What A Day!

Friday, April 04, 2014

Normally Thursday is one of my favorite weekdays. On Thursday's our home golf course hold a captain's choice tournament and we have 30 t0 50 players. Yesterday it was cloudy , but, according to our weatherman the rain that was showing on our weather map was way high and would never reach the ground. We had played only two holes until he was proved wrong! Yep.... emoticon

We are diehard golfers so out comes the rain gear emoticon and we continue. On the next hole I realized I had forgotten to bring my Fitbit Zip. emoticon This is major for I usually have most or all of my 10,000 daily steps when we complete 18 holes. I called my husband and asked if he could please come , bring Zip, and get a cart and come on the golf course and bring it to me. He reminded me he wasn't home but in a town near us. emoticon Since we live next door to the golf course I was able to run home at the 9 hole turn and get the Zip. emoticon

I walked all I could on the back nine and only got 7,000. All ended well however, because when my DD came over for the visit we had planned to carry my mother out to dinner DD mentioned she had not had time to get her daily run in. We decided there would be enough daylight left after the visit with Mom to go to the park. We walked 1.5 miles in 35 minutes and both felt better. At the end of day I had over 14,000 steps on the tracker and burned 1940 calories. emoticon

    Awesome. I have had occasions when I left my FitBit home and I am so tempted to turn around and go and get. I have to be reasonable and calm myself and say, your body will know. But this Fitbit is addictive. Glad you were able to get it and still get a record 14K you probably did like 20K steps in all.

    That means you probably got close to 20000 steps in if you didn't count what you did on the front 9. emoticon Have a wonderful time at the Masters. Can't wait to hear all about it. We'll have to plan a walk soon.

    You are too honest! I would have doubled the steps on the back 9 to account for the ones on the front nine. You are doing great!!!!
