I don’t like to fail at anything I set out to do. You probably feel the same way. You know who dislikes it even more? Perfectionists and I think we all have some perfectionist tendencies.
Being a black and white, all or nothing thinker can cause a considerable amount of stress and anxiety. But that’s not all. Perfectionism can ravage one’s healthy lifestyle goals.
We all want to do our best, no matter what the circumstances are, but do you know what? Sometimes we fall short of our expectations. We sometimes overeat, miss a day of exercise, bypass a day of tracking. The list could go on and on. Guess what? That’s okay! What’s not alright is to throw in the towel. A gaffe is temporary and surmountable, and we have to look at each in that way. The perfection monster is elusive, so don’t spend your life chasing it.

Fall is one of my favorite times of year. There is something beautiful in it for all of us. It’s a season to renew, refresh and refocus on all the things that matter the most.
For me, I like to think of October as “the new year.” It’s a time for me to gear up for the cooler temperatures, the holiday season and everything that comes along with the upcoming months.
It’s also a time to enjoy the beautiful fall foliage, the crisp air AND exercising outdoors, while taking in everything our environment has to offer.
