Define your goals

Define your goals. Know the reason you want them is for you alone // Quotes about motivation from the PumpUp Blog

"My best advice would be to have clear, precise, achievable goals written down, and to know that the reason you want them is for you alone. If it’s to prove something to someone, then they have that power over you." - @balancingforlife

Make sacrifices

You will need to make sacrifices. Rise above the doubt in your head // Quotes about motivation from the PumpUp Blog

Sacrifice time each day to get to the gym, and sacrifice foods you know won’t help you reach your goals! You have to install these habits and even then, it won’t be easy. Once you decide to change, it will be the best decision of your life! Day in and day out, do it no matter what, until giving up isn’t an option anymore! You have to rise above the doubt in your head. Making this a lifestyle will take time, so don’t get discouraged when you have a setback. Take it one day at a time and you will do great things. - @fitlisa

Be patient for change. It will come in a matter of time // Quotes about motivation from the PumpUp Blog

Be patient for change. Your head will tell you to stop, give up, and quit, but your body is capable of things you could never imagine! Change will come—you just have to keep going or you will not see the change. Change will come in a matter of time. - @dolphzigglerfan

Don't cheat yourself

You are only cheating yourself if you don't give 100% every time // The PumpUp Blog

Remember: the brain is a muscle

Remember: the brain is also a muscle. Tell yourself that you 'can'. // Quotes about motivation from the PumpUp Blog

Take ownership of your fitness journey

Take ownership of your fitness journey // Quotes about motivation from the PumpUp Blog

Getting started is the hardest part. Once you see results, that will be what keeps you going. So set reasonable goals (no matter how small) and work towards achieving those and setting new ones each time you achieve them. Above all, take ownership of your fitness journey. It’s your journey and no one can make you do it. You have to want to do it for yourself and not for anyone else. - @kelliem887

Incorporate exercise into your life

Incorporate exercise into your life for the rest of your life // The PumpUp Blog

6 Powerful Etsy Posters for International Women's Day 2015

Who run the world? In terms of political leadership, it isn't girls. Not yet. According to UN Women, although the percentage of women holding leadership positions in national parliamentary offices nearly doubled over the last 20 years, these gains are still incremental at best. As of January 2015, a mere 22 percent of all national parliamentarians were female, in comparison to 11.3 percent in 1995.

On International Women's Day 2015, make it happen

The theme for International Women's Day 2015 is to make it happen. In the words of IWD, March 8th is an annual opportunity to "celebrate the achievements of women while calling for greater equality." Awareness is just the first step. Don't be afraid to be strong: you are already strong. Change the way that the world perceives strength through your actions. Take this opportunity to immerse yourself in a powerful environment: posters emblazoned with affirmations that echo what needs to be said, heard, celebrated, and understood by each person, male, or female.
