Commitment and Motivation

I woke up this morning with no idea what to post about today. I've been busy and thus I'm a bit behind in my post line up. I was having a bit of a writer's block until I got on Pinterest this morning. I saw a quote that inspired me and had me thinking.


I think this may have spoken to me because yesterday I skipped out on the gym because it was a rainy day and I just felt like snuggling my honey on the couch while watching a movie. The only problem with me not going to the gym is that I felt SO GUILTY! I made a commitment to myself to go yesterday and I didn't. I know that I don't have to go to the gym everyday, but if I have it planned and I don't go, I feel like I've cheated myself. Does anyone else having this feeling? To make up for this, I woke up at 5:30 a.m. and went to the gym this morning to get in a quick workout to start my day off right. I'm also going to Body Works class with Maria tonight, so I think this morning made up for missing yesterday!

Commitment is the complete key to staying fit and living a healthy lifestyle. I enjoy staying fit, working hard, running and eating right to stay happy! You must be committed to you in order to make it happen! Commit to your life. Commit to your health. Commit to your happiness! Commitment is a struggle in the brain. You must change your mind to change your lifestyle (see picture below). You have to go all in to make it work. One thing that goes hand in hand with commitment is motivation. Motivation drives commitment.Whether it's weight loss, feeling better about yourself, or making a life style change, your goals can serve as great motivation! I find that quotes or mantras also help to motivate me along with my friends, family, healthy living blogs and more!

Here are a few other pins that I found that keep me feeling committed and motivated.
