Lately, every week I’ve been changing the background image on my phone to keep me on track and motivated. I figured it would be helpful to share my personal motivation tactics with you guys.
PCOS Encouragement and Quotes
I can literally spend hours on Pinterest and google searching for quotes and graphics that resonate with me. I thought that it might be a good idea for me to post weekly motivation for you guys. I’m thinking every Monday I’ll do #MondayMotivation and I’ll post little pieces of encouragement. What do you guys think? So far, having a new background on my phone makes me stay conscious of my goals and helps me stay accountable.
If you want to use the background just save the image. It’s FREE.
Be stronger than your excuses
This week, I’m focusing on being stronger than my excuses. I used the lemons in the graphic because I am obsessed with lemons (I love lemon everything) and sometimes life gives you lemons and you just have to deal with it.
Trust me when I say I am the queen of excuses. If I don’t want to do something I can have myself thinking that it makes perfect sense for me to avoid that responsibility. For example: If I’m feeling very lazy and trying to avoid the gym I’ll remind myself of how many loads of clothes I have to wash, how little sleep I got the night before, or every other excuse in the book.
The thing is, excuses don’t get me anywhere but in the same spot that I was in before. Most of the time, my excuses lead me to be overwhelmed and anxious about upcoming tasks. It’s my goal this week to tackle everything head on and not make any excuses.
don’t limit your potential to be great
Another reason I’ve chosen this quote of the week is because it can be easy to avoid new experiences and put off taking yourself to the next level. I’ve been talking to one of my subscribers this week about taking control of her life, body, and her PCOS. She told me about how in the past she has always had an excuse about not managing her PCOS. She didn’t understand the disorder, she didn’t think she was strong enough to resist her favorite foods, she didn’t have time to exercise, she didn’t know which supplements to take, and she just happened to get pregnant unexpectedly. Throughout her entire journey, she continued to suffer from unwanted hair, insecurities about her femininity, anxiety, and depression.
Excuses won’t get you anywhere. They will be there, looking all pretty and satisfying and in the end, excuses keep you from reaching your highest potential.
This week I hope you remember that you are stronger than your excuses. You are fierce, you are strong, you are capable, and you’re going to get your shit together!
So what do you think?
