I Need Motivation Too Sometimes
Monday, June 11, 2012
Truth be told, I've been feeling kind of BLAH ever since the Spring Into Shape Boot Camp Challenge ended. I am shocked at how much just an extra 10-minute exercise/strength training video every single day can change the way my body feels. In addition to my small slide in healthy eating habits, I feel like a huge lazy slob!!! And this doesn't even make any sense. For goodness sake, I ran a 5k race on Saturday! I have run 3-4 times per week for the past three weeks. There is no reason whatsoever that I should be feeling this way!
Still...it is what it is, you know? Because I *feel* gross doesn't mean I stop doing what I know is right. I keep eating healthy and I keep doing my scheduled runs and crosstraining workouts...no matter what.
I am not afraid that I'll give up. But there are times that I even need a little push to get me through a mental slump. And this is one of those times. What motivates me? Well, I know this will sound really silly and cheesy, but I really do get motivated by inspirational quotes and images. That's part of the reason I have so many in my SparkPage photo album. I suppose it makes sense if a picture if worth a thousand words...and images tend to stick in a person's mind.
So, I found some gems for you...and for me today. Tried to steer clear of the tried and true that we've all seen a million times on Pinterest or even on this site. The four that I'm including below are all new to me...so maybe they'll be new to you too. You can bet that these will be floating in my brain when my alarm clock goes off at 6am tomorrow and I head out for my morning run. Enjoy, friends!
