Happy Wednesday, my friends! Have a bit on my mind and heart (see previous post) so needed this workout tonight. I walked the first half with my daughter, and walk/ran the second half. Wrapped up with my daily plank.
This week I heard about someone that had been talking bad about me to others. I’ll leave it at that for sake of privacy here on the blog.
It truly bothered me, and still does to a point, because I always do my best to take of my friends, family and coworkers. I’m the most genuine person you’ll meet, and have worked through many difficult years fighting negative demons.
Today, I decided to take that energy and spread kindness. I offered to help a coworker with their duties knowing how busy we both are these days. I reached out to someone I know that feels under appreciated and verbalized my true appreciation for all that they do for me. And I hugged my daughter a few extra times when she got home from school, because what is honestly better than a good hug?
Am I still thinking about that other person that hurt me? Sure. I’m human. But I find doing positive and kind things for others always helps.
How do you battle negativity? Any other good tips?
I won’t lie. I feel like I am back to square one, or even a little further back since getting sick two months ago. I don’t ever recall running a short run at a 12mm+ pace. And every time I had to walk, it set me back a little further mentally. But I’m not getting any younger, and I’m at least out there moving. That counts for something, right?! Happy Monday, my friends. Thanks for always motivating me to get out and move. How was your Monday?
Happy Sunday! I spent the last couple of hours cooking and meal prepping for the week. Baked chicken, steamed veggies and brown rice will be our main menus. I did make some yummy chicken soup for dinner with diced carrots, sweet potatoes, poblano peppers, onions, garlic and chicken. I seasoned with all kinds of spices, going towards lots of warm spices like cumin, turmeric, paprika and garlic/onion powder. Finished the day off with my plank.
Happy Friday! My hubby and I took the day off from work and enjoyed a lovely day of walking through one of our Florida towns, called Tarpon Springs. They had a festival going on so we pursued lots of the booths after we enjoyed a yummy lunch. Wrapped up the day with a short plank. How was your day?
