Good Morning Bloggies! I have an AWESOME giveaway for you today. As you all know, I recently received the MIO Motion heart rate monitor for Christmas. Well this week was the first week I put it to use-and let me tell ya, I was surprised! I always knew the calorie tracked on work out machines were wrong, but I NEVER thought they were as wrong as they are. Today, I put my MIO on, went down to our workout room and ran for about 30 minutes getting in just under 3 miles (remember, I am just starting-so baby steps ), the treadmill said I burned 325 calories. After my run, I decided to take a look at my MIO and it said I burned 175 calories-thats a 150 calorie difference. I was shocked but relieved at the same time. Now, I know where I am at and don’t have to wonder if the machine was off by 200 or more calories.
How would you like to see if your workouts were what you thought? Thats right-I am giving away this awesome gadget:
