Just so you don’t think I’m infallible (you did, didn’t you (<:), I need to make another confession, in the interest of full disclosure:
As I’ve said before, I try my best to do right, eat right, buy right… but sometimes, like last night, I just phone it in.
Yes, that’s right, I ordered a pizza.
Not an organic pizza. Not even a whole wheat one. In fact, it was a decidedly UN-PC pizza. Cheese, sauce and God only knows what else was in there.
Frankly, the fact is that there isn’t an upscale, “healthy-type” pizza anywhere in several delivery zones of my apartment (though I’m certain they exist somewhere further downtown, and probably cost thrice, but whatever).
My family was cranky and impatient, we all had a long and frantic week, and I was at the end of my rope. We ate in an exhausted hush..then I slunk off to bed knowing that, though I’m not a perfect mom, I am a human one.
And hey, that’s sort of an important point here too: we live in the real world and frankly, relentless perfectionism is what puts many people off of even trying things like a healthy lifestyle. Hopefully someday soon, this whole endeavor will be easier and less expensive.
But in the meantime, if you do the best you can most of the time, then cutting yourself some slack when you need to is really, in the BIG scheme of things, not so bad.
So go ahead, cut yourself some slack…
