What inspires you?

When your get up and go has got up and left, what inspires you to get back into the game? This goes for pretty much anything you’re committed to, whether it’s fitness or some form of art such as writing, music, etc.

I find that certain books and YouTube videos help me. There are various people in the vegan community whom I find to be very inspirational in my fitness pursuits, and reading their blogs and watching their YouTube videos helps me to shake off the funk and get back in the ring. Other times it’s remembering how I feel after. Exercise make me feel good. If it didn’t, I don’t know how or why I would do it!

What inspires you? Feel free to chime in with your thoughts, ideas, books, movies, blogs…you name it!

  1. Youtube videos by Dan Macdonald, and in particular Tim Van Orden are inspiring to me, Tim mostly because he has suffered from depression for a long time and shares his thoughts and being someone who also suffers from it, it really helps calm my mind

    People who have journals on Vegan Bodybulding forum and raw food and vegan people i have connected with on Facebook.. .

    • I LOVE VBB&F. It's my staple. I also love the Muscle & Fitness Hers magazine, they can be amazingly vegan friendly for such a mainstream mag, especially given the fitness world is still glued to the erroneous idea that meat = protein. When I tell people that EVERY natural food out there has protein, they don't seem to believe me! They think for whatever reason, you need absurd amounts of it in your diet and that you can't get enough on fruit and vegetables alone. Very, very strange.

      In any event, watching others and chatting with peers on the path, so to speak, goes a LONG way. 🙂
