Monday Motivation: July Edition

Happy Monday! This week is a full week for me packed with school work, prepping for student teaching, field hockey games, and working.  Lately I've been noticing that lots of bloggers (and non-bloggers) have been on a fitness kick. Lots of us are on a self improvement mission for various reasons.

Recently I started eating better and working out more. It makes me feel so much better when I incorporate healthier habits into my life. I do have to say that I definitely am not the healthiest person 24/7 and I am learning to not beat myself about it. Some days I'm better about not making myself feel guilty than others.  It's important to acknowledge that nobody is perfect and it won't kill you to have a cheat day every once in awhile.

On those days when I am beating myself up, or I don't feel like working out I like to look for inspiration. Most of my inspiration comes in the form of pinterest quotes. The positivity just helps me to move forward and keep progressing.

  1. Love this motivation! I just got back from vacation so I definitely need to get back into eating healthy and working out again!


  2. This is such great motivation! I'm just inspired by how great it makes me feel to be active and healthy. It's hard to get up to go run in the morning, but the pretty sunrise makes it worth while!


  3. I always envision what I want then tell myself to work to get it! These are great motivators also.
