I just got the most encouraging email from a new reader (Hi Meg!!!) and it made me feel so much better about the fears that I’ve associated with becoming a personal trainer. Thank you for your vote of confidence, Meg! I really do appreciate it!
With that, I think this quote goes along perfectly with Meg’s advice not to try to get it perfect “out of the gate.” Things take time and often, failure is a apart of success.
I’m also applying this quote to my diet. As of late (Easter, really) it’s been a complete wash. I always have a lot of healthy go-to meals and snacks (like salad club and my greek yogurts), but I went overboard with the sweets! DietBet is ending this weekend and I’m sad to say that I don’t think I’ll lose the 4% required to win. But, that doesn’t mean I’m giving up.
I say all this to let you (yes, you!) know I’m not perfect and chances are, niether are you. But that’s OK! We can’t have perfect diets or be perfect in the gym (or doing whatever) all the time. We should strive for balance. We should strive. Period.
Who’s with me?
Happy Monday friends!
