Pull Up Your Big Girl Panties & Workout

I’m reposting this blog in honor of Biggest Loser, after they featured my motivational mantra about Big Girl Panties (below) on their social sites today. :) 

“Most of us would rather sit on the couch. But most of us don’t want to look like all we do is sit on the couch.”

Why do we have the need to “FEEL” like working out? To be motivated to train hard or even just show up. Do you think professional athletes always want to roll out of bed at the crack of dawn to train, practice and beat their bodies up day after day? People don’t always want to workout, but people always want the results. Winners choose to workout, even when they don’t feel like it. It’s time to train like a winner.

You Either Want It or Not
If you really want to be thin, get more fit, perform better, run faster, go longer, win your next fight…you have to train – whether you like it or not. Even the most brutal workouts don’t last forever. Think of the facts: the work you do in that short period of time gives you benefits that last hours of feeling amazing, feeling confident, and feeling like a winner.

“Winners choose to workout, even when they don’t feel like it.”

Don’t You Even Think About It
Don’t ponder whether you should workout or not. The answer will always be “Yes, you should”. Pondering it, weighing your options, or renegotiating your schedule and commitments just wastes precious time. Just suck it up, pull up your big girl panties and just do it!

  1. I’m printing this “Put Your Big Girl Panties ON” as a poster and putting it on our door. My husband and guests will also hopefully be motivated. PRINTING! TAPING! RUNNING OUT THE DOOR! THANKS!

  2. I think you should put the words(above) on the other picture and send to me – oh and autograph it!

    When I see former teammates on college and pro level who are in poor shape – I wonder what happen to their level of commitment to themselves. Anyway, my boxers are fitting well!

    Keep up the good work!

  3. Amen sister! I rarely feel like it these days, but it’s just something I do no matter how I feel. Just like cleaning the house. If you only do it when you feel like it, it will never get done and you’ll live in a pit!

  4. Hi Bonnie! This interview came out from some teammates of mine the exact same day as your blog was posted:

    http://www.flotrack.org/coverage/248567-2012-NCAA-D1-Outdoor-Track-Field-Championships/video/640126-Colleen-Quigely-and-Astrid-Leutard-put-on-FSU-big-girl-steeple-panties-at-2012-NCAA-Outdoor-Champs

    Just curious if you saw this interview or if it is complete coincidence, because that would be crazy!!

  5. Sometimes life is messy. It knocks you down, breaks your heart and kicks you around for good measure. This is when you just gotta get your big girl panties on and deal with it.

  6. I am already cutting down on my calories but i need to do exercise as well. What excercise should i do to effectively cut down my belly fat. I’m not that fat. i look fine when i stand up. its just that when i sit down my stomach bunches up and makes a bump and i want that gone..
