Fitness Motivation - Inspirational Fitness Quote

Life, right?!

It can come at you fast and it can come at you hard. On any given day our attention is pulled in so many different directions. Working, being a parent, being a spouse, cleaning, cooking, soccer practice, socializing, etc, etc, etc. Sometimes when we get caught up in all the different roles we portray there's one role that's easy to lose site of... ourselves.

Fitness Motivation - Give It Your Best - Inspiration

Are you on Instagram? Tone and Tighten is! Follow here for more great fitness motivation!

In most cases, the workout scene is a social one. When you go to the gym you're immediately surrounded by a huge variety of people. It's very easy to get caught up in the comparison game –"my chest isn't as big as his" or "she has amazing arms. I wish mine looked like that". It's a fact of life that you'll look better than some and you won't look as good as others.If I could offer you one piece of advice when comparing your self to other people it would be this: DON'T.

"It feels like someone is digging an ice pick into the bottom of my foot."

"The first few steps out of bed are so painfulI that I can barely walk in the morning."

"I have been training for this upcoming half marathon. It is four weeks away and I can't run anymore because my foot hurts so badly."

Heel pain. If it's something that you've never encountered before let's pray that you never do. If it's something that you have had in the past, let's pray that it never comes back. If it's something that you're currently experiencing, my heart truly does go out to you! Plantar fasciitis is, in my opinion, one of the most difficult, debilitating injuries to have. You never realize how much you use your feet until every step hurts. As a physical therapist, this is a condition that I encounter daily. Fortunately, there is a lot that you can do about it! In today's "Feel Better Now" series we're going to be discussing plantar fasciitis – what is it, why it's there, and (most importantly) what you can do about it to feel better now.
