Progress... Not Perfection. One day at a time.

With time, women gain weight because we accumulate so much information and wisdom in our heads that when there is no more room, it distributes out to the rest of our bodies. So we aren't heavy, we are enormously cultured, educated and happy. Beginning today, when I look at my butt in the mirror I will think..., Good grief......look how smart I am! and then I will go for a run and be happy with what I am becoming.

"I never said it would be easy, only that it would be worth it." ...

Just had to stop by and tell you that I have the same "progress, not perfection" mantra going! It's a great way to take a long range view of a tough situation, and with two boys with special needs, I am sure you know how hard that can be!

I love your beach picture, btw...what a wonderful shot of your family!

"Progress, not perfection." I love that!! As long as we learn from our mistakes and continue to move forward as best we can... that's an accomplishment!

My body is the same as yours. If I go too hard too fast... I'll burn out... which is what I think happened yesterday. Monday I did my 30 minutes of cardio at the gym then came home and totally rearranged my daughter's room (furniture and all) all by myself. I was pooped! It's a sad fact, but I'm just not use to being so active. But that's why we're here right?

I'm glad that you and me are so alike. You know just how to pick me back up!
