This is one (out of two) of the most effective quotes I ever saw about exercise/healthy eating. It speaks to me on so many levels. I think I was a cat in my previous life. I like to sleep and eat. AND NOT go to the gym. But I go anyway and this quote is partly responsible.
I can think of a thousand reasons why I don’t want to go exercising: I’m too tired/cranky/not in the mood/have a muscle ache/have really important things to watch on Netflix/it’s cold outside/it’s warm outside/ I deserve my rest . In other words: BLABLABLA.
To be honest, I don’t get in the flow of a workout, don’t necessarily get happier when I run 5 kilometres, but I’m always glad when it is DONE. The feeling that I went despite the BLABLABLA is awesome.
And yes the thought of having a sparkling bikini body is also appealing.
You want to know the other quote that helps to keep me in line?
If you’re not hungry enough to eat an apple.
You are not hungry.
You are bored.
I am a very bored person.
