Motivating to Keep Skinny!

I just finished a 5 mile run with my friend Julie and I feel like a million bucks! Hard to remember a time when I loathed
exercising…running especially!!! Now I run 6 days a week and have started training for my 1st 13.1. I had so much loving support building up to my long runs(9 miles being my best as if now) my mom(who started nagging me at 12)…should of listened…oh well…better late… my lil sister Marietta who is a much better runner than she may realize, my friend Erin who trained for my 3rd 5K with me, my friend Jessica from high school who is gonna run Boston!(wow!)and always posts her mileage (puke stories and all<3)inspiring me to push to that next mile marker!
Running is a mental exercise as much as physical…without confidence…your mind quits long before your legs!
Motivating myself was the reason I started this blog…but motivating others brings me soooooooo
much more joy!!! And even better still when I see friends using my blog to motivate others…well…Pride, Gush, Gush,Smile, more Pride…(thanks Cathy)…it is over whelmingly hard not to stay motivated with all that POSITIVE
ATTITUDE!
Which brings me to the final Attitude Diet Post and what a week this was…I learned I am pretty positive, but my speech does not always reflect that optimism?!
My do over day was 98% effective and keeping the day one log of wonderful things helped keep my tongue in check.
I am actually really diggin the list keeping…it has been an excellent and easy tool for seeing the good around me, in myself and in others. This part of the diet I plan to continue for the next few months until I feel my thoughts and habits are tweaked for good!
I think my mind lost 40lbs this week! WooHoo! I’ll take it!
After all if we keep our mind right our bodies can stay tight.
Keep Positive, keep motivating(self and others) and keep skinny!
