We all know that nobody is perfect and it's impossible to do things 100% right all the time. In the spirit of being completely honest, this has probably been the hardest week I've had since starting the 21 Day Fix. My motivation has been lacking big time and I haven't felt nearly as dedicated compared to how I had been feeling.
I think a big part of it is that I've been so busy with the holidays coming up and I basically just don't have the energy or time to focus as much on my health and fitness. That probably sounds like an excuse, but it really is the truth. I've been so overwhelmed trying to get through the days that I feel like I can't even focus on following a strict nutrition plan or working out every day.
Part of me does feel disappointed in myself, especially because my weight loss journey is so public and I feel like I'm supposed to show everyone how hard I can work and how successful I can be when I put my mind to it. But in all honesty, I know that I am doing my best and I am trying not to beat myself up too much for falling short of my goals.
And overall, I know this is a temporary setback. My company closes on Friday for two weeks, so pretty soon I will have a lot more free time to spend on working out and making meal plans. And then once the holidays are over I am planning on getting back in full swing. I've already made so much progress that I am determined to keep going and prove to myself that I really can do anything I set my mind to.
I hope this is a good reminder that we all fall short of our goals sometimes and that the best thing we can do when we fail is to pick ourselves up and try again.
