I would like to start by making a couple of confessions:
- I am a perfectionist and really beat myself up when I make a mistake.
- I suffer from a rare disease called Stykuhpmyass Syndrome.
These are 2 things I’ve had to try my hardest to get over since trying to get healthy. (And not push my friends away because they were late for something…..it’s a problem)
Let’s take this weekend for example. I had great plans to meal prep and make my house immaculate. I did none of these things because I felt a little under the weather. And you know what? That’s okay. I don’t have to have my delicious Jamie Eason Protein Bars for snacks when I can quickly whip up some Protein Fluff in the morning.
I also skipped my workout this morning. My first thought on rolling out of bed was too profane to include on my own blog. But then I realized that there are still a lot of hours left in the day, and I just happen to be free after work. Going in the afternoon isn’t going to make me lose any progress.
It is times like these when I have to remember that being healthy isn’t about perfection, it is about persistence. I also have to look back on where I started and remember how far I’ve come.
So tonight, I will kill it at the gym, then try to show up my husbands spectacular lettuce wraps with some Greek meatballs and tahdig. Wish me luck! (I’ll need it)
Until next time,
