Fitspiration

 

I love motivational quotes, often times called “fitspiration” when in the realm of health and fitness. They help me on hard days, when I am not feeling very confident, or when I don’t feel like working towards my goals at all. This one in particular is something that has really helped motivate me in tough times:

Not going to lie, there have been times when I have felt like quitting. Between injury and illness setbacks, battling the weather, etc. sometimes it feels easier to throw my hands up and say “forget it, I can’t do this anymore.” Sometimes it takes a few minutes, and sometimes it takes a few days, but I always come back around with some thinking and a lot of praying.

Think about why you started.

I started because I want to live a healthy long life to see my family grow and change

I started because I never thought I could accomplish my goals

I started because it seemed impossible

I started because I am a fighter.

So next time you say it’s too hard, or I can’t do it, or I will never be good enough, remember to think about why you started in the first place, and let it be the motivation that helps you reach your goals.

  1. My favorite motivational quote:

    “All our dreams can come true if you have the courage to puruse them.” – Walt Disney

  2. For I can do everything through Christ, who gives me strength. (Philippians 4:13 NLT)

    Sometimes I need I repeat this over and over!

  3. I’m not sure if this counts as a quote but it always motivates me when I’m struggling through a run. “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Philippians 4:13

  4. “What does not kill us makes us stronger.”

  5. My favorite quote recently is modified from Dori in Finding Nemo: “Just Keep Running…”. Short and to the point. 😉

  6. “The miracle isn’t that I finished. The miracle is that I had the courage to start.” – John “the Penguin” Bingham. Keeps me going every time.

  7. Heather from Running with Sass sent me! 🙂

  8. I think I posted that last one on the wrong page! 🙂
