Our actions are inspired by our thoughts.
Over the past few months I’ve become more aware of my thought patterns – how listening to negative thoughts can tear down my strength and resolution. And how simply turning up the volume on thankfulness changes my whole view of life.
I’m making a very conscious decision to engage in positive self talk. I’m trying to treat myself as I would treat a dear friend. It’s been a big transition to treat myself this way. For so many years I focused on the negative internally – while *appearing* optimistic and happy to others. And a lot of that was negativity about my body weight and relationship with food. Not just my body and food though. As a mother to 2 little girls I am determined to get this right. I’ve spent too many years being negative about everything from the weather to my stomach to my little toenails! I never want them to hear me talk negatively about my body. I want to model healthy exercise behavior. And show them a healthy relationship with food. And above all else, be a genuinely happy and thankful woman!
I am going to attempt to log on here at least every day and write down 1 positive about my life, body, surroundings…anthing!
- I have a strong body. A. Really. Strong. Body. I love weight training!
