What did I do today?

Thursday, October 24, 2013

It is cold out. At least the sun came out today. Cooper is snuggled in my lap, warming his paws from our last walk of the day. Feels like I didn't get much accomplished today, but the exercise streak lives on, so I must have done SOMETHING today. Does anyone else have days like that? Days where it feels like nothing is getting accomplished at the time, but then you look back and realize you did more than you thought?

Got a nice comment from my niece today while we were out walking. She said I was a really big influence in her life because I get her moving, whether it is walking, kayaking, snowshoeing, or skiing. It felt good to hear that she sees me as a positive influence in her life. That is all I really want to be remembered for when all is said and done.

I started my Christmas shopping today... it will creep up on me fast if I don't get started now.

    I've got my Christmas decorations up already, so I don't blame you for starting your shopping now.

    I know what you mean about your niece. One of my nieces checks in with me regularly (usually text messages) about her work outs or new foods she has tried. I have been focused on helping her maintain a positive self-image. She is surrounded by skinny girlfriends. She is really muscular and I have been on a campaign to help her understand that she will never have tiny,skinny thighs. The girl doesn't have any extra fat on her. Her thighs are very muscular because that is the way God made her, she runs 8+ miles several times each week and she spent 4 years running in the mountains of West Virginia when she was in college. And she has played competitive soccer since she was 10 years old - now she is 23.

    So... long response to, keep on being a great Auntie. Our nieces need us.
