Sure wish I'd thought to grab the Garmin on the way out the door! Heh.
I can already see that not having a daily mileage goal, as I did in October and November, has managed to trip me up. I know the average number of miles/day I must complete to meet the monthly goal, but I didn't set a daily goal. And now that average number is a little higher. Two-tenths of a mile, to be exact. Compulsive? Who, me?
On the other hand, I wasn't ambling from aisle to aisle. I was striding. And forgetting things. So there was a lot of backtracking. It was blowing snow, 27 degrees (with a wind chill of 15) and I was tired when I got home, and so I decided to take a day off.
I'm not sure how realistic December's goals are, given the weather. We'll just have to see. One day at a time, as they say.
Jane, who is a new reader here, has tagged me with four questions. I haven't been blog-tagged in years! Here goes:
1. Who has had the most influence in your life? In what way has the person (or people) influenced you?
It's difficult to choose, but I think my mother's mother, the only grandmother I ever knew, probably shaped my life more positively than anyone else. She was my best example of true unconditional love, and she certainly taught me what it takes to be a good grandmother.
2. What is your favorite quality about yourself? Similarly, what characteristic would you like to change, lose or modify?
I like to think I'm generous and willing to help when someone is in need. I'd like to be a better listener and to stop interrupting when I think I have something better to say.
3. When was the last time you cried?
I cry a lot lately, every day as a matter of fact, including yesterday. (And, as I completed this paragraph, now.) My father died September 10. Not a day goes by that I don't remember something sweet or silly that moves me to tears. I sure miss him.
4. What was your very best vacation ever and why?
Does a wedding trip count as a vacation? I haven't been on many vacations in my life, so the best one would have to be in August of 2006 when my now-husband and I flew to Las Vegas to be married. We had so much fun. We still do.If you'd like to ponder these questions on your blog, please consider yourself tagged!
