This week my #onsmallchange commitment is to allow myself to be IMPERFECT. Of course I am not perfect… whoever is? But I seem to think I should be. I set such high standards for myself and expect a LOT from ME, and I need to, want to, practice being nicer to myself when I don’t meet my own expectations.
I need to forgive, face forward, forge ahead, if not forget… don’t ya love the alliteration? I am so hard on myself when I fail, when I slip, when I don’t perform. And it needs to stop. I need to be nicer to ME! I need to take a deep breath, assess, and just move on.Over the past several weeks I have committed to making these changes till the end of the year:
- no eats after 8 p.m.
- drink 64 ounces of water each day
- take my supplements
- uplift at least one woman each day
- be extra nice to a difficult woman each day
- have enough pre-workout fuel
- nutrient combination of 20% fat, 35% protein, 45% carbs
- pre-bedtime routine
And I didn’t evaporate into thin air… I didn’t explode, or implode, or even suffer in any way.
I could have chastised myself and beaten myself up… but I made a conscious decision NOT to meet my own goals. And I am taking full ownership of my actions, or lack thereof, and moving on.
It feels good to be able to ALLOW myself to be somewhat lax, and IMPERFECT, and almost decadent in a way. I think I need to practice this a bit more often!
What about you? Could you make #onesmallchange for your own health this week?
Do you beat yourself up when you don't meet your own expectations?
