Four Hours in the Right Direction

Wednesday, September 18, 2013

I just got home from a golf invitational. I placed last but was still under 100 for the day. I was expecting to be over 100 but being under really made my day.

What was not expected was to come home and log my four hours on the golf course. It didn't seem right...4 hours on the course came to 1700 calories burned. Maybe a 3rd of that, but that seemed high. But it is still in the right direction. And my body is saying I did more than sit at a desk all day today.

It was a nice break from the daily monotony of a working stiff kind of week. One of the cool things were the prizes. The Pacers are my home team and I now own an autographed photo from the entire team from this past winning season. I would have preferred the autographed basketball by Larry Bird, but that's a whole other story. LOL!

The nice thing is that I'm seeing a difference in my healthy choices this past week. So far, I'm 2 lbs down from where I was just this past weekend. And I know I could possibly eek out another pound if I'm really good between now and Saturday when the final 8 week challenge weigh in occurs.

This challenge has definitely had it's ups and downs. I know I'll see ONEderland again real soon. I made it there this challenge, who says I can't in the next challenge. Number one goal is to STAY below 200.

    I've never been golfing, but I think it would be fun to take some lessons and learn. It's definitely got to be a good break from sitting at a desk. I'm glad you enjoyed the day!

    You are doing SO great...just keep that pretty little determined chin tilted up towards the sun and you'll get to goal in no time! We are all in this together Brenda...we'll all support each other through the end!

Way to go on golfing emoticon who knew it burned so many calories...I don't golf down here in FL because everyone rides the cart and I like to walk my game.

I'm really really proud of you! emoticon emoticon emoticon

    That is great news! I'm so proud of you for "moving your body" and making such great strides towards being more healthy and from perspective being below 100 is pretty awesome!
