No One is Perfect
On your weight loss/healthy lifestyle journey there will be obstacles; there will be self-doubt. There is no such thing as perfection. Every day brings the opportunity to make the decision to select good choices.
As we all navigate this crazy beautiful life, anything and everything happens; kids get sick, you get sick, work stress, relationship stress, your work responsibilities, the household responsibilities, finances, car repairs, four children pulling you in different directions with their busy social lives, and constantly trying to be the best wife/mother/friend/sister/daughter/employee that I can be to everyone in my life. But hey folks, guess what? Life happens, regardless if you are ready for any of it, whether it is good or bad.
PLEASE REMEMBER: If you make some negative choices during your journey, don’t beat yourself up. Forgive yourself. Be strong in the knowledge that no one is perfect. Everyone stumbles at some point(s) in their life. Last week, I had a sick kiddo, my cold came back, I was stressed about a great job opportunity (that I ended up getting), I was tired and exhausted, and a super busy schedule. All are “great” excuses; however, I made the decision to not eat and what little I did eat was junk food. Also, I made the decision to not exercise at all. I was really hard on myself, but I realized I have to stay positive and move forward.
I am so ready to get back into the swing of things with my healthy lifestyle. I am working on being nice to myself (mentally) and taking everything one day at a time. Life is a marathon, not a sprint. I am definitely going to maintain a positive attitude and strive to be a better version of who I was yesterday. Stay strong everyone! Live! Have fun! Take care of yourself.
