In need of non-vomit-inducing insprational quotation
May 29, 2014 7:24 AM Subscribe
I need your ideas for sayings/quotations/an awesome slogan you just came up with yourself that conveys the idea that you should just get up and do your workout. It's part of a gift (for a very willing participant), but because that thinspiration stuff makes me want to hurl and because the quotation will be visible to other people, I don't want a "you will love your body more" or even "I really regret that workout said nobody ever" type thing.

My mid-day-at-work run/workout buddy and I have the same conversation every day. She sticks her head in my office, and tells me she won't be able to do that workout we planned for 3pm. I tell her I'm going anyway, but we can do it now. Now? YES, now. She whines, we go, kick butt, and half way through she thanks me for making her go because she feels awesome.
I'm leaving this office and want to make a sign/art project that will remind her to go even though I'm not here. She'll like it. Don't worry.
It could be a famous [or not] quotation from literature, song, whatever that doesn't explicitly name check going on a run or exercise, but is perhaps about not procrastinating or not coming up with excuses or.....something like that?
