Monday Motivation

source
I've gotten myself lately into a pattern of getting discouraged when I don't nail a workout or my eating isn't perfect.  It throws me off my focus and keeps me from getting to where I'm trying to go.  I've seen this quote many times but this morning it is practically screaming at me!  Progress is the key!  I'm not going to always have the perfect run...but I am getting closer each time I get out there!  I'm not going to always have the best eats each and every day...but I can choose to dust myself off and do better with the next meal!  Injury will keep me from swinging heavy kettlebells...but I can do other things to continue to work my muscles!  Don't let the quest for perfection keep you from even starting!  Shoot for progress each day...make the best choices you can each day...and one day you will see your hard work!!
Do you ever let the quest for perfection keep you from progressing?
