My Fitbit Charge HR

My daughter Nyle is an athlete and has had a Fitbit Charge HR for sometime to monitor her steps and her sleep and heart beat  then my Pastor got herself one and I heard all about how great they were so I went and bought myself one! Had to keep up with the Daughter, the Pastor and the Jones etc, even though I am an oldish couch potato.
 They are not cheap but are a lot of fun and very interesting to have. You wear them all the time and it records your heart beat day and night. Ofcause it counts all my steps and active times, and it tells me how much sleep I actually get, this has been a Revelation, I seem to get get way more sleep than I had ever dreamed of which is good.

I like the pretty purple colour on my wrist too, but I am wearing it way too high on my wrist, my Daughter showed me to  move it further up my arm for a correct reading, that is her much younger hand below. 

Already the Fitbit is working I have been encouraged to walk far more than usual just so I get a good reading, I never pass a flight of stairs now days without racing up the stairs as it raises my heart rate and it counts as a flight of stairs in my counter.
I am never going to be an athlete but I am going to be a little more active which is healthy, if I can lose some weight at same time it will be nice but unlikely.
I could use some more friends that have one of these wrist bands to give me more encouragement should you have one send me a friend request we can help each other..
To get the readings from your days activities you need to download ww,Fitbit.com on to your iphone. I find I am constantly checking how I am going during the day and can hardly wait to see how many hours I have slept during the night.

Half Marathon walk

Today is the last big event for the Merry Missionary Month of May, a sponsored walk done by Judy and Kate both from our Church.
Most members of ca our Church came out and joined in at some stage to encourage and support them. I also did twice along the way.

Sadly the weather didnt totally co-operate with us. It was a dull overcast day with bouts of heavy rain and strong winds at times it was quite pleasant for short bursts.

 I joined in at this point for a couple of km round the hilly scenic part, fortunately it was a fairly dry time.
 John made several signs ti encourage them and walked a coupe of km.
 a quick drink along the way.
 At the three quarters mark I rejoined the walkers in the pouring rain along with several others.

 Finishing line is the arches at our Church. Both ladies made it.

Wayne was waiting to welcome everyone with a great sausage sizzle, with some yummy onion plus some ginger crunch cake made by yet another .
A very successful day all around, masses of money made for our Missionaries in several countries.

My Unexpected Water Baptism!

Our Church held its Merry Missionaries Month of May swim this afternoon straight after church.

 We all drove around to Shelly Beach where lined up in readiness for the sponoured swim along thr sea wall. Eight of us ended up in the ocean swimming for sponsor money. I was one of them. and was the only woman until later an unexpected Lady rushed in!
 It was cold but not unbearable. So we all frolicked in the water swimming for a while

 When I got out Pastor Judy and Pastor Julian said why didn't I get water baptized since I was already soaked I said Pastor Judy was not dressed for the water so it could wait til another time.

 Before I knew what was happening Pastor Judy had dived into the sea and awaiting me to do the same, how could I refuse. . So I was Full Immerson Water Baptised today! Not something I had planned. Praise the Lord.

When we came out of the water several people prayed for me in my soaking wet condition.
I am glad I have finally done this after nearly 30 years of being a Christian.

There was even a video taken after we got out of the sea. But I cant seem to upload it at the moment, I shall try later.
Sorry about the green flashes I lent my phone camera to a lady who was very unfamiliar with them.

Beautiful Porsche

Our beautiful Silver Blue Burmese Cat Porsche, she has been in a very playful mood all evening. Weather is so mild at the moment, although it is Winter time we still have Summer weather and it seems she thinks it is Spring.

Same cat just different light.
