Hey there! I got froyo last night.
When I get frozen yogurt, I don’t mess around. I got every flavor including Raspberry Cheesecake (!!!) and then topped it with Reese’s, chocolate chips, peanut butter chips, mini M&M’s, and sugar-free chocolate syrup. I love everything in the world when froyo is involved. I like everyone’s shirts and the tables and my hair that’s still wet and the fact that my only workout that day was swimming around in the ocean and the pool (not the best combination for your skin but oops). Not exactly Sweating Dirty, but nobody’s perfect. I took a rest day.
Today, I’m going to give you a whole bunch of pretty (ish) pictures, and then talk because I like to do that. Let’s observe.
Workin’ on my tan-ness! This is progress.
Always ready for the beach. No makeup.
Toes in the water…. ass in the sand?
Sunflowers from Joe the Trader that make me smile.
… And new salads! This one is vegan and includes multiple superfoods. I’m proud of you, Joe. This is some good tradin’.
Last but not least, my Grandma. She’s the cutest in all the land. There’s no contest.
Now a small chat about my own struggles with perfection (and imperfection). I’ve always wanted to do things right. To the T, looking perfect and being perfect. Over time, I’ve realized this isn’t possible. I get froyo every week and don’t work out all the time. But that’s what this community is about. That’s what this challenge is about. Pushing yourself, embracing what your body is capable of, and nurturing it, all for imperfect happiness. I’m not an expert. I don’t have a degree in Nutrition or Exercise Science, but I’ve learned through years of experience, trial-and-error, what works for me and what doesn’t. What I am here for is to motivate you to find your “perfect”, and to live in happiness. Because healthy living isn’t just about eating healthy all the time and working out every single day to your body’s limits. It can be, but for most people (like me), it’s not. We can all have our froyo once in awhile, and we can all have our rest days at the beach. Life, love, and happiness, and most of all, balance.
What does perfect (or imperfection) mean to you?
