Blog Challenge- Day 12

12. True or false: I like to be pushed. Elaborate.
Yes and no... I don't like other people telling me what to do, but I like to improve my time, weights, stamina and endurance. So, I don't like being pushed by someone else, but I like to push myself. This has worked pretty well for me so far. My race times improved this summer, and before I stopped going to the gym I was lifting more weight. I have also reached my goal weight and maintained that since May. Sometimes I wonder if I would be even stronger or even faster if I consulted an expert and let them push me, but I haven't messed with what has been working.
My arthritis is acting up today, so the pain combined with cold rain (36 degrees and pouring), made me decide to skip my run today. For some reason I am not feeling guilty about that. LOL! I took Cooper for a good walk this morning before the rain started, but this afternoon we have only been doing .5 mile walks. This is definitely his absolute least favorite weather. He spent a good part of the afternoon sitting in my lap. I left mom and dad the leftover stuffed squash I made on Saturday, plus the extra stuffing I didn't use. They ate the last of the squash last night, and mom repurposed the stuffing into a stew for lunch today. I like to make plenty of whatever I make them for lunch on Saturday so that they have leftovers. They both like it that way as well. There is a possibility of snow tonight and tomorrow. In fact I wish it would get cold enough to turn this cold rain into snow as Cooper will walk when it is snowing.
