What Do I Need To Do To Be Perfect?

November 14, 2007 · 6 comments

In over three months of this journey from fat to fit I don’t think I have ever once had the “perfect day.”  That day you do everything right.

As I was going to bed last night I was thinking about how I did yesterday, and at first I was feeling pretty good about how the day had gone, particularly since I was challenged by the fact I was in Chicago.

The Good

  • Had a healthy breakfast. 
  • Had a good salad+chicken breast for lunch and only ate half of it because I was talking so much.
  • Drank a lot of water.
  • Accepted the mini-bar key and didn’t even think once about cracking the seal.
  • Put in 40 minutes of cardio on the hotel treadmill. 
  • Didn’t eat the two chocolates I found on my pillow after turn-down.
  • Had a good salad+chicken breast for dinner.

The Bad

  • Slept in an extra 45 minutes instead of lifting weights.  Since I had a 6:00am flight this meant I got to “sleep in” until 4:00am. :-)
  • Ate half of a roll at lunch.  It was more reflex than anything else.
  • Had a cup of mushroom cream soup at lunch.  The salad would have been enough, since I only ate half of it.  But wow was that soup good!
  • Had a cup of french onion soup at dinner.  The salad would have been enough.
  • Ate two rolls with dinner.

The Ugly

  • Nothing. 

A good day.  Given the circumstances, a really good day.  But not perfect. 

Perfect is hard.

Perfect _is_ hard. But as long as the good things outweigh the bad things on a consistent basis, you should see continuous progress. Remember, “persistence, not perfection.”

Perfect is boring. Making good choices is what matters. No one is perfect, no matter how much they might profess to be.

Could never be perfect. I hate perfect. I’m definitely a B student, not an A+.

Trying to be perfect is setting myself up for failure, its why I can’t follow a diet that requires you to only eat certain foods or eliminates certain food groups.

I’m so proud of you for avoiding that minibar!!
