Today for my morning positive thinking I wrote this: Lily and Chloe are happy this morning. Lily is playing outside and Chloe is watching a movie. I am thankful I was able to catch up with tracking my facebook challenge group points.
Afternoon positive thinking: I am thankful that I was able to visit my friend today. Lily and Chloe were well behaved which made things even better. I am proud of myself for swimming 20 laps in the pool without stopping.
Evening positive thinking: Lily is creative. She has fun drawing maps on blank pieces of paper.
Lily had been bugging me because she was pretty dramatic a few times today when she bonked her head and a 20 minute scream fest ensued, so I felt the need to think about the positive aspects in Lily's character. My goal is to naturally think these positive things instead of needing to stop and come up with things I want it to be natural. As it is right now, my mind naturally reflects to: How terrible my allergies are already, and it's only the second day of having allergies! I'm on three different meds (anti-histamine, decongestant, and tylenol for the headache), I'm tired from not sleeping last night. Allergies hit hard and fast and I wasn't quite prepared, last night I had snot dripping from my nose all night, I had toilet paper stuffed up my nose and had to breath through my mouth, so I did not sleep well. (Anyone with bad seasonal allergies knows this feeling). I could go on and on and on, my mind ruminates on these negative thoughts, it's no wonder I'm constantly stressed, upset, and unhappy. When I think about the good things that happened today like how I went swimming because my back still hurts and I was able to swim half a mile without stopping! After that I made up my own HIIT training and I swam 50 yards (one lap or down and back) with a 1 minute rest inbetween and I shaved off 11 seconds from my previous fastest time! I used to swim 50 yards in 1 minute and today I hit each one in 49 seconds! That's my sprint pace so I couldn't maintain that for longer than 50 yards but I was really proud of myself for improving so much!
After my pool swim I walked on the treadmill for 30 minutes. Nothing intense, I think my speed was at 3.5mph. My back and foot still hurt so I didn't want to do anything too hard. It felt good to walk and stretch my legs.
