I am who I say I am

Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Assignment: Week 7, Day 1 of C25K Training
Steps: 5 min. of warm up, 25 min. run, 5 min. cool down
Mission Accepted.

As my feet hit the pavement, I relaxed my body. I relaxed my shoulders. I relaxed my hands. I internally and externally released all tension. I released all negativity, and transmitted "I know I can" into the atmosphere.

My focus was on putting one foot in front of the other. Breathe in through my nose, out through my mouth. RELAX. RUN. RUN. RUN.

With my hip-hop/pop playlist providing fast-paced tunes to keep me going...the going got tough. When the tough got going....I had motivation back-up.

Back-up Plan: Positive Affirmations

What we think about, we bring about. I am who I say I am (and who God says I am).
Nothing more, nothing less. Everyone's opinion/judgement is a reflection of them, NOT me.

My mother's Survivor
My sister's Keeper
My brother's Advocate
My father's Intercessor
Loving Mother
Devoted Wife
BEAUTIFUL (not at goal weight, but NOW)
(Just to name a few)

And as my permanent reminder, my tattoo on my left shoulder blade states, I AM:


Although, I had some walking spurts within the 25 minutes, I completed my training day.


I AM a RUNNER ;) 6 weeks, 1 Day Down, 2 weeks to go.

Who are YOU?

    I absolutely love that last quote. People tell me I am a runner and I always tell them that I am not. This quote just gave me a boost of confidence. And I love your affirmations. I am so excited for you!

    This is beautiful! You are indeed a runner and you can accomplish anything as long as you don't stand in your own way!

I am an athlete, a natural swimmer, sexy, confident, stronger than I could've ever imagined, independent, loyal, and happy!

    Wow! I love those two quotes!
I didn't consider myself a runner until I got past hating it and seeing it as exercise. I called myself a runner once I started craving to run. emoticon
