Okay, I admit it... I'm a negative self talker. And I can't take a compliment. Ever. However, I am making a conscious effort to do better. And recently I've noticed a lot of other women who do the same thing. Women who are beautiful on the inside and out - yet totally lacking confidence. Perhaps I should start a negative talker anonymous program. Or maybe some positive person should... there I go again.
For today's workout I ran 3 miles and did a 22 minute core workout. It was tough. I'm sure I'll regret the decision tomorrow when I'm trying to keep up with my friends on a 12 mile run and my abs are screaming at me. But it will make me stronger and faster, and honestly I really need to do more strength training. I can't be all cardio, cardio, cardio. I need some balance.
Hope you had a great workout today - and repeat after me: I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and dogonnit, people like me.
