Harry Potter and My Little Motivators

Saturday morning at 7am Fred Meyer opened. My dear and wonderful husband was there, purchasing the final installment in the Harry Potter series. I have read and read and read. All I can say is that there is no better way to end such a spectacular series. End of comment!

This afternoon I decided to walk on the treadmill while I re-read parts of my Harry Potter book. (note book in picture) (I read so fast yesterday that I needed to go back to some parts) When I get done with the walking, the boys always want a turn walking. Today was no different so I let them have a go. Watching them be so excited to walk on this silly treadmill made me think about how sometimes it's such drudgery to me and I needed to change my attitude. These kids love to walk and be active. Why can't I be that way too? So, I took pictures of them, printed them and hung them on my wall. I want to be like them. Excited to do something that will only improve my health and make me feel better. I guess this is just another reason we've been instructed to be as little children! Pictures are below.

Oooooooo! I'm so glad that you are a Harry Potter fan! I loved the book. It was insanely long to undertake in one reading, but I was happy for all the details. I agree that she could totally start a new series from her epilogue, but I somehow doubt that she will. She keeps saying that lightening only strikes once and she knows that she'll never create another "Harry Potter" phenomenon. It really did end so well. I was FREAKING out towards the end, though, I tell you what! We'll have to talk about it more when most every normal person has had a chance to read the book and find out the ending for themselves.

I also love your thoughts on exercise. Kids are so smart, aren't they? Take care and enjoy your summer.
