New Heart Rate Monitor

So, I finally broke down and bought myself a Polar FT4 heart rate monitor and watch. I LOVE it!! It is pink, most importantly, but a side bonus is that I am able to see in real time my recovery from running, squats, burpees, etc.

Now, the only thing that I think will get a little annoying is that I am signalled when my heart rate changes, every time! But I LOVE that at the end of my workout I can see the length of the workout, the calories burned, average heart rate and high/low heart rate. It is crazy how quickly I can get my heart rate pumping, but also cool how quickly I recover and it gets back into a more acceptable rate.

I have workout number 2 with it tonight, can't wait to compare the two.. Tonight is Core/Cardio, so should have some good movement!

Such a slacker poster...

Well, if any one individual might have been following my blog, they are surely long gone by now.. LOL.

We have been so busy lately, this is the one thing that has fallen by the wayside. I am still working out, still 'following' weight watchers, still busy with kids, hubby, family, work...

I can say that I have not lost much weight this summer, but the good news is I have not gained ANY weight.. I recently started Shaun T's new Focus T-25 workout and I love it! Dave is actually doing it with me which makes it fun. Now, we were great last week, but this week has gotten in the way.. I think we will start the program over next Monday and get it going..

The girls are great, getting bigger everyday and sassy.. Man are they sassy.... They start 'school' in September, and I am so excited for them to get into a classroom setting. It should be interesting...

Anyway, not much else to report today. I am going at lunch to buy a heart rate monitor watch, will post what I picked later!
