Get Out of a Rut: Fitness Inspiration to Ignite Your Inner Spark

Hello friends!

Can you believe it’s Sunday already? This week has flown right on by…

Summer is just around the corner, so this week I want to share some fitness inspiration to reignite that inner fire when you need it the most.

It’s frustrating when you are putting in the work and not seeing results, or when you’re injured and activity is limited. Sometimes you lose all motivation – maybe you’re tired, sore, exhausted, just plain busy, or overwhelmed.

We all have days where we second guess ourselves, asking is this worth it? When we would rather have that box of donuts, sit on the couch and watch TV; When  exhausted from all of our daily responsibilities; When the number on the scale isn’t moving or we aren’t seeing the progress that we had envisioned; This list runs on infinitely and it is incredibly easy to talk ourselves out of the workout. Putting it off for a day turns into a week, turns into a month… Suddenly, we are right back where we started.

Before you know it, you hit that brick wall and find yourself stuck – with no visible exit.

What now?

Sometimes you have to carve out your own door, find an alternative path, think outside the box, get creative. Spark your imagination, remember your why, and reignite that fire.

Pick yourself up, dust yourself off, and start again.

What better time than today? It’s a brand new week, a new beginning. New and exciting possibilities and opportunities await you.

Today I am sharing my favorite quotes, affirmations, mantras, and sayings to help inspire creativity, to help you get unstuck and out of that rut.
