How do you keep motivated?

So I missed writing a blog post last night.  I went out to dinner with some friends and so that put me off my game a little.  I did however walk home afterwards so I was able to meet my activity goal for the day.

Once I got home I did some work on one of my small businesses.  I did some planning for a website I want to start also.  I went out to a professional site and reached out to find someone who could help with design.  That is a major piece of the puzzle that I can’t do.

The one thing I noticed over the last couple days was that I hadn’t turned on the television.  The television is always my downfall.  Once it comes on I get sucked into it and almost never leave.

Tonight I walked all the way home from the BART stop.  That’s about 1.5 miles with some pretty decent hills.  Once I got home I was exhausted and I made myself dinner.  While food was warming up I checked on some stuff on my laptop.  Well I found that it was frozen and so I fooled with it for a while before getting rebooted and one thing lead to another and you guessed it, I ended up on the couch with the TV on.

So now as I was discussing it earlier I need to find a happy middle ground where I can do a little work and rest watching TV or what have you each evening.  This way I don’t end up resenting any of my goals and get some down time since I do work 40 hours a week on top of everything else.
