The truth is, I struggle. I have been struggling. I have been trying to get my momentum back ever since my vacation over a month ago. It usually consists of me starting over every Monday and giving up by Monday evening.

The truth is, I feel like I have to either try way too hard, or not at all. Remember this summer, I did 30 mins of exercise for 100+ days straight?? Another example, I've been operating under the idea that in order to even start a workout, I need to do that workout every day, on top of hockey, work, and if I wanted to go for a run. This isn't really the case. I got some great advice from some great people and I'm going to live by it. Or at least try to. Hockey is a workout, so is running. I will be counting those as my workouts from now on. I have lots more to say about my workout plans, but that's for another post. 

The truth is, I am struggling with my food. I don't know if you know this about me, but I can eat a lot of food. Like some days, I truly believe I could out eat my husband. Crazy right? It's true. 

The truth is, I am addicted to sugar. It's bad. I had no idea until just recently. I need to be able to do this in moderation, because I don't believe in cutting any food groups out completely. 

The truth is, I'm a Beachbody coach, I know the 21 day fix meal plan. I know how to eat. But some days, I need someone to say to me, it's okay to not be perfect. And that one ice cream cone has not caused your whole weeks worth of good choices to be for nothing. An ice cream is an ice cream. A treat you can have once in a while. Not the end of your healthy choices. 

The truth is, I'm pretty sure I'm not alone and that others feel that way too. It's okay to not be perfect all the time. It's okay. As long as you get back up again, that's what matters.

The truth is, I sabotaged my progress yesterday. I ate a bag of crispy minis and a lot of goldfish.

And the truth is, I'll be starting fresh today. Not Monday. Today.

  1. It's ok to struggle and its ok not to be perfect. I look at every bite as a new opportunity to do better. If this bite wasn't a great one, I try better for the next one. Ice cream wont kill you, I promise. An obsession with your food and workouts can.

    Its ok to cut yourself some slack. Do what makes you feel good. I am here for you :D

  2. We gained the same amount this week--it happens! I agree w/ Jess. Struggling is the human condition, and it's ok. You have done so well, and a period of struggle does not have to sabotage you in the long run. You got this!

    1. Thank you! I think I am being a bit too hard on myself. I feel like I need to step back and look at the bigger picture.

  3. Perfection is just a figment of human imagination. You just have to do what you can when you can! You should check out WYCWYC and BODYpeace to help give yourself a break.

  4. I know the feeling. It's hard not to keep going when things are no longer perfect. But imperfect doesn't mean failing either.

    1. You're right, and that's something I need to remember.
