Just get out there and do it - thanks to my doggies!

I really didn't want to go for a walk today. My hamsting is tight and it looks like it's about to rain... and, and, and... I thought of a million reasons. Then I thought about that shirt I wore the other day that was too tight a few weeks ago and those pants I can fit into now... I was looking at the dogs and I said (out loud) that's it, I'm just going to go for a walk and that's that. Of course, you can't say the word "walk" in this house without the dogs running over to their leashes! For a second, I wished I hadn't said that out loud, but there was no turning back at that point! Out we went and so glad we did. The feeling you get when you finish a workout of any type is just wonderful. It's accomplishment. It's satisfaction. It's joy that you're doing the right thing. It's so many things... So, I will make it a point to tell the dogs out loud that I'm going for a walk! Motivated by my pups, that's awesome!
Their enthusiasm is contagious! I'm sure they'd go for a walk immediately after coming home from a walk. I can't say I've ever been quite that motivated but I sure do love walking my two dogs.
