Fight for the Positive Choice

Saturday, July 27, 2013

The way that has worked best for me in this health and fitness journey is to focus on the positive. Positive thoughts lead to more positive thoughts. Although I know that this is the key for me, it's sometimes the hardest thing for me to do. There are moments when stress creeps in and my thoughts veer off track, going into tangled, murky, fearful terrain. Once I let myself go there, it's not unlike binge eating - it hooks me in and I can't stop. I find myself harping on the what-ifs and the bad parts of my day/week/month. It's not always this way, but when it is, I have to step back and take a breath.
Today is one of those days. So. I kick boxed (imagining a particular face that my fist connected with) and did yogalates (to calm down and stretch). It was wonderful. I got on Spark Coach and got some positive feedback and reinforcement, and am feeling much better for it.
Days like this are reminders of how important it is to surround myself with positive, accepting people. Let go of the negative and what you can't control, and breath in the positive. Sometimes it's work, but in the end, the small choices to DO that work are what create our entire journey.

    I wish that everyone could be positive forces in your life, but I guess things just won't ever be that way.
