“You are a manipulator. I like to think of myself more as an outcome engineer.”
Wow, previously I posted about pairing my working (which is easy for me to do each day) with exercise, which is much more difficult because I am often working. In the earlier post, I showed the photo of my Kindle on the plastic shelf on my recumbent bike. It was easy for me to ride for 10 miles that day!
And then I thought – what about watching webinars or writing blogs, or updating my websites while I was riding my bike! Look what I found!
I now have a plastic tray that holds my Mac Air laptop. I decided to give it to myself for my birthday which is in February. I am not much of a shopper, but I do splurge around my birthday!
Okay! This is great! Let’s see how I do!
Share with me ways you get yourself to show up for your exercise routine.

“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.
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!
