Motivation is very hard. I found that walking right after work was the best thing I ever did. I would get out some things that needed to "warm up" for dinner, get the dog and take off for 30-45 minutes. This is an hour when the weather is good. No one missed dinner at precisely the right time and I found that I had a ton more energy and felt immensely better. I never thought feeling better, more alert and having energy to do all the things that I didn't do during the time I walked would be a benefit of walking, but it is.

I never regretted the minutes I took to walk in the evening.

I work full-time and by the time I get home I'm tired and don't feel like doing anything else. I cook dinner and wash dishes and then watch tv. I'm stuck in a rutt that I created myself and I don't know how to get out of it. I need more energy to get things done. Any suggestions?
