I knew that my Nutrition was not what it should have been today for many reasons. I barely slept, had a fight with hubby and the doctors were poking and proding with my eye because I tore it scratching from the Conjunctivitis I had for 3 weeks.
Although I made mistakes on the Nutrition, I was motivated to do well on exercise. My gear up lately has been putting on some workout clothes that fit well, very hard to come by these days after losing close to 100 lbs. As soon as I got the gear on and stepped on the Elliptical, I was in the zone. I love music so I was singing along with my iPod and feeling proud that I was making the effort to do something good for myself today. I followed through with my motivation to get the workout done!
After 274 calories burned in 30 minutes, legs and abs done on the exercise ball, I at least had one aspect of good health for the day. We will have "those" days sometimes when we don't do well for ourselves in some form or another. The important point is to get back on track as quickly as possible.
My outlook on having a bad day is that you can always turn it into something better. I am feeling proud of the workout and moving on from that bad start I had to the day. After getting over 2 weeks of the flu, this is my 2nd complete workout and I feel very happy to be getting back to adequate fitness. When life knocks you down, crawl your way back to good health!
Do you have the motivation and do the follow through?
I found this on someone else's spark page and it is a great article, check it out:

Eating is necessary for survival but there are many reasons that people eat. Some people's brains don't see eating as just for survival physically, they use it to survival mentally. Over time we have not evolved metabolically to match the mental evolution of career changes, relationships and a more sedentary lifestyle. Instead of fixing the mental dependence on food, people are working on changing the physical.
The mind is much more difficult to change than the physical body but many people struggle with the opposite: changing the physical body. If we can change the way we think about ourselves and our issues, we CAN make the change to the physical body. When we change our minds, we CAN change our bodies! I was able to drop 187 lbs in 2 years because I changed my mind about who I really was and what I was worth and could do! My mind went back to the same line of thinking and so did my body! I had to set my mind back to the change I had made before to change the physical once again.
In order to maintain health, it starts with our mind and transcends to the body. Seek motivation, seek positive people, seek support and seek health knowledge. When we find ourselves lost, we must seek to change ourselves by looking to others who have changed. Eliminating contact with people who cause conflict in our mind can be a big help. Change what you can and cope with things you can't change in an effective way.
We must eat for survival and we must think that we will survive!
