I didn’t have the time to exercise today and frankly, after a week of very little exercise, I was feeling the effects. First, I am used to playing darts twice a week.
To most people, darts is not a very good exercise. But when I go a week without picking up my 25 gram steel-tips, I notice the weight. I played Monday and Wednesday. When I finished singles Wednesday night, my arm was a bit sore. I will also say that darts lasts about 2 hours each night. So, I repeatedly throw a 25-gram projectile, 7 feet and some odd inches, for 2 hours. My right arm muscles are more developed than my left. I’d like to find a counter for them, just to see how many times I actually throw it at the board, but I’m not that inventive. And I’m lazy.
Back to the story… I didn’t exercise today. We had service people here for most of the morning switching our cable to satellite. The afternoon was spent working.
My SO goes to bed and I decide I’m going to jog around my living room to get my exercise. I manage fifteen minutes. This is a feat for me. I’m huffing, puffing, sweating, my heart rate is elevated, and I am feeling every second of it. It was a struggle. The timer on my phone is the only thing that kept me going. I had planned 20 minutes, but I failed and I’m okay with that.
I type the exercise into FitBit. No activity points show up on Weight Watchers. It tells me I’ve burned 89 calories. Holy shit. I tortured myself for that?!? Um, no. I delete it from FitBit and add it to Weight Watchers. Jogging earns me 4 activity points. That’s much better. I think Weight Watchers needs to work on their integration with FitBit.
