My blog-friend Emily asked me as a reply to my “Carolyn Workout” posts how I stay so motivated. The truth: Emily, there is no way on planet earth I’m even as close to as motivated as I seem. But I try. Really hard. Sometimes I just think, “I’m going to stay home tonight and do nothing.” Other times I have to force myself up off the couch, close my book I’m using as an excuse, and just do it. Sound familiar.

When I talk myself out of a workout here’s what goes through my mind:

  • I’m too tired.
  • I’m too full.
  • It’s too late.
  • I just don’t want to.

When I think logically and not emotionally about it, here’s the truth.

No one ever regrets a workout. You’re more likely to regret missing it.

And I think that’s the truth for everyone. Here are some motivational pictures/quotes that help me remember why I need to get up offa that thang, and dance till I feel bettah.

Right now, someone busier than I am is fitter than I am.

Enough said for this one.

If you do what you’ve always done, you’ll get what you’ve always gotten.

I need someone to tell me this every. time. I run.


And last, but not least…
