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.

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!

My stress levels are way high right now and haven't been logging anything! But DH bought me an elliptical trainer and it and I are becoming fast friends. Exercise has become my go to instead of food. Plus I water by keeping a glass by me at all times!
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! 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! :)
