Heart Rate Monitor

Psalm 37:4,7
Delight yourself also in the Lord, and He shall give you the desires of your heart. Commit your way to the Lord, trust also in Him, and He shall bring it to pass ... Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him

Good morning everyone!!!

I have forgot to tell you that I got a heart rate monitor and LOVE it!! I would recomend anyone get one. If you have been thinking about getting one, go for it! I have always wondered if the calorie burns on http://www.myfitnesspal.com/ (where I record everything) was right or not. I have read on there that many of the burns were off. I didn't want to over estimate what calories I was burning and over eat. I don't eat all of my exercise calories back but I do eat some of them some times. It is really nice to see how many calories I personally burn according to my own heart rate. Some times I burn less than My Fitness Pal has estimated and some times I burn more. This HRM is great!!

My heart rate monitor isn't a big fancy one. It is a simple watch HRM from Wal-Mart.  I have tested it and counted my plus and compared it to what the monitor said. It was dead on. I have seen HRM in many different stores. I even saw one in CVS once. This one is a Sportline and was around $27 and some change. It works great for me.



It is a S7 slim. 7-Function ECG Heart Rate Watch. Patented One-touch Heart Rate + Calorie Monitor. It has 1. One touch heart rate monitor, 2. calorie burn monitor, 3. % of max heart rate indicator, 4. Laser tuned stopwatch, 5. Count down timer, 6. Time and date, and 7. Daily alarm. I haven't used the alarm or stopwatch. I love everything I have used so far!! It is a great help. You can't even get a good watch for that price so I'm happy with it.

My goals for today are 1200 calories, 40 grams of fat, 30 grams of fiber, 10+ cups of water and Day 1 of P90X.

Yes I said P90X. Keep your fingers crossed that I make it out alive. lol I watched the workout this morning and WOW! I'm really scared now.

Hang in there! You are worth it!
