“Work Hard or Go Home”

I won’t lie, I love looking at Fitspiration. The women have incredible bodies and they do inspire me occasionally. But more often than not, I sit there for hours reading inspirational quotes and looking at incredibly fit women, instead of actually getting up and exercising.
I’m sure you’ll agree this is pretty counter productive. So I came up with a quote to make myself get off the couch and do something instead of searching images to inspire me.
“If I worked out as much as I trawled facebook, Tumblr and Pinterest. I’d be pretty freaken fit”.
I’m no gym junkie but I like exercising because it makes me feel good and helps me deal with stress. The challenge in this day and age is doing it healthy.
I find that looking at ‘Fitspiration’ often makes me feel unacomplished. Where as actually getting up and doing exercise even if it’s for 5 minutes, makes me feel great.
So if you’ve found yourself getting addicted to pinning fitspiration and are not actively inspiring yourself. Get up, turn of the computer and go for a walk. I bet you will feel 100x better that you would after an hour of searching for fitspiration.
Do you find Fitspiration inspiring?
