Motivation for Me…Motivation for You

by tinareale on May 17, 2012

The days keep passing and the race keeps sneaking up on  me. Thank you all so much for the support in the past few days. I continue to feel more and more excited for Sunday! A  little extra motivation never hurts, though. Here is some I have found in the past few days. Motivation for  me, and perhaps for you too. Smile




Your Turn – What could you use some extra motivation for today? This week? This month?

I’m so proud of you that you’re doing this! You’re going to be awesome!

Oh you KNOW I love these posts!

I could use some motivation to fake it til I make it when it comes to loving my body. I have my really awesome days and I feel so good about myself, but every now and again I get down on myself and in a negative place. I am refusing to go to that feeling like crap place/taking it out on myself/missing out cycle. With a beautiful, warm, sunny weekend ahead with plans to go out and do things (requiring wearing shorts, dresses, bathing suits, etc.) ahead, I need to remind myself: life is now, not five pounds from now! my body is perfect the way it is! Sorry for sorting this out as a comment on your blog! Looks like your question was enough to motivate me… :)

No, sort it out! That’s what the blog community is – a place to share and support. And YES – you are beautiful and I hope you enjoy every moment of this upcoming weekend.

I am so excited for you!! I can’t wait to hear how it goes!! I could use some extra motivation to not go crazzzzy during the last month of school. My third graders are getting restless! :)

I was up until 2am working… I could use motivation not to face plant on my computer right now. :)

So excited it’s almost here!!!! I can’t wait to hear all about your conquering this race!

So excited to see how much you rock your marathon on Sunday!

8 Tiff @ Love Sweat and Beers May 17, 2012 at 8:51 am

Not being able to run right now is all the motivation I need. There’s nothing like someone or something telling you NO to make you want to go do it!

9 Lindsay @ In Sweetness and In Health May 17, 2012 at 9:09 am

You are going to do awesome this Sunday!! Love the Dr. Seuss quote :)

10 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats May 17, 2012 at 9:13 am

I love dr. seuss quotes! You’re going to do great! When I get freaked out I try to not think about it and just focus on what i’m doing right now!

11 Lori Lynn May 17, 2012 at 9:14 am

Gotta love Dr. Seuss! Reminded me of the movie The Lucky One, Zac Effron quoted Dr. Seuss- “Sometimes, the questions are complicated, and the answers are simple.”

12 Kaelin May 17, 2012 at 9:59 am

Thanks Tina!!! Love the Dr. Seuss quote! Perfect for all kinds of events.

Good luck at your race, I know you are going to kill it!!! Enjoy every minute!

13 Sue @ Sue In Training May 17, 2012 at 10:28 am

Thanks a lot for the extra boost of motivation! That’s exactly what I need right now. I’m going to race a 10k tomorrow and getting a little nervous.
Good luck for your race, too!

14 Rebecca @ Miss Magnolia Munches & Moves May 17, 2012 at 10:30 am

Oooohhh! That made me want to go for a run!

I love motivational quotes. So much so that that’s what my post was this morning too! :)

24 Amanda @ Diary of a Semi-Health Nut May 18, 2012 at 12:13 am

Good luck on your marathon Tina!! I am running my first half Sunday and love this motivational page. :-)

25 Leonor @FoodFaithFitness May 18, 2012 at 7:20 am

Love these! I need some motivation to get me through field day at my son’s school today!

Great motivation! These kind of quotes make me smile, especially Dr. Sues ones- what a wise, wise man! His rhyming quotes just have a way to make you feel like you’re special and perfect no matter what. Everyone could use a little encouragement on a daily basis, especially if you don’t have someone in your life to tell you how great you are everyday. I always find it interesting when I see “Just Do It” advertisements. I learned about the ad campaign for Nike and how they put it together, and it was a very inspiring and unique campaign that went beyond trying to sell athletic gear, but actually ended up being something even bigger than what people thought ads could or should do. It inspired people to go out and do the things they wanted without hesitation-even citing a few instances where some women wrote to Nike and said “I finally got the confidence to leave ‘him’ “. Pretty cool!

Good luck and those are some great motivators!
