On a Monday morning I’m rearing to go and to take on the week, Wednesday is the middle of the work week, on a Thursday I feel good for making it this far and on a Friday I can taste the weekend.

But what about a Tuesday? I find Tuesdays to be the hardest day of the week to exercise. I’m usually tired from the Manic Monday and midweek might as well be a year away.

If you feel the same about Tuesdays, my Terrific Tuesday posts will provide motivation, a reminder of why we exercise and words of wisdom to make us feel inspired and turn Tuesday from terrible to terrific.

Excellence then is not an act but a habit Aristotle quote

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

I definitely found that once I was in the habit of daily exercise, it was so much easier to enjoy the workouts. For the first 21 days of getting into the habit I had to force myself to show up to the mat, but once it had become part of my morning routine, I didn’t even have to think about it anymore.

I won’t say my Sworkit workouts are an example of exercising “excellence” (have you seen my push-up attempts?!), but I am repeatedly working out. That has to count for something right Mr. Aristotle?

When exercising is a habit, all you have to think about is how good you’re going to feel afterwards.
