Motivational Quote - Exercise is a reward-- not a punishment--for eating.

SparkPeople's Comments

Do you see exercise as something you have to do to burn off calories? Change your mindset to view exercise as a fun hobby. Plus, it's a gift: There are so many disabled or injured people in the world who cannot move as freely as they might like to. Be grateful for your abilities and treat your body right by keeping it healthy and active.

It doesnt feel like it at first but enjoying exercise has this way of creeping up on you without you realising it.

It's all about attitude, isn't it?

I am going to change my attitude toward exercise, I have always seen it as a punishment for being overweight.

Initially it felt like a punishment, but ever since I started trail walking and hiking exercise feels like a reward for eating well. And, paradoxically, it feels like a reward for exercising as I'm able to do more and more challenging trails and my favorite spots get easier and easier.

Yes, I love this quote. I'm going to send this quote to my friend. We are always talking about food.

If this is true for you, you are eating the wrong stuff

I love this quote. Exercise is so much fun. Don't be afraid to try new things -- kick boxing, cross fit, boot camp, step.

I've actually gotten to where I enjoy working out. It's not so much the actual workout itself, I mean who wants to be all jiggly and gross, but how I feel afterwards. Even though I'm covered in sweat, I feel cleaner.
