In addition to the 1212 in 2012 FB Challenge which I’ve joined (OK, it’s been 35 days and I’m finally admitting I’m going to try to achieve this, Karma DO NOT read this post) I’m also trying to do At Least A Mile A Day in 2012 (Karma, I’ll kick your ass, I’m telling you: Do Not Read This Post)
Because I only do things 500% or Zero at any given moment.
It’s a grey drizzly day, with thunderstorms earlier and rain/drizzles all day long. The kind of day that makes your brain feel dull and spongy and your eyeballs blurry.
Today was my day to walk at least a mile – it’s my day off from running and the idea is not the distance but the mental discipline of MOVING.
Moving. One foot in front of the other. And walking to the laundry room doesn’t count.
Feet. Moving. Outside. At least a mile. JUST a mile.
Except – I forgot.
Up at OMG O’clock (DAMN CAT) (DAMN THUNDER) I did some work at the computer and then worked a race, went to eat afterward, then groceries and home, put it all away, back to the computer for some more work, laundry, straighten the house, do the putzing female thing fluffing pillows, kids are coming over tomorrow, make chilli, bake some bread…and suddenly hubs comes home – and it’s 6:30. How The H&ll did that happen?
It’s 55 degrees out with a slight drizzle as opposed to this date last year when we were slip slidin’ away on ice – and I FORGOT to walk a mile. I didn’t miss the mile because I was slammed with ice/snow/sleet – I FOR. GOT.
And Hubs says, “OK. Let me get my jacket. Let’s walk the dog.”
Mile. In the books. Hubs rocks.
