20 Best Motivational Quotes To Keep You Fit-Spired — Even After The Summer Ends

Motivational Quotes Motivated Inspired Fitness Goals All Summer

For most, summer is the best time of year. It feels like a break from the mundane life we live in all the other three seasons. So, it's understandable that fall tends to feel like a harsh wake up call — forcing us to have "no fun" again. But, with the right motivational quote; you're sure to get the new season started off right.

The end of summer is approaching and you’re dreading it. No more tanning by the pool, playing at the beach or floating the river. Soon enough it'll be time to put the bathing suits up and exchange them for sweaters and scarves. Now, it’s back to school season, work, cold weather, and planning (and saving) for winter vacations.

But, I assure you, the end of Summer is NOT the end of the world.

With the end of summer comes a time for change — a chance to make things new. To do all the things you a said you’d do this summer (like working out and eating right or working on that project you swore you’d get to some day). It's time to make changes for the better. 

As they say... summer bodies are made in the winter! Which means you are AHEAD of the game. Go you!

Yeah, it’s sad that there are no more beach vacays and summer-themed parties, BUT there is no reason you need to lose all that motivation just because life starts up again!

Fall is the perfect time to start making those New Year's resolution lists, organizing that desk of yours you always leave a mess and maybe even time to start that novel you’ve always wanted to write.

It’s all about motivation. What’s going to keep you going?

It all has to start with you. No one is going to hold your hand when you finally buckle down and start working. You have to WANT to do it. So, why not start now?

No more sitting around and waiting for things to happen, it's time to make them happen … Or at least start to make them happen.

Okay… Maybe it’s way easier said than done. But, you’ve gotta start somewhere right? And the more you TELL yourself, “I’ve got this,” the more likely it is to be true (hopefully). Nothing is more motivating than hearing other people tell you that you’re going to be okay.

Sometimes it takes a little encouragement to keep going, and that’s totally fine! That’s why awesome people who can inspire and empower you exist, and maybe one day you’ll be the one inspiring other people!

Don’t expect change right away, but don’t let those after-summer blues hit you so hard that you take on this new season with a negative attitude. If you fall into this rut, I can promise, you WILL be miserable.
