I also ride my bike twenty miles each morning. But the reason I am writing this is not to talk about me, but to report to you about an observation that I made while riding each morning. This is something that I am very perplexed about. I saw so many people out for their morning walk, and jog. At first I was very excited to see so many people exercising. After a few days however, I made it a point to stop and speak with one person each morning. The reason for this chat was to ask them if they normally exercised, and if when they returned from their vacation if they would continue. I was so surprised by the answer. I found that most people do not have a regular exercise plan, and most of them thought that they would try and exercise upon their return, but felt they would probably stop based on all the previous times they tried.
This is so sad! They started to make the necessary changes and form new habits, but the experts all say it takes 30 days to form this new habit, they were so close!
If you are one of these vacation exercisers, this information is for you. You were so close to making changes, and I am sure you felt wonderful after your long walks, not to mention how energized you felt.
