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.

    That last paragraph is awesome. That is a good piece of advice and I like your way of battling the negative voices. Just do one thing better than yesterday. Amazing how something seemingly small can really be profound when you think about it.

    Its amazing how we don't always listen to our own advice!! I do the same thing at my job! I keep telling myself that I have to practice what I preach and others will follow! Keep it up and it IS the little things that count! emoticon
