, right? It's been so VERY hot here, hard to walk & hike as much as I use to. Not performing, either. I've had to add several different activities to keep up my fun fitness routine.Today LUCY & I ran through the sprinkles at the park... so fun! She doesn't really like to get all the way wet, so this helps! I also swing on the swing sets. I didn't realize how much energy it takes! LOL!

    THX for sharing!

    Love your attitude, if you can't do anything about it, don't worry. Glad to read that you are still employed and sure hope they take off your position at work off the iffy list.

    You have a good attitude. I know some people are moaning about the situation, but it is beyond our control. I am so glad to see you joined the challenge. We can do this.

    2021 is only 90 days away, can you believe it. This was a tough year and it still flew by. Hopefully 2021 will be a great year for all.

    emoticon of your 3,000 days! I got kicked off my streak when I went completely off the grid camping. So I will never have as many as you do. I think that is really cool that you do though! Awesome!

    I am so sorry you won't be returning to work this year. Fingers crossed you will be back there soon! emoticon

    I have heard that 90 % of things we worry about never happen. God is able to help with those that do.

    I am a creature of habit, too...do SP first thing every morning while I drink my pot of tea.
    This is definitely one of the hardest times any of us have ever lived through.

    You can do it! I started with 10 mins a day nearly 3 months ago and now do around 30 mins of cardio most days... And it feels normal! I never would have seen myself here half a year ago!
