My Monday Motivation this week comes in the form of my entry into the Microsoft Mobile #LumiaFitnessInspiration competition.  As part of their fitness inspiration campaign, they have asked bloggers to capture in a photo what’s inspired or inspiring about their fitness regime.  Learn more about the competition here,

My photo is actually a photo of myself training, and> is from when I first started lifting weights.  When this photo was taken I was still getting over my fear of the free weights area and> the squat rack but with persistence I now love resistance training.  Pushing myself to lift heavier and> train harder.  I enjoy looking back on the photo and> seeing how far I have come.  If ever I feel like quitting I look at this photo and> it gives me the strength to keep going.

I hope this photo can inspire others to overcome their fitness fears, and> help them on their journey to reach their goals but the truth is you need to be your own motivation.  Do it for you!

I would love to hear your thoughts on my #LumiaFitnessInspiration entry, and> hear more about what motivates you!
