Sacrificing ‘good’ for ‘perfect’

I don’t think anyone ‘enjoys’ queuing…


Especially if you’re a bit like me and always feel like you could be getting something else done..

It’s like you’re losing time, right?

Well, the other day we went for a family day out to Eureka (a children’s museum) 

But after we finally parked…

(Luckily I wasn’t driving as I’m not sure I’d have ever got in that parking space haha)

There was one of those signs saying:

“1 hour from this point” 😱😱

The thing is, it is what it is.

There’s nothing I can do about the queue

But when we noticed people seemingly jumping the queue…

I was getting curious..

Looking around

Ear dropping on HOW they got in front of me haha…

I mean, if you can get something quicker?

You want to know about it, right?

Well, it turns out that people who booked online, could jump the queue…

So there I was,

beating myself for not booking online…

Until the person in front said the most obvious thing ever…

‘we’re booking on our phones now”

So simple…

Yet I didn’t even think to do it…

And it saved us an hour of just standing there in a queue with two babies…

So why am I sharing this with you?

Well, for me?

it’s just like what I see happening with all these fitness and diet ​​​’regimes’…

AKA

overcomplicating things​​​​​​​​:

Telling you to just cut sugar, never eat after 6pm​​, eat hemp protein, never eat eggs, go vegan or even only eat meat (aka the carnivore diet)

Rather ​​just focussing on the SIMPLE basics that you already know….

like drinking more water?

Eating 5 different vegetables a day?

Getting more protein in your diet, be it from meat, fish, dairy, beans, lentils, protein powder, or lentils…it doesn’t really matter..

Not beating yourself up for having a latte and a piece of cake?

Knowing that eating out doesn’t mean your whole week is a failure?

Understanding that you don’t have to be fit to exercise?

​​​​​​​​​​​​You see, I can guarantee that you’ll get to your goals A LOT quicker

Even if you don’t do it all of the time..

Have some rubbish days..

You can just add these days to the ‘learn from this’ day

and do something about it…

(just like I’ll be booking online next time we go haha)​​​​​​​​​​

Rather than looking and waiting for the perfect time or diet…

and expecting everything to be perfect…

Because the truth is:

“​​if nothing changes, nothing changes​​​​”

​​So unless you do something, even the things you already know?

Your health, fitness and how you feel probably won’t get any better.

And I’m only saying this because everyday I see and receive a load of messages from people saying just how much their life has changed from becoming

​​fitter and stronger, doing the basics, developing a positive relationship with food, and adding small habits into their life which weren’t as scary as they thought..

And they’re so proud of themselves that they have found something they can actually DO…

Which is amazing for their confidence, energy ​​​​and motivation to want to do even more…
