Making Mistakes and Being Okay with It

I would like to start by making a couple of confessions:

  1. I am a perfectionist and really beat myself up when I make a mistake.
  2. I suffer from a rare disease called Stykuhpmyass Syndrome.
Still searching for treatment options.....

Still searching for treatment options…..

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…’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)

PattyCakes: I'll just throw these weird ingredients together. What did I make? Only the most delicious lettuce wraps ever.

Until next time,

I am a 20 something focused on being a kickass mommy, fiance, cook, and worker-outer. I love everything about cooking (besides desserts, but I'm working on that), and I always try to make everything healthy. I live in Houston with my fiance PattyCakes, my son, The Bug, and my 2 puppies, Sir Reginald and Beaux. I absolutely love my family and would do anything for them. But I won't do that. I love crappy scary movies, disney movies, indie music, Hank III, classic rock, horribly childish jokes, naughty language, reading, Harry Potter, lifting weights, cooking, football, Nebraska, and being outdoors. I am getting married in May to the absolute love of my life. He is my greatest supporter in everything that I do, and my best friend and joke-provider. I lost a shit ton of weight a few years ago (193 down to 142 in 3 months) by eating healthy and doing P90X. I gained 25 pounds of that back, and am now working to get back down to a healthy weight using Weight Watchers and LiveFit. So far so good! So, read, enjoy, learn something, teach me something, and have fun!
