We all need a little positive reinforcement every now and again.
Whether you're trying to drop a few pounds or looking to train for your first 5K, embrace these 24 motivating health quotes and sayings to keep you on track.
Love your body
Having confidence and positive mental health about your body is a great way to stay motivated about your workout regimen.
So, silence that inner critic and don’t be afraid to strut your stuff at the gym.
Eating the right combination of superfoods, such as fresh produce, whole grains, lean protein, and low-fat dairy will give your body the energy it needs, protect you from chronic diseases, and may even whittle your waist.
In addition, giving your fitness routines the time and dedication needed will also help speed your fitness results.
Mind over matter
Sometimes, your brain can be your own worst enemy. Keep yourself mentally sharp (and thinking positive thoughts) by snacking on nuts, adopting a Mediterranean cooking style, and getting plenty of sleep.
Work up a sweat
Don’t be afraid of a little sweat during your workout.
Be prepared by staying hydrated and choosing the right pre- and post-workout liquids to fuel your body and help your muscles recover, such as water, sports drinks, or chocolate milk.
Hard work pays off
The key to working out to lose weight is to actually stick to your workout. It’s easier to dedicate yourself to a fitness activity when it’s something you enjoy.
Tone up your way by mix and matching these easy moves.
Healthy food, happy body
That craving for a bag of Doritos can be satisfied with the click of a vending machine button. But, the feeling after eating them might not be worth it.
Remember your goals
We've all had moments of weakness during a workout or while trying to adhere to a healthy meal plan. The trick is to remember those key reasons you started in the first place.
No more mental games
Your body knows it can do it, but sometimes it takes your brain a little longer to process the information.
Don't let anything or anyone—even yourself—stand between you and your goals.
Work hard at your dreams
Don’t be afraid to shoot for the moon—even if you fail—and tackle your goals. The feeling you’ll get once you accomplish them is so much better than the feeling you'll get letting your dreams pass you by.
