Progress not Perfection

Wednesday, January 13, 2016

That's my motto this year, Progress not Perfection.
I'm a recovering perfectionist. Only from myself do I expect perfection. I am a firm believer that in whom much is given much is expected. In my lifetime, I've been given much:
I have a wonderful, loving, supportive family. emoticon
I've had an excellent education. emoticon
I have a wealth of resources at my fingertips. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
Therefore, I feel like I should do better, be better -- not just in my health and fitness but in every aspect of my life.
I recognize the pressure I put on myself, I experience the disappointment and anxiety emoticon this causes, which is why I am working on it.

I feel like I'm finally having some success in this. I've got some Spark streaks going, I've won a LOT of food battles recently and my mind and spirit are in the right place.
I'm feeling like this time around, I got this.
