Just Do It!

I left work feeling like my brain was fried, literally. Huge project I've been working on the past 2 days has literally depleted all the brain cells I had left. As I'm driving home, I'm thinking how I don't want to walk, I want to just lay on the couch and watch TV. I was trying to think of every excuse not to walk. I called my hubby and told him I was headed home and that I was going for a walk. I figured that was halfway to actually doing it - if I told him I was walking, I had to do it.

Got home and looked at the couch for a minute and really contemplated laying on it and not getting up for a few hours. But alas, I did not. I could not ignore Blue barking, expecting to go on our daily afternoon walk, or the fact that I NEEDED to walk.

So I changed my clothes and off we went. It was hot and humid and I was not totally into it, but the farther I walked, the better I felt. Each step I took made me happier that I did not listen to my inner evil voice and lay on the couch.

I will remember this the next time I don't want to walk and I'll tell myself JUST DO IT! And there will be no excuse because I know I can.


  1. I was feeling very similar.. I did NOT want to go out and deal with wogging, but I knew I needed to and I will appreciate it when I get on the scale Sunday and when I go again on Thursday for my next interval training...

  2. I need to get back into walking again... But it's so hard to find the time, more often than not. And then when I finally do find the rare free moment, I've then lost all drive b/c I'm so exhausted. More hours in the day, please. Heck, I haven't even had time to do something as simple as blogging in weeks...
