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.
