When I first set out on my fitness journey I taped my number one inspiration on the back of my bedroom door—Britney Spears and those fab abs. That picture was the last thing I saw before walking out to face the day ahead—a day full of choices: healthy or unhealthy, active or lazy. That image on the back of my door got me through many a 'doughnut vs. celery' and 'stairs vs. escalator' decisions. Mind you, this was, oh, I don't know - 11 years ago? But have we SEEN the new Women's Health cover? Girlfriend's still got it!

Two years ago I stumbled across (or, likely, Instagram-ed across) someone's post of a workout calendar—genius! Five minutes later I was on Snapfish creating my first custom workout-inspo calendar. How could I not have thought of this before?! I hung it right in front of my treadmill, so I could stare the inspiration right in the face. There's something about staring at, "PR - Two little letters that make every runner smile," that makes you sprint that extra 30 seconds just to get the chance to jot down "PR!!!" in that day's square. There's also something so rewarding about looking back over a month's work that pushes you to conquer the next month with even more determination.

As one of the best health moves I ever made, I now pass on my 2015 workout-inspo calendar to you! May it encourage you to sprint a little farther, throw that kettlebell with a little more oomph, and stick that crow for your own personal 'PR' moment!

{Major Snapfish calendar deal until January 13, 2015!! 60% off all photo calendars using code: 60BKCAL.}

1.) Sweat More, Bitch Less. {or, do like me - Sweat More, Brag More ;-)}

2.) Sore. The Most Satisfying Pain. {LOVE to hate it}

3.) Run With Your Heart - Not With Your Legs <3 {Heart gets you farther—trust me}

4.) The difference between your body this week & next week is what you do for the next seven days to achieve your goals... {Repeat, repeat, repeat}

5.) Workout because you love your body, not because you hate it. {Working out is NOT a punishment—it's your body's reward}

6.) 4 Simple Rules: Never miss a Monday; Never go 3 days without exercise; Workout at least 3 days a week; Never give up {Mantra status}

7.) Losing Weight is Hard. Being Fat is Hard. Pick Your Hard. {I've done both—I can tell you which one is harder. What do you think?}

8.) I will beat her. I will train harder. I will eat cleaner. I know her weaknesses. I know her strengths. I've lost to her before. But not this time. She is going down. I have the advantage because I know her well. She is the Old Me. {This is my absolute FAV this year—it hits me right in the heart which then trickles right on down to my running legs and makes me FLY. I purposely put it in August to help me push through that downward Summer lull and kick-off Fall, aka, running season, on a high!}

9.) PR. Two little letters that make every runner smile. {My FAVORITE thing to get to write on my calendar}

10.) Sometimes I feel like giving up. Then I remember I have a lot of motherf$&%'ers to prove wrong. {One of which is myself—I can be a hell of a mother F'er}

11.) Crawling is acceptable. Falling is acceptable. Puking is acceptable. Crying is acceptable. Blood is acceptable. Pain is acceptable. Quitting is NOT. {Kapeesh?}

12.) No one ever drowned in sweat. {This is comforting to me, because I glisten like a hog}

Happy 2015 - Happy Health - Happy Jogging - Happy Jotting!
