I was reminded this week of how much my life has changed because I was able to change the way I think about living a happy, healthy lifestyle.

Fevers and snot everywhere…

And I haven’t been to the gym since last Friday because of it.

In the past, like prior to 2012, when I learned to let go of perfection and started living my best, happy, healthy I’mperfect Life, this would have completely derailed me and it could be months or years before I’d decide to try again. But as I sat on my couch yesterday, eating tortilla chips out of the bag (because I do that sometimes), looking at the mess I created when I got a wild hair up my ass and decided to move furniture…and halfway through decided a nap sounded better, I remembered that I am not the same person I was prior to 2012. I mean, I’m the same person, but I think differently.

In the past, I would have looked at the last 10 days as a derailment that would require the stars and planets to align perfectly again before getting back to “being healthy.”

I would have assumed perceived failure, and given up, thinking I would never be able to lose weight or live a healthy lifestyle.

I would throw in the proverbial towel and go back to my ways of fast food and TV. But instead, I spent this past week eating well and taking care of my sick babies while also looking forward to getting back to the gym as soon as we’re fever free for 24 hours.

Change is possible.

If you’re stuck in the cycle of diet-fail-repeat like I was for so many years, I promise it’s possible to escape. It starts with #rule1 for living a #happy #healhty #imperfectlife which is #forgiveyourselfalways and moves on from there.

Learn all the rules at www.imperfectlife.com/the-rules We are all capable of change! And we all deserve to be happy and healthy, loving ourselves, our bodies, and our lives from the inside-out.

And I’m happy to report that as of right now, we have been fever-free for 24 hours! Wahoooooo!
