This is going to be a quick jot down of thoughts today – to mirror the aim of the topic!
The aim: to start – and maintain – a booty building habit.
Yes, I know I’m forever hammering you with posts on staying motivated, what you should be doing, building routines, goal setting etc., but I’ll be the first to admit that sometimes there is such a thing as doing too much planning or skirting around the actual work to be done, instead of actually just doing the thing!
The ‘thing’ that I’m referring to with this is booty building (that is what we’re all here for, right?). If you’ve arrived at this site and are reading this, I’m guessing is because you want a better butt. The way we’re going to get there is by building one through exercise/healthy habits!
Your Mission to Begin the Booty Building Process
So without further ado, here’s your task for today: pick one booty-building move that you like (if you need a little inspiration, you can always check out our list of best butt exercises for some inspiration).
And now? You’re going to do ONE rep/set of that exercise today.
Off you go! Do it now. I’ll wait.
(this better have been you above!)
I’m proud of you!
Consistency Trumps Intensity!
Now, I want you to commit to doing that same minimum of ONE REP everyday – for the next 100 days minimum. That’s it. There is no extra requirement to do any more than that for now (but you can if you really want to).
This is How You Build a Habit
The key is to make it small. So ridiculously small that you wouldn’t skip on doing it. And reward yourself when you find that you’re sticking to it! Done a week in a row? That’s awesome! Recognize and celebrate that.
As you gain confidence in your ability to follow-through and take action, you can then start to step up the intensity – like making your minimum requirement 2 reps for example (or even 1 rep of 2 different butt exercise moves!).
Keep It Simple Sexy!
This is really the key to building a habit. Keep doing the same thing over and over, until your brain gets wired to do it on autopilot. I had kind of written about this before in the 1 squat per day challenge, but that was years ago and I kind of fell off the wagon on that (hey, it happens to all of us.. the key is to get back on as soon as you can!).
So, who’s with me? Let’s bring back the 1 squat per day challenge, or pick your own move! I may even go for something that incorporates my booty bands so I can dust them off and get some better use out of them. To be honest I haven’t used them much at all recently, but they are a great product so I’m keen to bring them back into a regular routine!
Are you on board? Leave me a comment to let me know that you’re committed to this simple idea! I’d love to know that someone else is joining me on the booty building habit train!
