Friday Fun: Exercise--Who Likes It?

I guess we have an "Inspirational" theme going on this week. So it seems right to post these quotes I've been collecting to inspire me to exercise. Not that they've worked, mind you, because neither have I! But one of these days ...

What are your favorite quotes or exercise tips? Seriously, exercise is a great technique to help overcome those days when we're feeling really down. So take these quotes seriously. Seriously!

If you really want to do something, you'll find a way. If you don't, you'll find an excuse. – Jim Rohn

The only bad workout is the one that didn't happen. – Unknown

You don't always get what wish for; you get what you work for! – Unknown

Think a 20-minute workout won't do anything? Well it's sure better than a 0-minute workout. – Unknown

You don't have to be great to start, but you have to start to be great. – Zig Ziglar

Yesterday you said tomorrow. – Nike

An object at rest tends to stay at rest, and an object in motion tends to stay in motion. – Sir Isaac Newton

OK, OK, I'm going out for a walk now. Have a good day everyone, and if you see a sweating middle-aged woman plodding down the sidewalk, please be kind and don't laugh---it's probably me!


P.S. Remember to always heed government health warnings about exercise.


  1. I was on the exercise bike today for almost 45 minutes!!

    Next week I'm going to try turning the pedals.


    1. I'm just seeing this for the first time today. It made me laugh but it also reminded me that I need to make a start somewhere.

  2. I'm not sure if this is an exercise
    quote, but it is one of my favorites
    which in times past, has got me going.

    " a journey of a thousand miles begins
    with the first step"

    There are somedays, I just won't budge and
    then, a little whisper reminds me (just take
    the first step).

    Tom would say on so many occasions "feet
    why won't you get going" or.......
    "up and at'em at'em ant"

    And....then he would just start taking that first
    step, it is true when we force ourselves
    to just simply take the first step, the next step will follow.


  3. A quote I keep on my desk reads, "Whether you think you can or you think you can't, you're right." Henry Ford
