Is it a good thing to accept that I just didn't feel up to it yesterday?
Is it a cop out not to push through and get the measly steps?
I really don't know. I find myself more and more accepting my limitations; working within them to expand them. This is particularly true with my hips. I had no choice there.
Still, I'd like to think that letting go of the all or nothing mindset; that perfect or fail approach is a sign of growth. Maybe just maybe progress will still be made. It will be slower and harder to measure. (And I like to measure!) I think, however, that the changes will be permanent. Only time will tell.
