    There are two things that inspire me to keep up with my fitness regimen: 1. It makes me feel better physically and mentally when I am being active. 2. I always enjoy challenging myself, and fitness is no exception to that. I’m constantly trying to be better, faster and stronger than I was yesterday.

      Next up: RAGNAR! Love how versatile running is and how easy it is to find a new challenge to pursue…now we just need to tackle Napa half marathon, of course.

    • Jackie says:

      Agreed! Do you have a MapMyRun addiction like me? I check my old runs ALL THE TIME to compare them against more recent ones. So motivating!

    What keeps me going is that feeling you get after a good workout, when you are cloud nine and feel like you can take on the world with more confidence and energy.

    Fitness is not something that come easily to me. I love being in shape but going to the gym and working out has never really taken off with me. Now get me on a tennis court and well that is a whole other story….one of the things that keeps me inspired especially on the court is when I see my improvement from week to week. When I can place the ball better, my serve is stronger and I am able to maintain my game for the full set. Now that is what I call a work out.

        LOL, I can totally understand about coordination. Tennis is the ONLY place I am coordinated. It’s all about the hands and eyes….and not tripping over your feet….I read a book once that really helped me believe it or not….and its pretty old but a good one….It doesn’t teach you about coordination but it does teach you about strategy….it’s called Winning Ugly.

    What inspires me to keep up my fitness is seeing results. Once I start to see results, whether it’s weight loss, smaller clothes sizes, increased strength, greater flexibility, or whatever, I am just so incredibly motivated to keep going and keep achieving greater and greater results.

    I’m inspired to beat the odds. Both my grandfather and father suffered from heart disease, so I try to stay active to stay healthy. Knowing that heart disease is the leading cause of death for women in the U.S. is just another reason to stay moving and to eat a healthy, veggie-filled diet.

    • Jackie says:

      You go girl! You’ve always been a fitness inspiration to me- you’re always so consistent, especially through college when the rest of us were getting little to no exercise beyond walking Cardiac Hill haha

    A lot of my motivation is sparked by others. As a future nurse, I see patients who have diseases where they are unable to move their own body or speak. My perspective is like this – exercise isn’t hard, fighting life threatening illnesses is hard. I am lucky enough to have a healthy body with minimal problems, so why wouldn’t I use it!

  7. Ellen Halle says:

    Jackie, I love the blog!! And that bag….

    I take my workout motivation 10 minutes at a time…and think about what I’m going to eat afterwards πŸ™‚

    • Jackie says:

      Thanks, Ellen! You must be the views I get from Kenya…haha πŸ™‚ And I’m on the same page- ALWAYS thinking about what this workout is going to justify meal-wise!

  8. Lauren says:

    I’m inspired to keep exercising for several reasons. 1st and foremost stress relief. It never fails that exercise just makes me feel better mentally and helps makes other things going on in my life more manageable. 2nd is weight management. A lot of my family struggles with weight. I don’t want it to become an issue for me so I exercise. I also like to set a good example for my weight loss patients. How can I ask them to eat right and exercise if I’m not willing to do so myself?

    • Jackie says:

      So true! I even feel the same way as a teacher…I don’t let the kids bring in cupcakes or sweets for birthdays (we do healthy breakfast treats instead) or get sucked into video games during indoor recess. I feel like it’s our duty to teach by example, especially with the number of unhealthy habits that most kids are surrounded by these days!
