I never do what I say I am going to

I always say I am going to do something and then.......

I don't
I have no idea why I do this to myself
I say I am going to finish reading something 
and then I don't
I say I am going to write
and then I don't
I say I am going to stop at just two cookies
and then I don't
I say I am going to eat more vegetables
and then I don't
I say I am going to stop buying shoes
and then I don't
I say I am going to work harder
and then I don't
I say I am going to call my Mom more
and then I don't
Why do I do this?
I don't know
Maybe I have a complete lack of motivation
I work all day and then plan on doing these things when I get home
but then the sofa calls my name and the next thing I know its time to go to bed
I lay there and chastise myself for accomplishing nothing and promise myself that 
tomorrow is another do 
but it just ends up like the day before
wake up
drop boy off at school
go to work
drive home
eat dinner
do homework with boy or help him study for a test or whatever
walk into Mom Cave
grab remote
watch TV
go to bed
It is really sad

I need to figure out how to get out of this slump!
Winter is coming and that usually severely decreases my motivation.

Do you have any ideas?
What can I do to break free of this melancholy that has me by the throat?

I am like this sometime too! And it's quite frustrating but it does not seem to change even if we are aware of it.
What I do now is a list of all the things I have to and would like to do, I put it on my wall, so when I feel lazy I say to myself, come on grab a pen and do 1 on the list.
And I always try to think, it's just a matter of willingness. If I want I can!!!!

You will work something out I am pretty sure!

I think that it has got something to do with winter. I wouldn't worry. The problem is that we do too many things and something has got to give.
Sometimes, we need a rest. Give yourself a break! Take care.

There was a study done recently that showed pretty definitively that will power is finite. It sounds to me like you are using up all of your will power at work and have nothing left over for yourself. If this is the case, you need to find a way to renew your will power.

we will achieve world piece, triumph over all Evil, and all other sorts of cool stuff :)
