Time for my second post! This one will be solely focusing on my PAT from this weekend, because I was sick all week (wasn’t completely cleared until Friday) and wasn’t able to get to the course. I wasn’t sure if I was gonna have the energy to walk 18 on back to back days, but I couldn’t get a doctors note because they said “we’ve already cleared you”, so I didn’t have much of a choice. And I knew going in it wasn’t going to be easy.
Sat.: Not much to say about this round. Front nine was cons
@ 2 weeks left for Stage 4 and the weight goal seems to be a miss. I've plateaued @ 225 and see no way I can drop 10 lbs in 2 weeks. I'll take comfort in the fact that I am not gaining even though my activity level has been low. Also, I could "Claim" success since my initial goal was 225 but I did officially revise that down to 215 and I'm not going to backtrack just to claim success.
I've yet to swing a club. Was going to try last weekend but just did not. I really hope to start swing
I will not even spend much time looking for my ball if I figure it will be unplayable.
1) no desire to get ticks, poison ivy etc. going into the woods. A player in northern Michigan got attacked by bees when he ventured into some woods, it did not end well. Just not worth it.
2) I play 1 specific ball and if I had several random balls in my bag I would eventually forget what ball I grabbed then risk hitting a wrong ball.
3) Three words “ Pace of Play”
3 weeks in and a little behind on the weight goal. Was hoping to drop 3lbs per week but only managed to average lbs per week.
the issue is I just can’t push hard enough to get the heart rate up to burn a lot of calories. Before the surgery I was routinely burning 3400 per day while barely doing 6 miles. Yesterday I had to do three sessions on the stationary bike had to get to 9 miles to burn the 3400 calories. (I tell my FitBit it is a treadmill and it is counting steps to get miles,
I like how Nick Faldo described this in a magazine article I think it was back in the day - fulfill your half of the bargain - he meant hit the best putt you can. It's up to the ball and the green whether it goes in or not, but you have no control over that. So fulfill your half of the bargain and you hit a good putt whether it goes in or not.
