We are smack in the middle of the holiday season, and as the list of Christmas errands gets longer and the days get shorter, it’s tough to find the motivation to make time for your daily workout and wellness routine.
By the time New Year creeps up and everyone is talking about resolutions, you make promises to yourself about your health and fitness goals…only to set them aside by February. Sometimes you need a boost fueled by a thought that will get your butt up and out of bed, and into your workout clothes before attacking the day’s craziness.
Here are some inspiring quotes that will remind you to think of yourself and your health (even if just a little bit), this holiday and post-holiday season.
