PERFECTIONISM

Self Love

Over the last decade, we have coached over 1,000 women and have found a certain mindset to be one of the greatest roadblocks between women and their success and happiness.

per·fec·tion·ism | Noun: refusal to accept any standard short of perfection.

This mindset usually plays out in one of two ways. Either a woman will self-sabotage when something doesn’t go as planned; “Well I already ate a doughnut for breakfast, might as well eat junk food the rest of the day.”

OR, it will present as a woman who really is doing everything “right,” but they can’t seem to give themselves credit for their efforts and instead constantly put themselves down for not being even “better” which can make the process wholly frustrating and eventually lead them to quit.

Picture this…

You’re tracking your macros, getting your training in, excelling in your career, academic studies, or even stay-at-home-momming and still squeezing in some time for self-care. Despite everything you’re getting done, you can’t stop feeling like you should and could be doing even MORE.

Being driven is A great quality and one that ALL of our Team Fitbliss gals possess. We believe that it’s one of the reasons that we have such an amazing organization. However, it’s important to remember that perfectionism with your program (or even your day to day life) is impossible. Things come up. Life happens. And as much as we may want it to, everything won’t always go as planned.

Life (and fitness programs) are not black and white. Rather than getting stuck on one roadblock, it’s important to take the time to zoom out and view the bigger, long term picture! Be adaptable and consistent with your efforts over time, but also remember not to put so much pressure on being absolutely perfect that you fall apart if you can’t be.

At the end of the day, being 80% perfect 100% of the time for 6 months will far outweigh being 100% perfect for 1 month.

Let go. Jump in. Be in the process with us and use each mistake as an opportunity to learn and improve instead of believing the lie that mistakes make you less than as a woman or an athlete.
