Is it really "good enough"?

Friday, September 13, 2013

I set some goals this Spring that I wanted to accomplish by the end of Summer. I wanted to be able to load my kayak up on top of the car without assistance and I wanted to run an entire 5k among other things. I did not quite achieve either of things, but you know what? I am not feeling bad about it. Nope, no guilt or feelings or shame. I ended up running two 5ks this Summer, and while I took a couple short walking breaks both times I still turned in a decent time. As for loading the boat? I am satisfied with what I can do, which is help my brother load his boat and then we load my boat. It works. I figure why mess with something that works? So the answer is yes... it is good enough and I am okay with it. Of course this could be a bit of a slippery slope. Just because I am not busting my butt to achieve those two goals doesn't mean I am going to let everything slide. I have regained 5 pounds, but I am working not to regain any more. I am happy where I am with my weight, but I don't want to become lax, so I will continue to use the trackers and weigh myself once a week.

I had a good day. Three walks with the dog, some yoga, and food within reason. Also managed to get in some cleaning and visited with friends. Just a nice day today, though I could have used some sunshine.

    Sounds like you may be working on some good goals for fall! You have had a great summer of healthy eating and fitness. Focusing in on your bullseye of TWO YEARS of two hours of daily fitness is INCREDIBLE!!!! Sure hope you and Cooper stay in the dog pound for fall! emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon

    You have had a busy summer and have accomplished a lot. You will finish a 5K and be able to load the kayak sooner rather than later.

    Congrats on working on your goals, even though you didn't quite get there, you kept working at it. I haven't ran completely through any of my 5Ks either. No shame in walking a little bit! You have done more than many people so big win!

    learning to live in maintenance isn't easy (so I've heard- it is still a long way off for me) you lost more than intended at first, you have maintained a very active lifestyle, you are continuing healthy habits, you continue to set personal goals- is it good enough? only you can answer that question- but if you are feeling positive in your body, and able to maintain and enjoy healthy active living, I would think so. Your daily blogs continue to challenge and inspire me because of what you have overcome in your personal life, keep up the good work

    Maybe you can set a couple of new goals for the fall to help keep you motivated.
