Positive attitude

Friday, May 04, 2012

I must admit, the hardest part of change for me is my attitude. I fight negativity constantly, but sometimes it just overwhelms me. I am trying so hard to be positive and stay positive. I am giving myself little inner pep talks, and trying to replace the negative self talk with positive self talk. I am going to have to google some more ways of getting and staying positive. There are so many barriers for me to overcome when it comes to negativity. For starters, I have 3 kids-6 yr old boy, 4 yr old boy, 2 year old girl. I'm a stay at home mom, and most days I am home all day. When I do my workouts I can't even do them by myself, I have a little 2 yr old trying to do them too, getting in my way, or she absolutely MUST change her clothes at that moment and needs my help, so I end up doing a lot of yelling and getting fusterated, then I feel guilty. Many days it starts this way then just snowballs into being a miserable day with constant yelling.

But now I am trying to be more aware. I am trying to catch myself when I am starting to lose my patience, and at that very moment give myself a pep talk. I think today I might make up little signs with motivational, positive quotes on them so I can hang them in different spots around my home. Maybe if I go for a walk WITH the children instead of trying to get them to leave me alone long enough to get a workout in. But I don't think I could count that as really working out, cus I wouldn't be able to walk fast with my little monkeys taggin along.

Can you tell I have so many things rambling around in my head that they are all getting jumbled up? Ever have those days? Maybe I will try to relax, drink my coffee and read some more of "The Spark"..........Have a wonderful Day!

    I thought raising little kids at home WAS exercise!! In any case, bear in mind that when you look back on this time it will seem like the blink of an eye. I have 4 grandchildren well past this stage and I can't figure out where the time went. Enjoy every minute!!
