Bella Forza Fitness: Eye on the Prize
Our fitness columnist gives you some tips to stay motivated. Read on for ways to make sure you turn up the heat on your workout routine during the cold season.

 

Keeping your eye on the prize is a familiar concept when trying to achieve a goal. What better way to focus on your fitness goals than to take that phrase to heart? Creating an inspirational board can be a great tool to boost your fitness motivation and keep your goals on track. By displaying a board of motivational pictures and quotes of things you want to achieve, you can constantly remind yourself of the end result. By glancing at the board on your way out the door, it might just give you that extra boost to kick it up a notch in your workout.

 

Motivational boards can be made in the style of junior high crush posters by cutting out magazine pictures, writing goals and maybe even adding a healthy recipe on a bulletin board. Are magazine collages too old school for you? You might enjoy going to the web for a hip version of a bulletin board. Pinterest.com is a cool site where you can create a virtual pin board of images, quotes and such that you find online. Plus, you can follow other people's fitness boards to steal - I mean borrow - their ideas and motivation.

 

While making your inspirational boards, here are some tips to keep in mind when selecting images or "pins":

  • Stay away from airbrushed images. Make sure you are picking positive and realistic bodies to admire. Those body images that are artificial will only lead to frustration, so pick positive role models.
  • Motivational quotes for different moods towards exercising can be great to have on hand when you are just having one of those days and need an extra word of encouragement.
  • Images of different exercises you enjoy or those you want to try are a constant reminder of things to add to your to-do list for the day.

 

So break out the scissors and glue or head over to Pinterest to get started on your own motivational board. Hey, before you know it, you might be adding a before and after photo of yourself to show your success!
