Good enough

I last wrote about small goals. So how'd I do?? Some days good and some days not so good. Isn't that always the way? Progress, not perfection, right? Right. I made it to the gym twice last week and ate lots of vegetables...and had time for my friends. Time with my friends is just as important as time at the gym and eating healthy. Balance.

So, small goals for the weekend? Making it to the gym at least once, and relatively healthy eating. For the week? Making it to the gym three times and no sweets. Three workouts may be difficult...I've some plans with friends that may not allow three workouts. We'll see how it goes and I'll do my best. That's all I can ask. Sometimes the best I can do is good enough rather than perfect.

Making my best effort, recognizing what my best is, and accepting that it may not be perfection is one way that I maintain a healthy attitude about my weight and my eating habits. If I always strive for perfection, I will almost always fail. I need small wins to fuel my momentum, for my progress, for my success!
