Get Moving Monday

Today's Workout:
8 mile run

Hello Friends and Happy Monday!!
Now that the festivities are over, it's time to get back on the bandwagon and take charge of your fitness. If you're feeling tired and drained, trust me I know how you feel. After working a 40-hour work week in just 3 days, the only thing that crosses my mind is my fluffy bed. But then I remind myself how amazing I will feel when I finish my run. No matter how tired I may feel running gets me moving and makes me feel energized and pumped. Running brings me back to life and makes me feel alive.
It may seem difficult to get moving some days, but let me remind you that you CAN do it! Losing motivation is only a state of mind. When you take charge of your life, your confidence and self-esteem will soar. No matter what your level of fitness is, there is always room for improvement. So refrain from making excuses like, "I don't run fast enough" or "I'm completely out of shape." It doesn't matter where you are at, we all have to start somewhere.
Here are some motivational quotes to get you through the Monday blues and the rest of the work week.

Repeat to yourself: I can do this.
The only person that can set limits on you is YOU.
Don't focus on speed- Focus on finishing.
Don't be afraid of discovering that you just might be a rock star.
The power is inside of you.
Be thankful that you are alive.
Have a fun-fitness Monday!
What are you doing for your fitness today?
I am thankful for being alive and well. I am
thankful for having the ability to run
and be active.

  1. You are such a beautiful and inspirational woman!!! Seeing that you have accomplished many things makes me want to go extra harder in my workout. You rock Erika!!!

  2. I'll be honest I had no intention of getting on the treadmill tonight but you have this way of inspiring (guilting me like my mom would? but in a good way...) me that I did was slow, it was painful and it was a pain in the rump and nothing stellar but its done. And I would have regretted NOT doing it! Thanks for the kick in the pants Erika!

    1. You should be proud of yourself. YOU were ultimately the one that did it. Way to go!

  3. This just totally motivated me to work my butt off in my next training cycle that starts next week! Thanks :)

  4. I really like the last one :) Thanks for sharing these.

    I just need some motivation to keep studying for my final exam tomorrow... I won't have time to workout or go for a run today. Not until I'm done with exams :(

    1. Think about it this way: the faster you're done with your tests, the quicker you'll get out there and run. Focus on the tests first though =) Good luck.
