My Favorite Month- long Mantras:
1-Work out because you can (and for all those who cannot because of injuries/disabilities/life limitations).
2-If you look great at the end of your workout, you didn’t do it right!
3-Forget skinny, train to be a fit bad-ass!
4-Working out: first you feel like dying, then you feel reborn.
5-You are one workout away from a great mood!
6-If you worked out when you first thought of it, you’d be done by now!
7-Sweat is fat crying! The towel is your tissue.
8-Work out because your life depends on it!
9-“If it burns, it doesn’t mean you’re gonna die. Get up and TRY” – Pink song
10-“I wish I didn’t work out today” – said no one ever.
11-Surround yourself with positive people. You are the average of the 5 people you hang out with the most.
12-Do something toward your goal every day. A year from now you’ll see what 365 somethings can do.
13-To change your life you need to change your priorities.
14-Don’t stop when you’re tired. Stop when you’re done.
15-You can have results or excuses. Not both.
16-Be a champion!
17-Sitting is the new smoking and strong is the new skinny.
18-We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence is a habit.
19-The only person you should try to be better than is the person you were yesterday.
20-Be and athlete. Any size, age, gender… Decide and become!
21-Do something out of your comfort zone.
22-Most obstales melt away when we make up our minds to walk through them.
23-Eat well, move daily, hydrate often, sleep lots, love your body.
24-Every accomplishment starts with the decision to TRY.
25-Think I’m crazy for working out? You’d see crazy if I didn’t. Cardio = Attitude Adjustment!
26-It’s easier to work out hard than it is to look in the mirror and not like what you see.
27- Show up for yourself and remember who you are.
28- Work out like no one is watching.
29-Today is the perfect day to be who you were always meant to be.
30-Fitness is throwing out your spanks.
31-Ask yourself what makes you come alive – then go do it!
