Pin Down The Motivation

Hey friends! Happy FRIDAY!

Thanks for all your kind comments on yesterday’s very honest post–not an easy thing to do when you feel like a jerk, ya know?!

So on a lighter note, I thought I would share with you the many hours minutes I’ve spent pinning down some motivation to work harder, lift heavier, and get fitter. I find it inspiring to see others who have worked hard, or even just to read some quotes that resonate with me.

It motivates ME to get fitter too –but in a very non-competitive way. It’s like their hard work makes me think, “I can work hard too.” Kinda cool how that works, eh?! (P.s. it’s easier not to judge and/or compare when you hardly know a person, too!)

And I thought it’d be fun to share with you all :)

By the way, if you’re not on Pinterest, I would join the bandwagon (Janetha describes perfectly HOW to do it). It is seriously fun to check out your future mansion, brand new wardrobe, or glittery shoes that you’ll probably have in a couple of million years.

Oh, and it’s slightly addictive…..

…but not too bad. The good outweighs the bad, my friends. There are ALL kinds of fitness motivation on that site–so today I pin down the motivation for you (well, a smidgen of it)!

You’re welcome.

Oh yes.

So grateful I have a healthy body.

Right in there!

Make ’em cry, baby.




Yes, yes it does.

Have a very FIT Friday :)

P.P.S. for constant fitness motivation, follow me on Pinterest.

P.P.P.S Have an AWESOME day!

What are some of YOUR favorite pins to motivate you–quotes or pics?? Which of these that I’ve pinned resonates with YOU the most?! What are YOUR Friday plans?! <—dinner for a sister’s birthday and another sister coming into town! Wahoo! + BodyPUMP
