"Habits Will Make You or Brake You"

“Habit is either the best of servants, or the worst of masters.”
How many of us have bad habits?
I am sure most of you have been   wondering where I have been! I am trying to be more diligent and get in the habit to write more often in my blog, but I guess I have not been very successful at it.
I believe that our habits can makes or break us.  We can get in the habit to be happy, nature our bodies make healthier choices or we can get in the habit to  feel sorry for our selves and find excuses not to take care of our bodies.  So many of us have spent or will spend money on gym memberships, workout equipments, exercise DVD’s, diet books and weight loss programs. But I believe that we must create new habits or none of these investments will last and none will give us the results we want.
I know from my own experience that learning how to create good habits is the first step in any life-changing journey. I am the first one to admit that some habits come more naturally than others. One of the habits that I am working on is to make my exercise routine a priority in my life. I absolutely know with out a doubt that if I get in the habit of inviting my favourite trainer Bob Harper into my living room every single day and go to the walking track at least 3 times a week I would be  more successful on my weight loss journey.  I know that by creating this habit at the end of the day I will be the happiest since I will become stronger and healthier.
I know that a lot of my new habits have helped me to be the happiest at this moment in my life and no longer feel like I am chain to my own body!. I too like many of you need to work in creating better habits but I am thankful for the onces I have created, which I feel they have giving me my life back. I have no doubt that someday I will be able to say I did it and cross the finish line!

I finally got my hands on Men's Fitness magazine. My trainer Bob Harper was on cover!
I absolutely love Bob Harper..He has helped me get my life back!
I want to share with you my readers something  my husband shared with me from one of his books called “ Success for Dummies” by  Zig Zinglar.
I am your constant companion. I am your greatest helper or heaviest burden. I will push you onward and upward or drag you down to failure. I am completely at your command. Ninety percent of the things you do might just as well be turned over me, and I will be able to do them quickly and correctly. I am easily managed, show me exactly how you want something done and after a few lessons I will do them automatically. I am the servant of all great people and, alas!  of all failures as well. I am not a machine, tough I work with all the precision of a machine, plus the intelligence of man. You can run me for profit or run me for ruin- it makes no difference to me. Take me, train me, be firm with me, and I will place the world at your feet. Be easy with me and I will destroy you. Who  am I? I am Habit.”

I believe that all of us are born to be the best we can be and make the best our of our lives. So lets all create new habits! Remember that good habits must be grabbed firmly and with strong commitment.
