Motivational Speech

Sometimes I lack the motivation to go on a walk. 
Like, right now.
It's just to the library.  It's not that far away. But far enough, that I keep trying to talk myself out of it.
But overall, I know that it would be to my benefit.
How do you motivate yourself to do things, especially when you keep trying to talk yourself out of it? 
And now, another Michael picture to top off the post. I love his plaid pants.

I am in the same plight, I have no advice to give.

I reward myself, usually with candy. Its kind of counter-productive if you are trying to exercise for weight loss, though.

i have a quote up that i see all the time, it's from grey's anatomy, yeah, the sleezy medical soap opera... anyway, it says "endorphins are good." and i remind myself that i ALWAYS feel better after i get out and get some physical exercise - and get those endorphins going! and i NEVER regret getting a little physically active.
ps, love the picture of litle michael. babies are always so top heavy!!! too cute!

lol that is exactly what did today! No joke! and the destination was the library. Its always such a dilema. I know it would be good for me and fun for Amelia but its still hard to get motivated. thankfully I didn't have to work too hard to talk myself out of it cause Tim forgot to leave the stroller and he took the car to school when I went to get ready to go. Maybe next time we'll make it. I guess we just need to bite the bullet and decide that it will make us happy. I always get happy once I'm on the walk. I can find joy in the seasonal colors and such. Plus as a mother, its healthy to get out of the house more often than not!
