Focusing on the little things
Thursday, May 09, 2013
Well as I continued to battle the voices in my head today (and not the crazy funny voices that make me laugh - the negative evil voices that make me want to quit and eat pizza), I decided I need to have an active way to think about something positive. I decided I am going to try to find a couple of little things of which I can be proud.
I will no longer think about how I can't quite manage a push up on my feet. I am getting better at the ones on my knees. I think I can now confidently call them push ups instead of my former affectionate term - face plants.
Today in my yoga routine, I was able to do side plank without going to one knee - on both sides.
When my lunch plans fell through today and I wasn't prepared with my healthy food from home lunch I normally have, I chose a healthier option (Boy, was I almost at In-N-Out).
I can remember being in jr. high and listening to a motivational speaker. I have no idea who he was, or what his story was, but something he said has stuck with me my whole life. Just do a little bit better today, than you did the day before. It's funny, I tell my employees this all the time, yet I seldom listen to sentiment in my own life. So what if the scale hasn't moved much in the past couple of weeks. There are other little things that show I am improving - I just need to take the time to pay attention and celebrate the little wins. I will keep pushing. I will strive to do a little bit better tomorrow.
