The "P" word
Monday, September 30, 2013
I always tell my kids, "There's no such thing as 'perfect'." "Practice makes improvement, don't worry about perfect, go for better or amazing, perfect is unattainable".
As I was sitting here contemplating my day I caught myself being upset that I didn't do everything "perfectly". I only tracked my breakfast today and probably had too many carbs and not enough protein.
However, I did put 2 hours in to taming this mess I call a home. My autistic 10 year old daughter commented on how much better it looked when she got home from school! And I did do a 30 minute cardio video this morning.
Everything I ate today was healthy, even though I didn't take the time to record all of it. For lunch I had a turkey wrap and a sweet potato followed by a granola bar and some grapes. Then for dinner I had 2 black bean and salsa soft tacos, no cheese, no sour cream... I'm still hoping staying off dairy will help my sinus problems. I need to make up a full vegan menu for the week. I enjoy food so much more when there aren't any corpses in it...
So was my day "perfect"? Not by any means. Was it better than last Monday? Definitely! And that's what matters! I will never reach "perfect" but I can strive for excellence and improving just a little bit whenever I can.
