Antithesis Alphabet...

Tuesday, May 21, 2013

This came about because the other day, as I was getting ready to head out for a day of errands to include picking up my R'n'R schwag-bag, I found my mind wandering along the lines of..

I should not be Envious of Kashmir and her running buddies, I should Emulate them!

I like following Robin's running adventures on Facebook and think her very fortunate to have Shelly and Cheryl to go out running with. I had the Galloway group at one time to run with, but I let myself slip away from that Tribe and now find myself Tribeless. Having someone to run with certainly ups the motivation and accountability. I need to figure out how to gain that back again.

Anyway, here are my efforts at my Antithesis Alphabet...

Instead of being Apathetic, I can strive to be Active.
Instead of B1tching, I can Be more positive.
Instead of being Cranky, I should be Creative about changing my moods.
Instead of feeling Desperate, I can focus on being Determined.
Instead of not recognizing Enough, I must work on Emotional satiety.
Instead of feeling like a Failure, I should focus on Freeing myself from doubts and disappointments.
Instead of Gorging, I should remember I am indeed Good enough.
Instead of Hurting myself with food, I should look at it as a means to better Health and Healing.
Instead of thinking myself Inept when it comes to being healthy, maybe I should become Innovative.
Instead of feeling like a Jerk, I should focus on finding Joy.
Instead of Kicking myself when I’m down, perhaps I should remember KISS – Keep It Simple Superstar!
Instead of feeling and being Lame, I need to remind myself to just Laugh.
Instead of being Moody, I need to get over myself and find my Motivation.
Instead of Nasty stinkin’ thinkin’, I need to work on New self-praise and support.
Instead of thinking I will always be Obese, I need to Overcome my fears and faults.
Instead of falling into “Poor me” behavior, I should remember that I’ve got the Power!
Instead of Questioning whether or not I’m worth the effort, I should embrace my Quiet fierceness.
Instead of Regressing to the person who use to eat her feelings, I need to Rise up and fight the good fight.
Instead of Self-pity, I will work on Strength!
Instead of Telling myself that it just doesn’t matter, perhaps I should Thrill at each accomplishment.
Instead of feeling Unfulfilled, I should look forward to feeling Unlimited someday.
Instead of thinking I’m Very very slow, I need to remember that I’m still moVing forward.
Instead of Wishing for something more, I should be willing to Work to make it happen.
Instead of eating eXtra servings, I need to look for eXternal solutions to how I feel.
Instead of Yawning and feeling sluggish, I should Yearn to feel more energized and move more!
Instead of feeling Zonked at the end of the day/week/month, I want to feel Zany and Zippy and Zingy!

How about you? What do you want/need to turn around?
Try try again...

    This one rang out with me:

    Instead of thinking I will always be Obese, I need to Overcome my fears and faults.

    I loved your alphabet. You are very clever!

    We just need to keep moving, right? We'll get there. I might not be at the front of the pack, but I ain't quit yet. LOL

    I was really surprised when I finally got my butt back in the gym how quickly I progressed. I may not be where I was at two years ago...but it's not going to take me long to get there. We are a lot more knowledgeable this time around! It's so great to see you putting your mind to it! The next race is going to be that much better! You've got this Candi...focus on what you are doing today and this week to insure the next one is that much better!

    Love it! That took a lot of work, but I do appreciate all of those reminders! I'm going to copy and paste this and print it off so I can refer to it when I start feeling any of those negative thoughts. I am notorious for letting those negative thoughts seep in and ruin my progress!

    Thank you for sharing!
