I am not perfect, but I keep going!
Most days this truly my mantra. Being the mother to two little girls and a wife (too!), I constantly feel like my life is me making mistakes to fix and learn from daily.
Seriously, what is life without making mistakes?
It would be highly boring if I was perfect and never did make a mistake in my life.
Growing up, my mom would tell me that it was indeed ok to make mistakes, but as long as I learned from these mistakes, didn’t repeat or make the same mistakes again, and apologized (if necessary), that it was seriously ok to make mistakes
And trust me, I have made some doozies even just this past week alone.
When you ask?
Like leaving the house without extra juice boxes.
Why would this be so bad, you ask me?
Well, Emma had her pre-school circus this past week. At the end of the show, they served snack and juice boxes to all the kids. There were extras and Lily was able to have her own. So all was well with the world or so I thought.
But then, it was time to leave. Somehow her juice box got thrown out and she screamed like a crazed non-napping child would in the back seat of the car as we were driving to meet up with rest of family to continue the celebration with ice cream.
So how did I rectify this mistake?
Kevin stopped home and I was able to go into the house to replace her missing juice box. Crisis thankfully averted!
What did I learn from this mistake?
Make sure to take juice boxes with you at all times!
So, how does this relate to the almost over Slim by the Summer challenge (less then one week and counting)?
Well we were asked this same question for this week’s challenge.
To be honest first and foremost, sweets are my downfall, but so are salty items, too. Especially during that time of the month.
Well what have I learned?
I have learned that I can seriously only do my best as far staying in shape is concerned. And that I am going to fall off the wagon from time-to-time (especially during my period), but it is how I deal with these lapses that count.
If I can get back on the proverbial horse and keep going even after these slip-ups and not let it deter me from the ultimate goal at hand (being fit), then that is all that matters.
I mean no one can be perfect all the time, especially with their diet and working out. Life has a way of getting in the way (like parties, celebrations and even monthly PMS) and that is the way it should be and just is.
If I can learn to accept it and just do what I can for the most part in being healthy, then I am doing my part to help myself on this journey.
And I think that is all anyone including myself can do.
So what are your vulnerabilities in life, as well as your diet and exercise, too? And how do you cope?
