Get the Body you want at any Age! Week 6 – Self Appreciation

self appreciationThis week I want to focus on self appreciation. This will be a 2 part challenge…

Part 1 – which I found very difficult, is writing down 5 things you like about yourself – now you can share or not share, but this is completely up to you. One of the first things I noticed as I started this exercise is all the things I don’t like about myself came flooding into my mind. BLOCK – Anyway – here are my five:

  1. I am a kind, caring and compassionate person
  2. I am fun and sometimes funny
  3. I am a good friend
  4. 9 out of 10 times I do the right thing
  5. I do like who I am

Whew – glad that part is over…

Now onto part 2 – I want you to write down 5 things you did right today, the kicker – try to do it as you catch yourself in some negative talk…. For example:

I ate 10 cookies – gosh, I am so disgusting; I have no self-control, no wonder no one… STOP – take a deep breath… now be positive… ok, so I ate 10 cookies, it’s done with – I need to move on and focus on my next meal and get it right – maybe think about how to avoid those darn cookies next time…. Or My pants are getting too tight again, what is wrong with me, why can’t I have more self-control, blah, blah blah – STOP – breath… OK I know why my pants are getting tight – If I don’t like it I should do something about it right? But what … I need to get back on track, make a plan, and take some action ….. etc., etc.

Here is an example of 5 things I did right today…

  1. I apologized, because I needed to.
  2. I’ve made my plan for the week
  3. Completed my video and got blog up
  4. Corrected some negative talk
  5. Etc.

Can’t wait to see what you come up with!!

Oh and I have to laugh – this video is from 2011 but still relevant to day – so enjoy my shenanigans!!
