Confessions of a slacker!

Hey HH fans, Danielle here. And I have a confession to make…I am a closet slacker. WHAT?! The woman who does it all? YES! But not intentionally! I missed a few weeks blogging here on our HH blog, and then it turned into habit for me to NOT blog, until Marzia reminded me, um, hey, Danielle, where is your blog. So, there I said it…you heard it here first. I AM NOT PERFECT. Let’s talk a little bit more about that. 

You might follow my journey here, or you might also follow me on my own Facebook page, http://facebook.com/fitandfunkywithdanielle. You see me as the girl with the abs or the girl who works out on stage with Shaun T. You see me as the INSANITY Master Trainer who films the INSANITY rounds and travels the country certifying people. You see me as the Beachbody Coach who ranked #5 in the company and quit her teaching job all while being the mother of two girls. You see my Instagram workout videos and think…wow, she is so perfect and that comes so easy and, and and and…. I know…I get messages from you all the time. But I am here to tell you, yet again, I am not perfect. It isn’t always easy. My hair isn’t always brushed. Sometimes I don’t shower all day after a workout. I burn dinner, and yell at people in traffic who drive too slow. My laundry isn’t always done, my bed isn’t always made, and sometimes I choose the drive through over a home cooked meal for my children. Sometimes I modify my workouts, or even skip one. Sometimes I eat a brownie or three, and sometimes I have a glass of wine. I have fat days, bad hair days, and days where I do not feel successful. 

 

But guess what….life isn’t about perfection its about balance. Its about doing what you love and loving what you do. Its about knowing that there is no such thing as perfect. Its knowing that when you kiss your kids good night and tell them you love them, that you mean it, and they know it. Its about knowing that you did your best because your best is all you can do. Its about knowing when to say I am sorry and when to take ownership for slacking. When Marzia asked me about the blog, I didn’t make up a half truth. I was honest….I told her, hey I forgot. And I am sorry. And moving forward I will be better. Gosh, why can’t it always be that simple? But it can be….let’s practice that. 

I WILL BE BETTER

Because each day is a chance to get things right, do them better, and be the best you that you can be. 

Cheers to 2014…the year in which WE WILL BE BETTER! Image
