Fitness is like a Relationship #PostItMessageBoard #FitnessQuotes

I agree with the saying "Fitness is like a relationship, you can't cheat and expect it to work", it is so true.  Sometimes, I asked myself why bother to workout because  despite of consistent workout, I see very small progress and the answer to that lies on me cheating (with food).  I used to not care much about sweets but when I  ventured into this fitness thing, I am craving sweets all the time and it's a temptation I can't resist  when those sweets are just in our kitchen. 
Anyway, I got this Post-it Bulletin/Dry Erase Board from Shoplet to review.  This Post-it Memo Board creates the ultimate communication center.  I decided to   put it in our home gym  to  write some inspiring quotes and to post some  workout photos.  I love the design of this  message board because it is a combination of  long-lasting adhesive surface on one side and a  superior dry-erase board on the other side.  You can write a  quick message or post a document without pins, tacks, or tape.
It has everything that you need for installation including the marker clips, dry erase markers and its holder.  I have never used this kind of fastener but it thought it's pretty neat.   It took me a minute to figure out how it works but it eventually registered in my small brain so it's all good lol.
I am however disappointed that  the  dry erase board part  of this message board has a dent.  I guess, it got damaged on the mail.  I would suggest that Shoplet should  pack this with bubble wrap to avoid damage during the transit.  It is soft so it  would  be easily get dented during the mail transit.
I love that one half  has adhesive and  marble pattern is  beautiful.  I posted some of the workout  clippings I got from  fitness magazines.  On the other side, I wrote some inspiring  quotes for fitness.  
"The pain you feel today will be the strength you feel tomorrow."  Another  quote that I like and can relate too.  When I first started working out, I could barely run a mile with  running out of breath but now I can continuously run without  breathing like I am going to die lol.  The key is to  set a realistic goal when working out.  You can start small like  walk 2 minutes then run 3 minutes or even less than that.  Eventually as you  go along with your journey, you will find out that it gets easier and you get stronger.
"Slow PROGRESS is better than NO progress."  As I mentioned  above, I get very  slow progress with my goals but it's okay.  As long as you keep your head and mindset on achieving your goal, you will eventually get to it.  You just need to find your fire, your inner strength and your motivation.  My motivation  is seeing my kids grow up and be there for them when they need me, I won't be able to do that if I am weak or sick or dead.  So staying  healthy and  striving to get fit is what keeps me going.  Good things take time so just  keep going.
"You're only one workout away from a good mood."   I used to not workout because I always get migraine almost everyday.  I thought, workout will just make my migraine worse but I was dead wrong.  Now that I am active, my migraine is becoming less and less.  I noticed that I only  have it when I am getting my period so that's a WIN for me.  I also used to be  short fused and get cranky so easily but now I find that my patience is lengthen and that I am in good mood all the time.
"Focus on health not on weight."  I used to be obsessed with checking my weight to see if I am losing any  as I exercise but now I don't even check anymore.  I am more concern of  getting stronger and healthier.  This is one thing that  discourages us when trying to lose weight but remember that  when you don't lose  weight, you are gaining something.. strength.  So just keep exercising.  
Remember this saying " There is no shortcut.  It takes time to create a BETTER, STRONGER version of yourself."

Here's a short video of my warm up before my 4-mile run.

  2. You have an amazing set up at your house! I love the idea of a message board, but I can NOT workout at home no matter how hard I try. I need group fitness classes to keep me accountable.

  5. I need to get a board like this. I'd probably write something like, "Work out and then get a brownie." That would motivate me.

  20. You're so fit sis! I wonder what it would take and how long for me to get to where you are now. I lack the discipline and motivation so I need to really change my thinking and habits. Way to go!

  21. Way to go sis. you can do that and you will indeed conquer your goal. temptations are always around especially when you are having to set your mind into something. but when you pass that 1 week temptations? you are absolutely 100% winner.
