I’m struggling today. Wondering why I’m doing this when I could be eating crap. I mean, I know WHY I’m doing it but I do get frustrated sometimes. I have to remember that it’s about progress, not perfection and even when I don’t eat all clean food I am still changing my habits and my health. I didn’t even eat too terribly bad today, just not all that balanced.  I did exercise, 55 minutes of pure barre. And I’m really looking forward to my well earned rest day tomorrow.

I definitely struggle with letting some minor setback ruin my outlook. I’m trying to work on that, not just with food but in all areas of my life. I can let a small glitch in a goal derail me, and end up listening to all the negativity in my head. The thing is, we ALL have bumps in the road.. nobody’s road is straight and smooth. I try to talk to myself the way I would to a friend, because I would never say the things I say to myself to anyone else.

It helps me to remember my smaller goals, and to take one day at a time. I can get to focused on how far I have to go. I have to refocus and remember why I set my goals in the first place. Don’t let a bad day or a negative thought process derail you. We all have down days. It doesn’t make us any less awesome.
