Motivation & Exercise Board

Need a little constant reminder motivation?
Creat a motivation/exercise/recipe board. I use a simple corkboard and go through my massive amounts a magazines that I hoard and cut out things I think are cool, inspiring, look yummy and I love finding great quick workouts in magazines.
Lately working with women I get a lot of them bored with their routine or just don't know what exercises to do. Best place to look when we can't have a personal trainer by our sides is our bedside/coffee tables! I know y'all have your Cosmos, Womens Health, In Shape magazines laying around so USE them. Find your "sexy abs in 6 days" or "4 weeks to sexy beach body" exercises, rip them out and TRY THEM OUT! I keep quite a few on my board for when I need a new exercise for one of my classes or clients. It's an easy, inexpensive, effective workout. Get bored? Try a different one out!
Also need quick, easy, healthy YUMMY recipes? They are in your magazines! Magazine companies pay good money to have nutritionists come in and share healthy recipes that readers want. Again rip that bad boy out post it up and don't forget to add those ingredients to your shopping list!
Also the board is just not for magazine cut outs. It's a place for you to post your thoughts, pictures of how we "used to look", pictures of your family, reminders , heck I don't care if you staple a pair of your "skinny" pants to it! What ever drives YOU.
Remember to have fun, maybe throw a funny cartoon up there. Your meant to enjoy life, so don't forget to smile .

  1. this is awesome. i don't know why i haven't thought of it before haha... since i never take a second glance at the workouts that real simple offers every issue!

  2. Thats a great idea Christina. I have a board with all the things posted on it that I would like to accomplish in the future. I don't often look at it, but funny enough most of the things I put on there a year ago I have achieved.

  3. I just finished my first inspiration/motivation board for exercise/fitness and I'm starting another one for things I want to accomplish in the future. You're right, it's a great way to use all of those magazines we all get (and hoard!) haha

  4. Awesome idea! I had a binder for workouts and recipes that I found and I decorated the cover with pictures from the past and motivational women. That wasn't as visible throughout the day as a corkboard though, so I might have to try that!

  5. love it.
    going to copy it.
