New Personal Best

Sunday, March 23, 2014

Today I started exercising right after I got up. Watched a Perry Mason while still in my pajamas to get a good start on my step count. Then after showering and dressing I did 2 more episodes. I wanted to go to the library around 2 so I finished up and went to discuss the library with DD. And I promptly fell asleep while sitting in the sun with the cat on my lap. Darn cat. I even had my coat on. Slept for 2 hours. 2 hours! By then I was behind on steps since I had counted on getting a couple thousand while out and about. Then oldest DD called about dinner since she comes over every Sunday for dinner. Yikes, where was the day going to?

Anyway I had 5,000 more steps to get in to reach 20,000 for the day so I headed back downstairs to hang with Perry again. Two episodes later (or was it 3?) I was hovering at 27,000. 3,000 more steps and I will set a new record for myself but I didn't want to watch anymore television. Came upstairs and looked outside - starting to get dark out but still light enough to walk to the corner and back a couple of times. So I put on my coat and my outside walking shoes and headed off. Did a couple of laps (with a flashlight) and came back home to check my FitBit with the porchlight. 29,737. So I ran up and down the sidewalk next to the garage. Up and down. Up and down. Rechecked - 30,051! New personal best for me!

So even though I fell asleep and lost a couple of hours I still managed to have a great day. And now I know why cats love to lay in the sun - it just feels good.

    Love it! I've been taking naps and sleeping better at night since stepping up the exercise. Could that be why you're taking these lovely unexpected naps? If so, great reason! emoticon emoticon emoticon
