Strive for health not perfection

Please understand that being healthy & fit does not mean perfection. There's no such thing as a perfect person so let's not make that our goal. There's no such thing as a perfect body. We don't need to have a perfect workout, or to eat as 'perfect' as we think we should. 

Being healthy isn't about that. 

Listen, there's nothing wrong w wanting to look our best. But if that's the only focus, life is gonna be miserable. 

Instead of punishing ourselves, striving for a perfect body or some beauty standard that has no meaning, let's strive for a healthy life. Let's be a STRONG, healthy role model for our kids. Let's work toward a wonderful, joyful life God intended for us!
