If I really don't want to go outside to walk. I bargain with myself. If I walk out the front door and still do not want to go for a walk then I can go back inside the house. Usually this is all it takes. Once outside I feel the sun or chilly weather, hear the sounds of birds or cars etc. Once out the front door I am good to go. Try it you will be amazed.

This song can push me when I am ready to stop or push me when I don't want to exercise. "Put One Foot in Front of the Other"
Put one foot in front of the other And soon you'll be walking cross the floor Put one foot in front of the other And soon you'll be walking out the door
The rest of the song can be googled. I like all the words to this one, but could not include them all, due to the space constraint. This is just a kid's song but the words have a lot of wisdom in them.
We have plants on our front porch. Instead of going out the front door to water them daily, I go out the back door, walk around the house to the porch and back again. Gives me a few more steps each day.
