AffirMINTion, Good Morning!, Health and Fitness, Mintdom

We Are What We Repeatedly Do – What Are You Doing Today?


06/18/10 – 6,209 Steps
4 glasses of water

06/19/10 – 3,214 Steps
5 glasses of water
1 hour of exercise (water aerobics)

06/20/10 – No data (did not put pedometer on)
3 glasses of water
50 minutes of exercise (swimming)

Today I need to pick up my water. I am a little under the weather this morning, and perhaps my lack of water is the reason. In addition, this will be short this morning because I am under the weather. I have a good step tracking habit, and my steps have increased since I started. My exercise is picking up too; in fact, my eating is better and my water intake has increased. I know 3 glasses is low, but last year I went days without drinking water. Anyway, I love Aristotle’s quote because I feel that I am on my way to excellence!

“We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit.” –Aristotle

It takes 21 days to make a habit. What habits are you working on these days? Are you working towards excellence in your health and in other areas of your life? If the answer is yes, maybe you can end up like Toby Keith in this song. Actually, I saw this song this morning and I needed a way to work it in! LOL

AffirMINTion: I am an excellent water drinker!

Make it a GREAT day, IF you choose to.

What are you waiting for?

Life is good!

PS I hope you dads had a wonderful Father’s Day yesterday. My dad is in Minnesota so I was unable to see him. My sisters and I did a conference call with him though so no race to talk with him first – other then we beat our brothers to the punch! LOL I have the BEST father in the world! Of course, he got a great breakfast via my mom, and a walleye dinner, but he spent a lot of the day helping my aunt out, which is so like my dad. He is such a dutiful person, and is always thinking of others. I love you, Dad. Thank you for always being there when it counts, and even when it does not! You are the best!
