I Want to Win

One of my friends asked me the other day how I find the motivation to train hard on the days when I either don't feel well, or just plain old don't feel like training. I told her what motivates me is the desire to WIN.

"Winning" can mean any number of things - it can mean anything from losing a couple pounds to winning a trophy to just having the confidence to stand on stage. Or it could mean feeling good about wearing a swim suit, or eating clean for a week, or running a mile without stopping. "Winning" means something different for everyone.

For me, the need to win is my ultimate motivation. And at this time, winning means doing everything I can in order to look my absolute best on stage.

What motivates you to train hard? Is it running a race you signed up for? Is it fitting into a size smaller clothes? Is it competing in your first competition or your twentieth? What does "winning" mean for you?

Check out what motivates some of the other Fitness Blog World ladies:


  1. Great blog!

    As I was training for my 1st competition everyone was saying I was crazy esp w/ the hardcore dieting & training. Winning for me at the 1st competition was just to compete.

    When I placed 2nd that was beyond winning for me.

    The next competition winning for me is going in a few pounds heavier & actually winning 1st place.

  2. Love it. I want to win too! :)

  3. Love this blog - you motivate me ! And you're so pretty! :)

  4. Winning to me means setting a goal and achieving it, improving my physique each time I step on stage, & knowing that I did everything in my power to be my best!


  5. Great blog, Kari!! You are an inspiration!!!
