Lets strive for better rather than perfection
I was out reading my normal round up of blogs and wandered over to Kathy Calculates. She had issued a challenge to people to have a perfect Monday. Stay within your points and get in your 8 good health guidelines. Now as I was not part of this challenge I can honestly say I was not perfect. She wrote today about a better Tuesday. I was struck by this because I struggle so much with trying to be perfect that I end up beating myself up for not being perfect. Even worse i have been know to blame others. This is my journey and while I need the support of the people around me, ultimately I am the one who puts the food in my body. So I guess my point for today is to make sure that I do not beat myself up so much and stop blaming others for my failure. From hence forth I am taking responsibility for my own actions. I will strive to be better everyday in one small way. That may be being more active or eating better or just having a better attitude. Today I am choosing to have a better attitude about everything. I will have a positive day. I will weigh in and be happy with the results. I will not allow outside influences to bring me down. Today will be a good day.
