Counting my bleassings

It is so easy to be negative. I find that as soon as I start thinking good thoughts there's this annoying voice saying yeh but you can't do ....
When I was in teacher training I was taught that when you praise a child never say but...and give a negative because they will never hear the positive.
In the Beck diet solution she recommends giving yourself credit for your achievements. I managed to pass on bread till the main course as opposed to beating yourself up for eating the bread in the end.
I want to count my blessings for my ability to get stronger day by day. Be more positive and forgiving. Allowing myself to let go of things that used to really annoy and upset me. Most important I'm learning to accept that I'm not perfect and will never be perfect but I can strive to be the best that I can be.
Last night I went to a zumba class with a friend. Unfortunately she really didn't like it and doesn't want to go again. I had a great time and enjoyed the fact that I could keep up with the teens and that I was the most flexible person there...
I am committing to the following exercises for the next 120 days.
Day 1 of round 2. Plyometric circuit today. I plan to take 120 days this time.
Week 1: Insanity week 1
Week 2: Billy blanks (bootcamp, tae bo extreme, aerobics X 2 + 1 day rest)
Week 3: Insanity week 2
Week 4: Billy blanks
etc till I get till the end of Insanity.
I thought it would be so much easier than the first round but I'm still struggling with the push ups and the ins and outs.
Now if I could just get my eating under control.
