You’ve heard the saying “two steps forwards and one step backwards” right? It’s usually used to denote (in my world anyway) some form of self-sabotage. Working hard on my diet all week only to cave on the weekend and binge eat. it seems to be my pattern. I lust after the discipline of people like Tony who (from the outside at least) never seem to falter in their commitment to a healthy lifestyle. [No, I’m not comparing. Not really. But thanks for reminding me]. Funnily enough I don’t apply things to myself that I would apply to others. Like, every person has their own experience of the world. So today I’m going to choose not to lament over the fact that Easter was a blow-out in all respects. Booze, bad food and bugger all activity, but rather remind myself that I’m still moving forward and that the path to a goal does not have to be perfect, but rather optimal. Optimal given my lifestyle, what I enjoy, the friends I have and so on, not perfect as in an elite athlete who’s being paid to train, supported by nutritionalists etc etc.
I feel better already. 🙂
