August 17, 2011
You Inspire Me…. The chalkboard at BodyFit has recently been turned into the "You Inspire Me" wall. There are so many people around us every day that are inspirations, and they need recognized.
It's not just those that have worked hard and lost weight, but also those people whose faces we see every day, those people who have battled health concerns, and those who are just motivational to be around! We all see inspiration in different ways and in different people….we want EVERYONE to have input on who THEY are inspired by! Let us know who inspires you, we'll get it on the board!
We've also introduced the Motivational Wall, intended to be a place for everyone to put those words that motivate them to keep working toward their goals, and that will help others stay focused on theirs! Those words that sneak up in your mind when you are just about to give up, those words that lift you up on a bad day, the phrase or words you use to keep others going….or is there someone that has helped you achieve success toward your goal? We want everyone to share what motivates them….it will help motivate everyone else!!
