This evening I exer­cised for 150th time since I told myself that I will not lose out and work­out.

This habit is also an exam­ple of how I hoped to deal with my new year res­o­lu­tions:

Iden­ti­ty — I saw myself as the type of per­son who nev­er miss­es the work­out. So I only cared to show up. I nev­er wor­ried about the weight I could lift or the weight I lost. There is only one per­son in our work­out group who showed up more times than I did.

Habits and Process­es — 5 p.m. to 6 p.m. every Mon­day, Wednes­day and Thurs­day. Just back­pack the work­out clothes and shoes. No willpow­er required.

Evo­lu­tion — Com­pared to when I start­ed, I can hold the band tighter, swing the rope high­er and last the plank longer. I am now com­fort­able with heav­ier ket­tle­bells. I can fin­ish all the sets and reps on the white­board.

I am not after any par­tic­u­lar results although I believe that results hap­pen by them­selves. I am train­ing for life. So the effort con­tin­ues.
