Thank goodness for auto insurance! Needless to say, the boy has learned a whole lot about responsibility from his decision to not notify the police of the accident.
Note to all of my friends and anyone that I don’t know who is reading this blog: I assumed my child understood that no matter what, when there is an accident he must report it to the police. Don’t make the assumption that your kids know this.
Explain to them that no matter what, it matters when it comes down to who pays the bill for repairs. I’ve raised my kids with the understanding that in every situation they have choices and no matter what choice they make, they must be prepared to handle the consequences The boy is better for the experience although his summer will be spent paying off the deductible debt he owes me.
I have been sitting here thinking about the rather crazy week I’ve had. I’ve managed to get all but one of my workouts in. I do intend to make up that workout at some point this weekend. I usually take both days as active rest days. I’m going to have some pull-up skill work and 10 x 100m sprints. That ought to work me over pretty good and then I intend to stand-up paddle board if the mound of laundry will allow for it.
My eats have been pretty close to 90% clean which I’m ok with. I’ve run the gamut of the eat bad, feel bad, eat bad cycle and then transitioned over to the perfectionist cycle of 100% clean 100% of the time and plenty more phases smashed between the two extremes.
These phases I now see very clearly and understand how they came about. It has only been since I realized the difference between 90% and 100% is minimal in terms of my results that I’ve become more comfortable. Now my body, mind and soul are a lot happier when I selectively choose my 10% meals.
I do believe that 80% clean eats is a good solid goal for everyone. I’m personally not as comfortable with that being my choice. I prefer to keep a slightly tighter reign because I am more comfortable with that structure.
For those struggling to find balance out there, it’s doable. Just be patient with yourself and don’t be afraid to fall down from time to time. Just don’t stay down because no-one will come along and pick you up. You have to do that for yourself.
Have a great weekend!
