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.
