Do your best and forget the rest.

More writing than usual in this post! "Do your best and forget the rest." That's the motto I've been living by the past couple of weeks all thanks to my new friend Tony Horton and his P90X workout. Alex and I decided to take a shot at this extreme home workout program to get in better shape. It involves a variety of exercises. Pull ups, push ups, lunges, cardio, lifting, abs, kick boxing, yoga, and much much more. It covers everything. And every day is different.

Yes, I had days where I couldn't move. Literally, it hurt to type. And yes, I thought the people on the video were insane for not taking as many breaks as I was. Then I realized it was only day 2 of the 90 days, and in time I would be able to keep up with the 349 ab reps... (yeah right!!!). But Tony reminds me to "Do your best, and forget the rest." And that's why I haven't regretted it one bit. Because I know in time, if I do my best now rather than giving up too soon, I'll have a greater outcome in the end.

Alex and I are on day 16. 74 more days to go. It's been invigorating. My energy has increased, my mind is clear, and I feel more driven than ever. I'm even applying "Do your best, and forget the rest" to my life outside of the extreme home workout. I always tend to strive for perfection. While it's a good quality to have, it's also my flaw. I find it usually holds me back, because it takes me longer to get there. I'm my biggest critique and set my standards way too high, and often feel defeated if I don't reach that point of perfection. I have this list of goals for both my personal life and business, and I'm coming to the realization that I need to just DO MY BEST and forget the rest. 2011 is my year to get past my flaw. Here's to doing YOUR best!
