When, despite your best efforts, a work out just doesn’t fit. And you know what? That’s OK. Life is more than schedules. Unexpected things happen. And it’s OK. That said, no run for Rachel today.
Our faculty devotion today was an excellent talk on perfectionism. I’m a horrible perfectionist. I have this “all or nothing” mentality. I either work out for an hour a day. every day. Or, I don’t work out at all. I don’t indulge my sweet tooth at all. Or I eat a dozen cookies. I practice 3 hours a day. Or I don’t touch a piano.
What a destructive mindset! That’s part of what this blog is about: finding the balance in healthy living and moderation. It is possible to live a healthy life and still enjoy the occasional cold beer, an ice cream cone, or some cookies and milk.
It’s a balancing act. When do you indulge a bit? When do you say no? Is it really worth it? Will you savor each bite? Would a smaller portion satisfy the craving just as well?
