21 days to make a habit

I heard recently that it takes 21 days of doing something for it to become a habit. Seems reasonable. So I thought, "If I picked one goal and did it everyday for 21 days, maybe when I'm done I'll keep going because it'll be a habit by then."

So guess what I picked for my first goal?

That's right. Maya!
(original post here)

I'm on day three. I'm shooting for at least 15 minutes every day, but today I did a half hour. And it was so fun that I'm even thinking about doing another 15 minutes right now... hold back... don't want to overdo it...
Really, it's fun. And today I became a "bronze member" which basically means I unlocked a new workout area and music choice! But the cool thing about today was that I finally got past "Omg, I think my arms may fall off" to the point where my stamina kicked in and that warm glow goes up and down your limbs and you think, "Omg, I could keep going." Plus, I'm hurting in all sorts of muscles I didn't even know I had! It's not so bad, whenever I move and a muscle hurts, I feel proud of myself.

...Another 15 minutes won't hurt. (much?) [tosses laptop aside]
