1% Changes

what is a 1% change, you say? as Jessi said over on her blog at naptime diaries

"If you're new to the phrase, it's basically the idea that in an effort to be healthy, you make 1% changes every day or every week. Just tiny (yet still costly) changes that you can sustain and that add up. You can apply it to anything - your physical health, your marriage, your decorating, your relationship with the Lord. Just slowly, by grace, getting a little closer to your goals day by day."

and I don't think I could have said it better.  so we are going to 1% change it up this week.

Samuel and I recently ish (june) got rid of our gym membership.  it was just a bill that we didn't need to be paying each month, so we let it go.  we talked about it.  we don't want to give up working out, but wanted to find ways around pays tons of money to get a good workout.

so we've been running.  or walking.  some of both.  we have a nice mile and a half track around our house, and it has been our main form of excercise. 

so what's the change?  to get out there at least 5 times a week.  I would love to be able to say I am running all of those times, but as long as I am getting out there; I'll be happy.  we're aren't complete slackers, but as of now, we are getting out there around 3 times a week.  yark. gross.  it's time to change.

you can hold me to it.  ask if we've been out. 

what's your 1% change ?


  1. I so agree with this! It's hard to make a drastic change, but little ones do add up!

  2. That's a great change!! I try to work out 5 days a week, too. It usually only ends up being 3 (or 4 on a good week) Sigghhh.... ;)

  3. a puppy sure makes you get out and walk more! ;)
