Last week I was enjoying the treadmill so much, I went for an extra day just because. What’s up with THAT?! I’ll take it.
I’m sure it had something to do with wanting to play with my new toy. I finally bit the [midnight internet shopping] bullet and bought myself a Polar Heart Rate Monitor. Call it a belated Christmas prezzie to myself!
How could I resist a pink cutie like this? I mean, come on!
It’s so nice to finally have an accurate calorie count for my workouts…makes it so much easier to log and meal plan. I also really enjoy watching my heart rate and planning my cardio days for low vs high intensity. Totally worthwhile gadget!
So here we are a full month into my new gym membership and workout routine. Yesterday was the very first day where a planned workout was foiled and I actually got grumpy about it. My gym time is precious and I don’t like it being taken away! I did everything in my power to get my make-up session today. 500 calories, take that!
Oddly, I think I look thinner on Day One. I blame my stance. :)
Happy thoughts for this week:
- There’s always another time for a missed workout.
- I lost another pound.
- Hummus was on sale.
- I burn more calories than the gym equipment told me.
- Our vacation is just 16 days away.
