I love this quote becuase it just tells it like it is…
“Don’t wait until everything is just right. It will never be perfect. There will always be challenges, obstacles and less than perfect conditions. So what. Get started now. With each step you take, you will grow stronger and stronger, more and more skilled, more and more self-confident and more and more successful.”
-Mark Victor Hansen
My favorite part of the quote is "So what"
You gained a little weight? So what.
Clothes getting tight? So what.
Don’t look like the airbrushed models in magazines? So what.
Used to weigh less? So what.
Had a slice of cake at an office party? So what.
Do I need to continue?
Nothing will ever be perfect. All you can do is move forward.
Here’s my food journal today. I started using eTools. It took me until now to figure out my monthly pass account. I actually had to call them to work it out. Other than that I’ve been hanging out with my parents. They came to visit the baby. Oh! which reminds me I posted "Never wake a sleeping baby" vs. Breast Feeding on Babble this afternoon.
