Move yer bloomin' arse!

Sunday, April 28, 2013

I love My Fair Lady; the blog title is a line from the movie.

As part of the Spring into Summer 5% Challenge we were tasked to :
“Prepare yourself for success by having the words that will move you to action and keep you on track for the 8 Weeks of the 5% Challenge. What can you tell yourself every morning that will give you a sense of purpose for your day? What can you tell yourself when you are thinking of skipping a walk or a workout? Is there something you can tell yourself when you are reaching for that second helping or that cookie?”

So, in addition to words of wisdom from My Fair Lady here are some of my motivational quotes, from the SP resources

Some speak to fitness, some to life in general. In no particular order :

Just keep going

The only real disability is a bad attitude

A great pleasure in life is doing something others say you cannot do

Being defeated is often temporary; giving up makes it permanent

It doesn’t matter how slowly you go as long as you don’t stop

The best years of your life are the ones in which you decide that your problems are your own; you realize you control your own destiny

You are successful the moment you start moving toward a worthwhile goal

Things turn out the best for those who make the best of the way things turn out

Stop searching for strength and willpower…start creating them

You don’t have to go fast, you just have to go

A year from now you will wish you had started today

If it is important to you, you will find a way. If not, you will find an excuse.

And from the patented FFK tough love motivational series :

Suck it up buttercup and do it anyway

    These are great! :)

I like this one in particular... "Don't complain, unless you intend to do something about it"! and... "You only have 1 life, make the best of it"!

Thanks for the insight! emoticon

    "A great pleasure in life is doing something others say you cannot do"

That is one of THE GREATEST pleasures... I love "I told you so" when it's the person that doubted my ability.
