Today is one of those days.... and I didn't even realize it until I looked at my nutritional tracker . . . I'm already at the low end of my day's total. But I have to say that I haven't eaten any junk today , or anything off my normal plan . . . just too much of it.

Didn't realize until a few minutes ago that today is my mom's 83rd birthday. Due to some family 'issues', we're not on good terms so I can't call her, but I did send her a birthday card. I hate that.

It may sound funny, but when I am having a difficult day I look outside of myself for help... reading, writing, making a phone call, anything to get a different perspective and stop the negativity in my head.

Love the elliptical !!! I listen to music and it distracts from the aches and pains :)

And oh, yes! Doesn't that full-length mirror work wonders for motivation!

I think about my dad. He passed away in February and I know he wouldn't want me to quit. Especially if it involves me being a healthier person

I'm doing this for me
and I'm doing this for my daddy.

I listen to audiobooks while I'm on the treadmill or elliptical. It helps the time pass and sometimes I stay on a little longer just to finish a chapter.

I like to post pictures and sayings that motivate me all over the house where I'll see them. Albeit, sometimes even those need will power added to them, but if I picked the RIGHT images for my goals and weaknesses, it works!

I get on Spark, and I blog. or I make a deal with myself - like today, I did NOT want my water...so I told myself, if I could get through 2 glasses of water, I would make some hot tea. Well, I got my water in, and then didn't want the tea! emoticon I'm still only halfway to my daily goal, but considering I was having trouble getting glass #1 down, I'm pretty happy so far. :)

Share your tricks with everyone! :)
