Let’s face it, after a relaxing weekend spent enjoying life it can be rather difficult kicking back into top gear when Monday rolls around. To help you overcome your Mondayitis, below are Scorpion’s top 8 fitness motivation quotes to inspire you into the new week!
“The beginning is the most important part of the work.”
Getting started can be the hardest part of a healthy lifestyle change, but it is an essential step. When you are starting a new health and fitness journey it is important to remember that you are not alone. There are plenty of fitness beginners with questions just like you! Reaching out to others who share your journey can help you get an idea of what you can expect along the way, and find the motivation to begin again when a new week starts.
A new week is the perfect time to start fresh. Let’s do this!
“Start every day by thinking of your WHY.”
When you start each day by remembering ‘why’ you want to work out, the ‘how’ becomes much easier. Your reasons for starting must be meaningful to you and be worth the discipline and effort that it will take to work out regularly. Your ‘why’ should inspire you! The word ‘inspire’ comes from a Latin word meaning “to breathe life into” and that is the feeling you should get when you think about your ‘why’.
Reaffirming why you started each day can help you to find the courage to keep going when you don’t feel like it. Remembering your ‘why’ can help you to stay motivated when you’re finding it hard to stick with your training routine or healthy eating habits.
“I am doing this for me.”
Your fitness journey is all about YOU — what other people are doing isn’t important. Fitness can empower you, so embrace the journey and do it for YOU!
“All progress takes place outside your comfort zone.”
The thing about change is that it is never easy. Our bodies and minds will resist change, even when it has many physical and mental benefits. That’s why it is so important to keep on going when you find it hard.
Whether it’s going to the gym and using free weights for the first time, trying a new training style or asking a friend to keep you accountable, taking that step will help to expand your comfort zone. Soon you’ll find that you’re comfortable doing things you’d never dreamed you would do, so don’t give up at the moment that you feel uncomfortable or afraid!
“The moment when you want to quit is the moment when you need to keep pushing.”
If you ever wake up on Monday feeling exhausted before the week has even started, you are not alone! No matter what you did over the weekend, Monday is the perfect time to start over with your health resolutions.
When you feel like giving up, dig deep and find the discipline to push towards your goal. Remember why you started, what you want to achieve and keep on going because it will be worth it!
“It doesn’t get easier, you get stronger.”
You’ve probably heard people say that the exercises you find challenging now will one day be your warm-up. Many women start using one of the SWEAT programs without being able to complete a full push-up. If you are consistent, over time you will see an improvement!
Take the modification option provided in the app to begin with, and after training consistently for a few weeks, try adding a few reps of the standard exercise at the start of each round. Keep working at it, and over time you will see how fitness can transform your life. You’ve got this!
“Do something today you will be proud of tomorrow.”
When you make the choice today to look after your body, work out, eat healthy food and think positive thoughts you are preparing yourself to be the best possible version of yourself tomorrow. Keep raising the bar and taking steps towards a healthier you, and remember that health is the best gift that you can give to yourself!
“You get what you repeat.”
When you do something or think something over and over again, it shapes you. That’s why you should consciously create healthy habits that reflect where you want to end up! Commit to re-organising your routine this Monday and set yourself up to reach your health and fitness goals.
