Challenge 52-7

Ok, ok, so I'm not really consistent with this challenge thing. Oh, well. It's free and the stakes aren't high :)

This week's challenge is to try and reset some of the negative self-talk we give ourselves. Whether this means putting positive Post-Its on the mirror, writing in a journal or changing negative thoughts to positive ones out loud, just give it a try! Be aware of what you tell yourself either directly or indirectly. Then give yourself a positive in its place.

Happy thinking!


  1. This is going to be a challenge every day. I think that most of the marathon training for me will be mental. Obviously the physical part is huge, but if I don't think I can do that 20 mile training run, then I can't!

    One of my favorite quotes is: Whether you think you can or whether you think you can't, you're right. (Henry Ford)

  2. I tell my kids that same quote...they don't always get it, but hopefully it will stick eventually.

  3. I think I'll be posting that quote to my treadmill. And refrigerator. And bathroom mirror. And computer....

  4. The other one I say, at least to myself, a lot is "That which does not kill you will make you stronger."
