Motivational Quotes About Health & Exercise

Okay…I have a list of quotes for various parts of my life that I need to work on. I keep them handy in a binder. Sometimes I read through the whole list. Sometimes I just look at the ones I need at the moment. Since my last couple of posts have been about health and exercise, here are my top 15 favorite quotes about that.  Some are good to contemplate. Some are humorous. Healthy living is a journey. Laughter is good medicine, so why not a funny quote about it? In fact, I’ll start the list with my favorite funny quote. (I think it’s funny anyway. Could be my strange sense of humor, though. )
