The Poison of Perfection

Perfection Poison

January started great for me, but mid month I started to go back to my old habits. We've talked about doing little things. I know what I want in my routine:

  • Meditation (God time)
  • Affirmations
  • Exercise
  • Water
  • Sleep
  • Food that helps me achieve my goals
  • Taking my Advocare MNS 3 Suppliment

Yet, for some reason, I'm not doing all of these and the one that is mind boggling is taking a supplement. Really? how hard is swallowing a pill? The MNS 3 has a few pills you need to take at certain times, and yet at the end of the day, there is always one package I forgot to take with my lunch.

I decided I would write down all of the things I wanted to accomplish each day into the Way of Life app. I was determined and decided I would start on Sunday.

Here it is Monday, and I didn't do it. I was so pissed. Do I need to make a checklist to remind me to use my checklist? UGH! So my initial reaction so that I could get a perfect week (my goal) was to try again next Sunday. Wait, what?

Yep instead of getting on track on Tuesday, in an effort to have a perfect week, I would wait until Sunday to try to get hyper-focused.

I was being poisoned by the thought of perfection. I noticed how this idea made me waste sic days where I could work on improving my efforts. Why wait until Sunday when I can take another crack at this tomorrow? So I did, and I did.

Don't start “tomorrow” or “next week” or ” (insert day/event, etc) you can start improving you health right now

Advocare Spark Energy and Focus Drinks

Advocare Spark -Mango Strawberry

I love Advocare Stick Packs. They are introducing a new flavor that is pineapple and coconut. I love it, and will be very sad when my free sample runs out. In the meantime, my favorite is Mango Strawberry. Add these to your water and you've got a unique blend of 20 vitamins, minerals, and nutrients that work synergistically to provide a healthy and balanced source of energy.* Spark contains an effective amount of caffeine to give you a quick boost, B vitamins to enhance your body's natural ability to produce and sustain its own energy, and neuroactive ingredients that enhance mental focus and alertness.

I became a distributor cause I love their chocolate protein shakes. When you are a distributor you get deep discounts, and it pays for itself.


Follow Up On Last Weeks Interview With Karina Melvin

Last week I interviewe Karina Melvin and got lots of great feedback. She is from Ireland, and it turns out her books is not available in the US. I let Karina know we are trying to get her book, and she sent this link toa book distributor that should deliver to the US.

Atomic Habits

Thanks to Josh from www.onthebubblepodcast.comhttp://www.onthebubblepodcast.com and www.punchingsideways.com for recommending the book, “Atomic Habits: An Easy & Proven Way to Build Good Habits & Break Bad Ones.” You can get this as an audiobook for free by going to www.logicalloss.com/audible

In the book, the author James Clear talks about how little things can add up to big results. Think of it like compound interest with money. This is what inspired me to create my checklist of atomic habits I want to create. I'm only through three chapters and so far I love it.

One easy step you can do is to ask, “What would a healthy person do?” Then do that. Eventually, YOU will be a healthy person. The other thing that really struck me is when we start doing these small steps, in the long run, they can change how we feel about ourselves.
