Hard Work ALWAYS Pays Off

I LOVE this image from MotiveWeight! It reads: Nothing in this world is handed to you. You have to go out and get it! Nobody said it would be easy, but hard work ALWAYS pays off. It is SO true! There is only one, small, problem… There have been times when I thought I was [...]

Straight Ahead One Direction

While I was exercising the other day, Straight Ahead by Tube and Berger [iTunes link] came on. Here’s a video for the song: I have NO idea what the song means, but it was very helpful to get through a running interval that day. The lyrics were so helpful to me, that I made a [...]


I love this simple animated GIF I found on work sweat achieve the other day. It reads: #IWill That pound sign (#) in front of the words, IWill is a hashtag and it’s used to mark things on Twitter and Facebook. In particular, it’s used by Under Armour Sports Clothing to advertise their products. I [...]

Running Is My Partying

I saw this motivational poster on Fitness, Health, and Confidence, but it wasn’t quite right for me. It reads: Working out is my partying. Protein shakes are my beer. Preworkouts are my shots. The pump is my buzz. And the pain the next morning is my hangover. I don’t drink protein shakes and I have [...]

All Our Dreams Can Come True If We Have The Courage to Pursue Them

This motivational poster from MotiveWeight really inspired me. It reads: All our dreams can come true if we have the courage to pursue them. I think I like it so much because the fat girl is pretty and looks happy. You can be pretty, happy and still want to pursue your dreams, even if your [...]

PostSecret: I Still Don’t Know How To Ride A Bike

This postcard from PostSecret made me so sad. It reads: I still don’t know how to ride a bike. When I read it, I suddenly remembered all the exhilarating times I’ve had on a bike: When I was eight years old and first learned how to ride a bike by falling over and over until [...]

Time To Photoshop My Life

I ADORE this motivational poster I found on MotiveWeight! It reads: Time to photoshop my life. Touch up the edges, adjust the tones, blur out the background, focus on me, and crop people out. I really wish meditation worked like this for me, especially the “crop people out” concept. My mind is so fleeting that [...]

Adam Levine Loves Lettuce

I love this animated GIF that I found on Turning day-dreams, into reality. It makes me laugh to see Adam Levine attack a head of lettuce like a huge bunny or maybe a hamster. It reminds me of that Chris Traeger GIF: I need to get some more fresh lettuce in my life. For the [...]

You’re Worth More Than Gold

In my workout playlist, I have a song by Britt Nicole called Gold [iTunes link]. I absolutely adore this song and it made me feel so good when I was exercising. I love the lyrics of the chorus: This, this is for all the girls, boys all over the world Whatever you’ve been told, you’re [...]

I Will Beat Her

When I saw this motivational poster on Funeral For My Fat the other day, I didn’t like it at first. I read the first few words: I will beat her. I will train harder. I will eat cleaner. It sounded so competitive to me. There have been times when I have not liked how someone [...]

Five Steps To Avoid Over-Eating

I saw this infographic on Fitness, Health, and Confidence and I wanted to post it here so I always have it handy. There is some great advice there: Concentrate – You can cut your food intake in one sitting by 18% simply by turning off the TV and sitting at the dinner table, rather than [...]

It Only Takes One Person to Change Your Life

I saw this motivational poster on Loving My Body Through All the Good and Bad the other day and it really made me think. It reads: It only takes one person to change your life: YOU. When I first read it, I thought of all the people who have helped me in my journey. My [...]

Motivational MP3 Clips

Over the last few years, I’ve linked to little YouTube videos with some motivational talk. Just last week, I downloaded them as MP3s to put on my workout mix. I wrote this entry a while ago about Finding Nemo and how motivational Dori is: Starling Fitness – Just Keep Swimming Here is the MP3 of [...]

My Goal Is To Run Around The World

I can’t stop thinking about Chris Traeger and his goal to run to the moon. That’s a little much for me, but I can envision me running around the world. Heck, when I look at my Runkeeper stats, I have already run 1,817 miles. And that only counts only the runs that I have logged [...]

My Goal Is To Run To The Moon

I loved this image set that I saw on Funeral For My Fat the other day. It reads: I have run 10 miles a day, every day, for 18 years. That’s 65,000 miles… a third of the way to the moon. My goal is to run to the moon. Here’s the video of it and [...]

Success Trains. Failure Complains.

I love this motivational poster that I saw on work sweat achieve the other day. It reads: Success Trains. Failure Complains. When I think of all the ways I’ve failed and then complained about how my body is shaped because of that failure, I need to hang my head in shame. From now on, every [...]

My Motivational Shrine

The other day, I printed up all the little motivational posters that I have found all over the web and put them on a foam board. I then put it up on the wall right in front of the treadmill, so when I’m running, I can read them. Here’s a picture of it. Click it [...]

Even If You Fall On Your Face

I love this motivational poster I found on Healthy is Classy. It reads: Even if you fall on your face, you’re still moving forward. Victor Klam It made me chuckle when I read it, but more importantly, it’s TRUE. It reminds me of a song that was recommended to me by a friend called Moving [...]

You ARE Doing It

I haven’t tried this idea from MotiveWeight. It reads: Instead of telling yourself you CAN do it, tell yourself you ARE doing it. I’ve gotten a lot of steam from “I think I can.” There were so many times when I was riding my bike, trying to get it up that huge hill near my [...]

Learn To Say No To Your Cravings And Your Mind

I really like this poster from Make It Count. It reads: Learn to say no not only to your cravings, but to the part of your mind that thinks it’s okay to give up. That part of my mind that thinks it’s okay to give up is pretty strong. It has given up on Weight [...]
