Do you jump out of bed every day pumped to workout and eat healthy? If not, you may not be alone. Following and sticking to a fitness and nutrition plan can be tough. There will be days when we won't be able to find any sense of fitness motivation and just want to throw in the sweaty towel and give up. But that’s the perfect time to reflect back and remember why you started in the first place and what your short and long-term goals are. And sometimes, we just need a few motivational quotes to kickstart us again...
