Home another day with a sick little one. Bored we did artwork and I decided to give this motivational collage thing a try. I thought it would be hoakey, and boring, and just something to do. Well I was wrong, it was fun, made me feel young again and reminded me of how I was all about this as a teen. It also motivated the heck out of me and gave me a good spark which I really needed. I plan to hang them on my bedroom closet doors as this is where I beat myself up the most over my clothes, and feel the most discouraged, (they are also by the mirror which is also not my friend at times.
My Collage Messages:
I am strong and powerful. I used to be that girl that was fit and loved to run I ran track and distance and cross country skied and did field hockey to boot. I also exercised. However before I did all these super active things I rode my bike and walked and hiked with my parents, I am going back to basics and I am confident I can find that girl again and get her running and super active again.
Make it fun like it was when I was a kid. Fun is walking with my tunes blasting and strolling the neighbourhood or a trail.
Take time for me. I'm still putting myself last and I need to stop. Track what I eat, that means EVERYTHING even when I have an off day to keep me accountable.
My best zinger that I came up with is " Eat Right! Good fuel = good results, Junk = A BIG TRUNK (referring to the mid section area).
The other zingers I have put on my collage with the goal of doing "If there is no effort there is no worth". The best things in life are free.
Overall my plan is "To choose exercise that is doable and won't make me feel ike a failure : KISS principle, Keep it simple stupid. This one is huge as I have a REALLY bad habit of starting out with insane exercise videos and hurting myself or comparing myself and then quitting. I am going to start out walking.. That I know I can do with the goal to be toned and ready to run again injury free. Also to use positive self talk and to be comfortable in my own skin and the biggest goal and the scariest for me is to " wear my baiting suit out in public".
Pics of the collages are posted under my pictures.
