“We often start too strong. We kind of forget that healthy living is a way of living and it’s something that takes time and evolves, and as you evolve, your habits and routines and everything that you do will evolve and change too. What we’re trying to do is try and fit into a mold that doesn’t work for you.” – Cecilie Jacobsen
“It’s about not starting off too strong; it’s finding small things and incorporate that into your lifestyle and make habits of it so that you don’t have to think about things.” – Cecilie Jacobsen
“As human beings, we’re designed to conserve energy. We’re not designed to exercise. It makes no sense from an evolutionary perspective to expend energy just for the sake of it.” – Cecilie Jacobsen
“Sit less, sit differently, and sit better.” – Cecilie Jacobsen
