Here are Clare’s 7 motivational words of wisdom

Check out these 7 motivational sayings that Clare lives by…

1. Make your goals and never lose sight of them.

You need to ask yourself why are you doing this. Yes, you want to be healthy and yes, you want to be a smaller size, but why? Think about what you want and what you want to achieve. 

2. Banish excuses from your life.

Your goals need to be bigger than your excuses. They won’t get you to where you want to be.

3. Nothing worth having ever came easy.

You have to work for it.

4. Enjoy the journey.

When you enjoy it, it never becomes a chore.

5. Be prepared.

Every journey has bumps in the road. Stick it out and push through.

6. Never lose hope.

Don’t be disheartened if it takes longer than you want. If you make changes to your lifestyle and diet and get fitter, the rest will happen. It takes time.

7. Love yourself now, tomorrow and the next day.

Don’t wait to lose the kilos or fit in that dress to love who you are. Life is too short to waste a second being unhappy.

“My goals are big. They don’t involved being a certain size, they are all about being the fittest, healthiest version of me I could be,” says Clare.

“This isn’t just a dream or a wish, it is a goal I intend to see through.”
