Awesome Early Mother's Day Present and Motivation

Saturday, May 03, 2014

A crucial part of my following a healthy lifestyle plan is looking at my motivation photos every day. I have some on my goal board on my start page and I have them on my laptop, too. My favorite one of all is one I got from Joyinky and it is a picture of her and her dog in a field with her own words written on it. It has more meaning because it is real life from someone who has walked the walk. (And hooped the hoop?).They say a picture is worth a thousand words and it is true.
I wanted to have more motivation pictures that meant something to me. My daughter took pics of me at the beach (this, in itself was difficult- I think a lot of running pictures have got to be faked).

And then she wrote captions in pretty lettering. I gave her the captions.

I took some of her, but she didn't do them yet. I wonder whether she read my blog where I commented that I might get the pics by next year! Anyway, I got a great gift!!! And I happen to know that I might get a pickle ball racquet, too. Does it get any better?

    That is a lovely gift from your daughter. I also use pictures for inspiration on a daily basis. I think personalizing the motivational images with you in it, is even more beneficial. What a great idea. I may work on one of my own.

    I love your photos and your quotes. I've been meaning to do something similar, but I haven't made the time yet. I remind myself to RUN HAPPY often, especially the days I'm worried about my pace. :-)

    Very nice pictures of you, and love your captions. What a lovely gift from your daughter!

P.S. I agree the pictures of models walking and running are made with techniques that don't involve walking or running.
