This morning I’ve been having very little to no motivation to conquer my five mile run that is on my workout agenda.  My mind has been going from trying to find any excuse not to do it, to telling myself I should but then trying to decide whether I should go outside or on the treadmill, and then repeating those thoughts… all of which are stalling the run, of course.


I decided I needed some extra motivation, so I naturally went to Pinterest for some help…


just run!


Better sore than sorry.


Working out feels better

With that, I’m off to put on my workout clothes and tennis shoes, and go run my little heart out.  Catch ya later!

    Honestly, the fact that I’m signed up for a race is the only thing that motivates me haha. Since I know I have to run a half-marathon in a couple of months, I know that I HAVE to be training, if I want to actually run the whole thing on the day of the event! It’s also motivating to know that I’m running with a friend, and I really don’t want to slow her down on race day!

    I did 5 miles on the treadmill this morning. So far, I’m really liking the new shoes/inserts! :)

    My motivation usually comes from knowing how defeated and guilty I feel if I don’t get a workout in. Usually once I’ve started my daily workout I never regret!

    I love this! I always look through my pinterest fitness motivation and goals when I don’t want to move to do a workout! It always works!
    Another one I’ve heard that I really like is… I don’t ever regret a workout, only the lack of one. Something along those lines! ha
