Need Some Motivation?

in All Posts

Ah.  Monday.  You come again.  Just like clockwork.  Smile


Yogurt mess:


Vanilla Greek yogurt

Raw oats

Sesame-seed cashews

I find that if there is any day I need a little extra boost, it’s Monday.  So here are my favorite recent pins from that relate to healthy living motivation.


Because if a good quote doesn’t kick me into gear, nothing will!  Happy Monday!  (The last one is my favorite.)

    I know you’re self-employed, but it is a federal holiday for many of us, thanks to MLK.

    • Caitlin January 16, 2012, 11:28 am

      I know 🙂 Yay MLK! Too bad that I haven’t had MLK day off in 6 years (even when I was employed by seomeone else….). Everyone should get it off!

  • Khushboo January 16, 2012, 11:28 am

    Pinterest is a goldmile of motivation!

  • Amber @ Busy, Bold, Blessed January 16, 2012, 11:39 am

    I definitely don’t have off and this Monday motivation is perfect! I loooove Pinterest, just started following you 😀

    Those are all such great motivational sayings!

  • Meg @ Runridelove January 16, 2012, 12:10 pm

    I like the first one the best! But anything with a dinosaur joke is awesome in my book.

  • Kelly January 16, 2012, 12:29 pm

    My favorite is, “it doesn’t matter how slow you go as long as you don’t stop!” That was my manta this morning while I was in jump roping hell. How do little kids jump rope for hours? How?

  • Jordan January 16, 2012, 12:32 pm

    Thanks for the inspirational words! They definitely helped get me going at work on a day most people have off.

  • JenRD January 16, 2012, 12:37 pm

    Where do you get those cashews? They look sooo good, and I have not seen them anywhere?
    I wish I could get on Pinterest, but I signed up weeks ago, and never received an invitation!

    • Greta @ Staying Lost January 16, 2012, 12:44 pm

      I believe they’re from Trader Joe’s. You can get almonds there with the same coating too. They’re delicious!

  • Greta @ Staying Lost January 16, 2012, 12:43 pm

    I have that first image on a t-shirt! I love wearing it to the gym.

  • Annette @ EnjoyYourHealthyLife January 16, 2012, 12:47 pm

    I have a LOT of these on my pinboard too 🙂 Wahoo!

    LOVE those cashews from TJs–thanks to you!!!

  • Kaitlyn January 16, 2012, 1:14 pm

    Love the motivation. It sent me on the way to my successful 6 mile run.

  • Sophie @ threetimesf January 16, 2012, 1:20 pm

    I was just looking for some motivation to get my ass to the gym – so thanks for this! Off I go 🙂

  • Allison January 16, 2012, 1:43 pm

    I love motivational quotes. I especially like the one with the dinosaur picture, lol!

  • Lindsay @ Salt, Sun & Sanity January 16, 2012, 2:56 pm

    I love all of these so much! If this is the kind of wealth you’re finding, maybe it’s time to get on the Pintrest band wagon…

  • Ari @ Ari's Menu January 16, 2012, 3:04 pm

    I love the last one too! And I’ve always loved that Nike one.

  • Alaina January 16, 2012, 3:52 pm

    Those quotes are great!! I like the one about going slow but not stopping. I have to tell myself that during my long runs. 🙂

  • Breanna January 16, 2012, 4:15 pm
