< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Time to make those gym gains.

There is nothing harder than finding the motivation to go to the gym — or choosing to eat that green salad over that greasy slice of pizza heaven.

Especially during the summer months, the constant feeling to look a certain way and actively follow a healthy lifestyle is time consuming. We take longer over-thinking how we look and the food we eat instead of just living in the moment and enjoying every minute of our precious time.

There are some incredible and strong women out there who put their fitness journey on the Internet to help inspire others.

Living a healthy lifestyle is more than just eating your veggies and working out regularly — it is practicing self-love and giving yourself the pamper time you deserve.

There are many fitness bloggers I look up to for inspiration and motivation.

These women aren’t perfect and don’t want you to think their body is the ultimate goal — they want to create an environment where every woman is confident in her skin and lives the healthiest lifestyle that she can.

Here is a quick rundown of my top three favorite fitness bloggers and why they are truly so inspiring:

50 Inspirational Quotes That Will Motivate You To Go Out And Get Your DREAM

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Go get what’s yours!

So many people go through life working jobs that they absolutely hate. Day in and day out they wish that they could be doing anything else but are often too scared to quit and take the necessary steps to get their dream job.

A dream job is one in which you find a passion for doing work that you genuinely love and enjoy. When this is obtained, work doesn’t feel like work. But how do you go about getting your dream job?

The first step is believing that you are actually capable of achieving it. The next step is to decide to stop making excuses for why you can’t do it. Then comes the most important step — you must actually put in the work.


There is no right road to making it happen, there just needs to be an unwavering determination to do so.

As you embark on your journey to follow your dreams, you will find that the dream wasn’t as crazy as you thought it was. Of course, you will encounter a few obstacles along the way, but you’ll remain at peace because you know that your dream has no expiration date and no clear set of instructions. Failure is the worst thing that can happen and just better prepares you for the next time you try. So, don’t stop trying until you are successful.

Your dream job is out there, you just have to keep searching and working for it. If you search and can’t find it, then you can create it. Sometimes you have to make a way out of no way to get the happiness you desire. This is especially true when it comes to working.


Here are 50 inspirational quotes to help you get your dream job (and your dream LIFE!)


1. Do what you love.

“It’s a very short life. There’s no reason not to go after what sets your soul on fire.” — Unknown

2. Stay hopeful.

“One day you will be at the place you always wanted to be.” — Unknown

3. Dreaming is free. 

“It will cost you nothing to dream, and everything not to.” — Unknown

4. Just keep working to make it happen. 

“Soon enough you’ll find yourself in the shoes you always imagined yourself to be in.” — Bryanne Lawless

5. Back your vision up with action. 

“Don’t just be a dreamer. …

25 Inspirational Quotes About Seizing The Day (Because You Only Have One Life To Live)

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

Carpe Diem!

Making the most of every single day can be difficult. It’s not easy to stay motivated 24/7 and sometimes all you want to do is stay in bed to binge-watch whatever show you’re hooked on.

That’s OK! But make sure you aren’t lounging your life away. Sometimes all you need is a little inspiration to seize the day and remind yourself to focus on today. And a great way to do that is to grab yourself one of these inspirational “carpe diem” quotes to get you started at the beginning of every day.

When I graduated from University I was terrified of finding a job that I hate it. I knew that money makes the world go ’round but I also knew that I have one life to live and I didn’t want to spend it stuck in a passionless job. I could already see myself sitting at the same job 30 years from now because I pigeon-holed myself into doing something that I thought was right — society told me to.


Then I spoke with someone who didn’t exactly follow her true passions. She told me, “Yes, I would love to do what I’m passionate about but your passions only take you so far.”

That really struck a chord in me. What if I’m not one of the lucky ones who is able to sustain herself while doing what she loved? What if I am to live the rest of this life for other people, building their dreams and not mine?

It dawned on me that I’m young and I have the opportunity to make mistakes now.  If I want to travel or change careers or do something with as little consequence as possible I should do it while I can before it’s too late.

Sure, it’s scary. The uncertainty of tomorrow and not having a plan is terrifying. But what I’ve learned is there is no formulaic way to live life. You have to dive headfirst into the unknown if you’re ever going to make a change or see a different perspective.

I’ve come to terms with the fact that I will struggle along the way but will also gain experiences and adventures I’d never have if I stayed put. I finally realized the true meaning of Carpe Diem.

30 Boss Lady Quotes To Keep You Motivated (And A Little Sassy) So You Can Keep Your Eye On The Prize

< ?xml encoding="utf8mb4" ?>

A strong woman looks a challenge in the eye and gives it a wink. — Gina Carey

For the longest time I struggled with the concept of being a boss.  I mean, me? A boss? At first it sounded like an unreachable goal but I soon realized everyone should strive to be the best they can be.

I think a lot of it has to do with being a woman in a society that doesn’t necessarily always favor us. For example, a man and woman can be doing the same thing but a man is the boss and a woman is just bossy.

But it’s a new year, so why go back to the old you? It’s your time to shine! You are THE boss, never forget that.


Boss people have a sense of confidence and awareness about where they stand in this world. From my work life to my romantic life, the times I didn’t identify as a boss woman I let people walk all over me.

I let people take advantage of me because I didn’t know my own worth. I thought I had to please everyone in order to fit in or have people like me.  But my purpose in this life isn’t to live it for other people, and neither is yours. Some people are offended by that.

The truth is it’s impossible to please everybody.  The most you can do is make yourself happy. You have to take ownership of your own life.  Do you. Sure, it’s intimidating, especially when you’re taught to always do things for other people, but it’s worth it.

So if you need of a little inspiration about being a boss person, check out these quotes for a little pick-me-up.


1. Being a boss means you’re ready for new adventures.

“If you’re too comfortable, it’s time to move on. Terrified of what’s next? You’re on the right track.” — Susan Fales Hill


2. It means more than one role.

“Sometimes you gotta be a beauty and a beast.” — Nicki Minaj


3. Remember that being a boss means figuring out success.

“Know that you can start late, look different, be uncertain and still succeed.” — Unknown


4. Bosses do everything at once.

“You can find me somewhere in between inspiring others, working on myself, dodging negativity, and slaying my goals.” — Unknown


5. You can do anything you set your mind
