November Fitness Challenge: Motivational Quotes #mondaymotivation

good-day

Today’s challenge is to post 5 motivational quotes. I picked these quotes as they do inspire me and remind me that I am in charge of my life and how I chose to live it. I’m only human so I do make mistakes. As long as you learn from your mistakes, then you are making progress. The trick is to stop making these same mistakes over and over. I make excuses like so many of us do, but I like reading these quotes as they help to keep me accountable for my actions and the choices I make. The first one is one I try to live by on a daily basis. Each day will not be good, but it’s a great reminder to always count your blessings. I am thankful for my health, my family, my house, and many more. The true key to success is to remember how blessed you are even if you can’t see the light at the end of the tunnel. I have had many trials and tribulations in my life but I always remember how much I do have to be thankful for.

This is one I also remind myself that I am not dieting but changing my eating habits and lifestyle permanently. It’s not a race either so I am trying to pace myself and each small step is a success to my overall goal of being healthier. stopgivingup

These last two quotes are so true forĀ  as I battle anxiety so I do have to push myself out of my comfort zone. I went to Colorado this May with my husband and visited my best friend who lives in Vail Valley. I have never been to the mountains so I was shocked that she literally lived in the mountains. It was an amazing experience but also scary for me at the same time. I didn’t have a chance to go skiing as it was May, but I did a little bit of hiking and really pushed myself out of my comfort zone. I can’t wait to go back and hopefully next year. If I hadn’t pushed out of my comfort zone, then I would have missed a wonderful trip and to see the Rocky Mountains. That is a memory I will never forget.
