It is very common for people to say they are their own worst critic. But – that doesn’t make it okay. Last night, in addition to writing a negative post about my run, I spent most of dinner talking about how my running is crap and I really want to achieve “x”, but I suck blah, blah, blah. After I was done Ben was just quiet and said, “Are you done beating yourself up? Because you look really bloody.”
Wow, it really didn’t even occur to me that I was just going on and on about how crappy I am. Boo to Me Well, I’ve decided to build myself up today with positive affirmations and thoughts. My positive affirmation for right now is, “You are healthy, you can run 20 miles, you can do anything you want.”
I started the day with a long walk – in the rain. It rains so much here it might be time for me to build an arc. But I am glad it was a rest day so I could bring along my umbrella.
Breakfast was a pancake made with oat bran, egg whites, and cottage cheese. I topped it with PB and Truvia
I had an apple a little later to stall lunch a bit.
Then I decided I enjoy washing dishes because I dirtied three of them for lunch. I need to either start eating less or buying paper plates.
I am super introspective today and am really trying to figure out all the thoughts and dreams in my head. I am off to spend some time with my thoughts…
Question: What positive thoughts do you tell yourself?
