Guilt – Motivator or Deterrent

“Everyone needs a dog to walk them!”

This morning I looked at my calendar and there was a dilemma. I could fit my exercise in between clients in the afternoon, but I wouldn’t have time to shower afterward. Being in the north, I don’t adjust so well to the hot summer heat. The easy solution would be to use my recumbent bike instead, but then Domingo wouldn’t get his walk.

Rarely do I succumb to guilt, but in the case of walking Domingo, it’s difficult to avoid. Those beautiful, lovey, brown eyes turn into intense directives and he nudges me out the door.

Mom, let's go!

Mom, let’s go!

Gratefully today though, I see he is still satisfied from the long walk yesterday. His 12 years are catching up with him. I’ll take the bike and finishing reading Cracking India!

So in the case with Domingo, guilt is definitely a motivator. It is interesting the many ways we can be held accountable and motivated. Help me out with some more.

1. Athletic trainer!

2. Committing with each other on this blog!

3. Being a good dog mom or dog dad!
