You’ve made it through another year! How does your end match up with what you thought it would be this time last year?
It’s January 1, and that means it’s time for you to start working on your New Year’s decisions (resolutions don’t work). Maybe you’ve got some, maybe you don’t. You might be too sick at the moment to do anything about it anyway.
That’s why I did some legwork for you. I spent some time looking for the best motivational posts I could find, and I’ve linked you to them below.
Most of them are related specifically to fitness, others aren’t. But I can promise you there are at least several in this list that will help you get going with your new goals.
So without further ado, here are the top 31 motivational posts I found to help you kick start your fitness.
