My Fitness Motivation Vision Board #dishthefit

How are your 2015 resolutions going so far?

We're nearing two weeks into January and in the coming week I'm joining up with the Tuesday Fit Dish link-up once again! We are sharing fitness related tips and the optional topic was to make a motivation vision board.

Creating a vision board was a first for me and it was a blast. Basically my "vision board" is a collage of pictures that inspire and encourage me. Someday when E has more of an attention span for crafts, I hope we can create a hands-on motivation vision board to hang on the wall!


Here's my motivation for keeping those 2015 resolutions:

My Fitness Motivation Vision Board(s)


My Faith: We are called to be good stewards of the bodies God has given us. My focus is to put Him first in my life and glorify Him in all I do - and that includes running and exercise!
Do you not know that your bodies are temples of the Holy Spirit, Who is in you, Whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor God with your bodies. 1 CORINTHIANS 6:19-20 (emphasis added by me)

My Family: Being a healthy example for my son, exercising as a family and staying fit in my second pregnancy are big motivating factors for me! We love to be active together and want to model fitness as a lifestyle for our children.


Running Goals: Running is a matter of physical training and, even more so, mental training. Running is a great way to train in mental toughness! Running is a lifestyle and to continue to stay fit well into my years. And I would be lying if I said medals and chasing PR's didn't motivate me!

Fueling Well: Over these years of growing as a "runner", I am seeing the importance of fueling your body well. Though I am definitely not a master chef, I am doing my best to learn how to cook healthy meals for my family! Like I said, I do my best... but I do crave Spaghettios from time to time (gross, I know - blame it on the preggo hormones).

Racing Dreams: My racing "bucket list" keeps me motivated and dreaming of running in different places - or possible family "run-cations" (running vacations). Running the Disney Marathon and then taking our kids to Disneyworld afterwards is one of my dreams!

    1. Thanks, Mary Beth! Photoshop is usually my favorite for photo editing, but when I'm away from the home computer, I found that Pixlr (online) creates some awesome and easy collages! I'm working on a new header/cover photo collage this weekend, too :)

  7. Love it! These are so fun to look at! And I love the family photos the most! And the disney, "26.2 I'm coming for you!" I ran the Disney Princess Half in 2012! It was so much fun!

    This is my first time to your blog, but I'll be back ;-) #dishthefit

    1. I'm sure the Disney Princess Half was a blast! I hope to run at Disney one day though I may need to wait a while until our kids are old enough to remember the rides :)

    1. I hope the Disney Marathon becomes a reality, too! It may not be for a few more years, though, whenever our kids are old enough to actually remember the park :) Until then, I will keep dreaming!

  10. I love your different boards, especially the quote "honor God with your body." I like reminding myself that I'm not just staying fit for myself & my family, but God wants me to take care of this body that he has gifted me.

    We have SO much in common. I love it!
