    Monday Motivation: let the dead leaves drop

    This quote from Rumi is my theme for the week, especially since it’s the last full week of the year: Be like a tree and let the dead leaves drop. Short, sweet, and powerful. Over the past twelve months, the leaves we gather grow and build up. A few of the dead ones may still […]

    Monday Motivation: Just BEGIN

    Don’t make change too complicated…just BEGIN. Nothin’ like a Monday Motivation quote to slap you right in the face, right? Well, maybe it’s a gentle slap.

  • It is not because things are difficult that we do not dare; it is because we do not dare that they are difficult. Monday Motivation from Hello to Fit

    Monday motivation: dare to succeed

    People decide to work with a trainer for many reasons, but one common thread I’ve found is that most people have trainers in order to work harder than they would on their own. Exercises you wouldn’t dare do independently are almost guaranteed to be done while your trainer is watching. I’m the same way, and […]
