Are you "Bored"? Make a Motivational "Board"!

My Motivational Board

If I am not training myself or my TeamSexy girls, I am at the computer updating this blog, client files, answering/checking emails or entering into contests.  I have been delaying this project for months now and finally got around to it the other day.  The whole reason why I wanted to start this DIY project was to motivate my girls and myself to get back into the swing of things (hardcore training/strict nutrition).  I, myself, am a visual person.  I need to see things in order to engrave them in my mind.  Enter MOTIVATIONAL board project.  I started looking through old magazine for bold statements and words I relate to.  If you want to make a board for yourself (just like the one you see above), here is what you will need (all from Staples. Click links to view products):

  • Clear plastic desk protective cover 
  • Double-sided mounting tape 
  • Scissors
  • Clear masking tape
  • Dry-erase markers (assorted)
  • Fitness-related magazines such as Oxygen, Fitness, Women's Health, Muscle Development
  • Motivational quotes (try this website)

After that, start cracking at it.  At lot of people have asked me why I made it a whiteboard and not strictly a pinboard.  The reason why is simple.  On a weekly basis or whenever I get "bored" of the quotes, I will change it to something fresh and new.  That way, I will never get "bored".  Smart huh?

If you aren't on the creative side or just darn lazy, do not fret.  There are virtual pin boards online such as (@Pinterest)

"Pinterest lets you organize and share all the beautiful things you find on the wed.  People use pinboards to plan their weddings, decorate their homes and organize their favourite recipes.  Best of all, you can browse pinboards created by other people.  Browsing pinboards is a fun way to discover new things and get inspiration from people who share your interests."

You can share everything from fitness, recipes, wedding plans, inspirational thoughts/ideas, technology - pretty much anything you can imagine.  Love the idea?  What are you waiting for then?
