Day 13 | Strive for Progress not Perfection

Day 13 – Strive for PROGRESS, not perfection. Truly, who defines what “perfect” is anyway? Stay in your own lane, the only thing we can “control” in this world is ourselves. Think of how much better the world would be if everyone stayed in their own lane, focusing on themselves and making their own lives better?! Think of the hate, fear and anger that would literally disappear. The compassion, love and understanding that would emerge. The healing that would begin to take place. What an incredible world that will be… and all it takes is focusing on ME, you focusing on YOU and doing 1 thing each day to be a better person. That’s it.

Today’s work out was Cardio. Honestly I cringed when I saw that. But I’m staying dedicated to daily movement. Much like when I began using oils and I committed to reaching for those first before anything over the counter aka “pharmaceutical’s”. Nature truly knows and I am grateful for that! Commit to a shift in your life that feels right to you, and you will see progress! Living in Alignment. I finished the other half of the 10 min abs that I didn’t get through last night after my 30 min work out and then did the Cardio program. I have to say I love the blend of cardio with weights and matt work!

When I wrote down my “goal” when I first started this program, it was strength. Then my weight. Truthfully my weight isn’t changing, but… I’m a photo girl. The photos show the true shift! 🙌 To say I am grateful to myself for finally taking the leap… I didn’t think this was possible. But if this 6+ year journey has taught me anything it’s the more I lean into me, the healthier and happier I am and my family is. When holistic health options meet energy balancing and then add in very consistent daily movement (vs weekly when I started years ago…). Ahhhhh it makes me feel giddy! Yeah I take daily vitamins, minerals and omega to support my health, but there isn’t a “magic pill”. Its being conscious in life, making conscious choices for food, drinks, cleaning products etc in our home. Kicking the endocrine disruptors to the curb!!! 9 1/2 yrs ago I had a hysterectomy because I was done with the medical system, done with pill after pill that had my body so beyond messed up. This lifestyle is what my body, mind and soul was craving. Thank you for being patient with me while I caught up to that realization 😋!

Lunch, my fav a bowl of whatever is in the fridge to throw in and made a home made dressing with olive oil and vinegar with the tropical oil blend! Super yummy and after my supplements, vitamins, minerals and omega. I’m getting my weekend routines figured out 😉!

A bath for the produce from the grocer store today. I like to wipe down the outsides of the melons before we cut into them.
Kale chips roasted in the oven!
My “bowl lunch” prep! Add in quinoa, protein, small avocado and I’m now making my own dressings now too.
