It's okay not to be perfect.

Guess what? You're not perfect and neither am I. 

Some days you are going to be all over this healthy lifestyle change, you'll be motivated and focused and nothing will stop you. Other days you might wonder if it's all worth it, think you're defeated and not want to get off the couch. And some days you might make not so healthy food choices and feel grumpy and guilty like you've really fallen off the bandwagon.

That's okay. We are all human, none of us are perfect. There is no reason to feel guilty, it's just food. And this is not a 30 day plan or a 12 week program that you have "ruined". This lifestyle change has no expiry date, so you know what? You've got the rest of your life to get it right. Brush yourself off and start again, not tomorrow, not next week, right now.

Just aim small, step by step. Make changes, day by day, one healthy meal at a time. You don't have to be perfect. You're doing your best. And that's pretty awesome in my book.
