Feb 22 2012: Day 30!

Today is a special day – it’s the 30th day of writing daily journal entries, and therefore MORE than 30 days of doing daily exercise and watching the diet. What’s so special about this? Well, “they” usually say it takes at least 30 days for new habits to establish themselves, which means I’m well on the way to making all of this a part of a new lifestyle!

Clearly I was excited by this idea, which is why I woke up just before 3:30am, hitting the gym by 4 đŸ™‚
