A Perfectly Imperfect Day

I received an email from my friend, Debby yesterday. At the bottom of her email was the most amazing quote!

“Being happy does not mean everything is perfect. It means that I have decided to look past the imperfections.”

How true is that? I think a lot of us (myself included) sometimes have to have the stars aligned to be 100% content. That shouldn’t be so. And like Mama Pea says, nothing is perfect, and the word perfect could even be so much as damaging.

Yesterday morning when I woke up, I noticed my knee was feeling much better after a good foam rolling last night. Not perfect, but had improved. So I looked past it and met my girl Heidi at the gym. I ran a three mile tempo run according to my training plan (taper week!) chatted some more, and headed home.

To an AMAZING fitnessista breakfast cookie.


An irregular and imperfect shaped b-cookie at that 😉

And then I thought of something even more amazing.

Add raspberries


Smoosh berries to make a jam, and have a bit of raspberry with each bite.


This picture does it no justice. It was imperfect because it had to end, haha. I looked past it…

To lunch! Well the first half anyway.


Romaine + spinach + cuke + mushroom + black beans + a dressing of apple cider vinegar/EVOO/stevia/sea salt. Yum!

Then I was off to meet someone for a lunch meeting at a different gym, and came back to lunch part 2/dessert which was protein cookie dough. It’s ridiculous, but I can’t get enough. I have a feeling this will be one of those foods I burn myself out on, though. My tummy was rearing to go throughout the afternoon, and I also had a Clif MOJO and  a mini raw revo bar.

After work, I had a couple of client appointments. Before heading out, I prepped some veggies for dinner:


And then trained a couple clients, and made it home in time to cook up a quick dinner and watch GLEE (which was much better than last week’s episode, woo hoo!) and got to cookin’


Leftover baked tofu, sweet potato rounds, and Brussels sprouts:




Can’t beat it.

And vino!


All in all, it was a very happy day. There may have been some instances that didn’t go as planned, but it was a sunny day, nothing horrible happened, I experienced a good opportunity (my lunch meeting,) and I got to be with family and friends today!

What a perfectly imperfect day 🙂
