And the case of the jumpies...

So....went on a field trip today with Austin's class....a classroom full of 3 and 4 year the pumpkin farm.  The Pumpkin Farm, Goebbert's, is perhaps the best pumpkin farm in the WORLD.  Love it.  Love it more when you get to see how excited little ones are at the animals, the pig races, and the Giant Pumpkin Eating Dinosaur.

But the funny part....well...let's start by saying that I have a FitBit.  It's awesome; logs my steps, calories burned based solely on my activity, and the flights of stairs that I have climbed.  For a female, it suggests clipping it on your bra, right between "the girls".   I like it there...out of the way, pretty accurate, and easy to check.  I put it on today because I was curious how many steps I would actually get in at the farm, and then basically forgot about it.  Halfway home, on the bus, I decided to check it, and the numbers were skyrocketing.  What?  How could I have done 56 flights of stairs already.  Oh...and there goes 57....

Well, after thinking for a minute, sitting in my seat in the back of the bus, a light bulb went off.  I am bouncing up and down in my seat.  The FitBit, snuggled in it's little nest, is also bouncing.  OMG.   My FitBit is counting my boobs bouncing as if they are going up stairs.  I could have died laughing.  Grand total today, 77 flights of steps!  Phew....isn't that like a giant building downtown?  And can I count that as my workout for the day?


  1. If you count the way I do you can! If you count the way Carrie does then not so much :)

  2. too funny...I find sometimes it is inaccurate as well but I love the bus ride and stairs!

  3. OMG that's too funny! Your boobs sure got a workout lol!

  4. Ha ha! Now that is a brilliant way of working out. lol. If only it actually burned that many calories. xx
