    "Yesterday you said 'tomorrow'"

    Also "don't quit lil' *kitten*! Keep going!" - guy who ran past me on my route a couple of weeks ago. Every time I get to that point on my runs now I'm like HELL YEAH I'M GOING TO KEEP GOING, RANDOM DUDE!

    "Take care of your body, It's the only place you have to live"

    "What doesn't kill you makes you stronger"

    "Doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will"

    "You don't always get what you wish for, you get what you work for!"

    "Stop competing with others and start competing with yourself"

    I think it is a JM Quote "You will pass out, before you die" It pops into my head when ever I want to slow down or quit a run early. I will not die, I'll just pass out. :)

    Mind over matter. If you don't mind, it don't matter.

    I hate the abuse of grammar but I keep it around anyway.

    Went to find exact words for this one, apparently by Henry Ford:

    “Whether you think you can, or you think you can't--you're right.”

    He had some other nice ones too:

    “You can't build a reputation on what you are going to do.”

    “Don't find fault, find a remedy; anybody can complain”

    “Obstacles are those frightful things you see when you take your eyes off your goals.”

    “It has been my observation that most people get ahead during the time that others waste”

    “When everything seem to be going against you, remember that the airplane takes off against the wind, not with it ....”

    “One of the greatest discoveries a person makes, one of their great surprises, is to find they can do what they were afraid they couldn't do.”

    Doesn't matter if it's a 5min mile or a 20min mile, it's still a mile.

    I also like Pain is just fear leaving the body (although I do threaten to hit the trainer when he says it half way through class)

    and
    If it ain't hurtin, it ain't working
  • The one that has stuck with me on MFP is "Beating yourself up doesn't burn carlories." I took that to heart and stopped doing it.

    Sometimes I feel the need to chant something to push myself. When I want to quit I just repeat:

    Pain is temporary, pride is forever!!

    Mine is a Bible verse: "I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength."
  • "Yesterday you said 'tomorrow'"

    Also "don't quit lil' *kitten*! Keep going!" - guy who ran past me on my route a couple of weeks ago. Every time I get to that point on my runs now I'm like HELL YEAH I'M GOING TO KEEP GOING, RANDOM DUDE!

    AWESOME!!! Funny how something so small and random can really get to people.

    Every time I want to skip a workout I say to myself "Never again" and visualize the pic I took on day 1. Not a pretty sight.
