So today was not a good day.
Bad: I missed my yoga class this morning because my son was napping, and fell asleep ten minutes before we were supposed to leave. I could have woken him up, but didn't have the heart.
Redeeming factor: I went for a 4K walk with him when he woke up.
Bad: My well-meaning in-laws left behind some fruit tarts this weekend. Really nice pastry, whip cream, and fruit on top. I scoffed one down this afternoon because I was hungry and it was the first thing that caught my eye in the fridge.
Redeeming factor: I went for a 30 minute workout when my husband got home. I didn't feel like going for another run after yesterday, so I just did some cardio at the gym.
Bad: My husband went out with his buddies tonight. It was hard work getting both kids to bed, and I didn't feel like cooking for myself afterward. I ate two pieces of pizza that were in the fridge.
Redeeming factor: none. I shouldn't have eaten the pizza. End of story.
Not everyday will be perfect, and that's okay. I need to just move on without dwelling on it. Several weeks ago, my imperfections would have been much worse. So maybe that's a redeeming factor in and of itself.
