I was not my best perfection on the tennis trip, all I did was eat like a pig and watch tennis. Today I was a bit better, but not by much. I did get my exercise in. Monday I start work on my school schedule. Tomorrow is pretty much packed from 6:30am to 10:30pm 

My Best Perfection. 

Monday, April 30, 2012

The chair scrapes as I stand up, nervous I see all the eyes in the circle staring at me. Some are shuffling on their plastic chairs nervously and others seem totally cool with it all. I take a deep breath and say,

"My name is Emma and I am addicted to watching TV."

Ok I am not actually going to AA meetings for a TV addiction, but I mean really how much of America do you think is addicted to TV? The average American watches about 5 hours of TV every day! Just think about all you could do with 5 extra hours a day. For me that would be like 2 hours of diving, an hour of writing, and 2 hours of school!!! That's a whole lot more useful than learning whether Amy or Clara is going to win top model. Now don't get me wrong I’m not saying that you should cut out all TV out of your diet. Personally I am limiting it to 3 TV shows a week. Much better than my old 3 TV shows a day and that was a short day.

My Best Perfection

Now that my room is clean it’s time to start on my first goal. I started diving when I was 12 years old so about 4 years ago :) It is and always will be my passion! I have the best coach in the world!! His name is Moses and believe me this guy is amazing!!! I am not very talented when it comes to diving, but dedication gives me an edge over the other competitors. Well that and having Moses as a coach. Dive has become my life!! That is why my first goal is by far my favorite:

"Become a College Diving Legend"

Take two month break from dive :( during this time add to exercise:

Bike riding hour every day
Swimming one hour everyday
Tennis an hour and a half everyday unless raining or otherwise unable to play. (If so add 30 min to swimming)

Step Two
Place at state senior year.

Going to DU under "become successful real estate business woman." But soon…

My Best Perfection

The first step to my best perfection is cleaning my room which is a complete mess!!! I would post pictures but I must admit to being too embarrassed. I am going to tear everything out of it and try to store away as much as possible. Pretty much, I want to minimize everything I own down to the things that I actually use. Like the things that will help me accomplish my goals. Jillian Michaels says in her book Unlimited that the living space around us can mentally hinder us from our goals if it is a pigsty. Thus, I shall change my pigsty into a productive work place.

What is perfection? Is it a beautiful face? Success at work? A boyfriend? All of the above? To me perfection is a being the best you that you can be. I am not perfect. I am flawed, but I will always be flawed. I want to try to be the best me I can be. I have an idea of what the perfect life for me is. Do you? Right now I am an average student, of average beauty, and an average diver. The only notable thing about me is my determination. I want to change that. Here in short is what I want out of my life:

To be a college diving legend.
To be married to a great guy with NO kids.
To run a successful business in some branch of real estate.
To be as fit and pretty as I can be.
To have some kind of writing career
To be a kind person.

I am going to set up a plan to get these things, and this blog is how I am going to keep myself accountable. To myself and whoever reads it...that is if someone reads it.

Perfection. Something we all want but can never attain. So what do we do? Give up? I don't think so. This blog is the story of my journey to attain the impossible, perfection.
