    They are a P.I.T.A. to figure out. I'm doing all right without one...just in case you wanted to take that thing back. I do still look down to my wrist to check my heart rate on a watch that isn't there sometimes...but the scale is being kind to me, so you just remember you don't *need* a gadget.

    I'm doing well, thanks for asking! I haven't blogged in way too long...I've been a terrible Sparker of late...

    Hope you are doing well! Have a fab weekend!

    I *did* have a heart rate monitor...I've had a few, actually, the last one broke...and it turns out you don't need one. I mean if you have disposable income and you want to splurge, by all means get one....I had a Polar FT40 most recently...but it kept "zeroing" out, which was hideously annoying as I couldn't get an accurate reading. The one I had before that did the same, bloody thing. I had a Polar F11 that was STOLEN out of my house that worked the best [for me], never had a problem with it, but the ones I've bought thereafter to replace it were crap. So! I now work out without the heart rate monitor. I felt naked at first...and even today I looked at my wrist ... and it wasn't there...but you don't need it.

    Here's the thing: it took me almost 4 years to lose 105+ pounds....and less than a year to gain 20.

    So right now, I'm doing 2 workouts a day, six days a week. You gotta kick the metabolism into overdrive...and that's how it's done. Negative thinking is a KILLA. Trust me .... take it from someone who knows.

    It took me 3.5 years to lose 105 pounds. Honestly. I fell off the wagon, so to speak, so many times. I reached an all time adult low weight of 130 last May...but within the last year I gained back 20 pounds of it....again, it's been a really bumpy ride.

    I have realized that ... I have to stay active in order to see results. I mean...I got to 130 eating cupcakes and dining out and eating bread and all sorts of icky things....but I was working out daily, my metabolism stayed lit up...BUT! I moved away and got out of routine...still ate out...still ate cupcakes...drowned my misery in alcohol...and didn't move...so...here I am again.

    It's funny...this time, I feel bigger than I did when I weighed 235+....I guess it's because I made it down to 130 and I was LITTLE for the first time my entire adult life? Anyway. My 00's and 0's and 2's no longer fit. I'm putting in 2 daily workouts in order to get there again. It's doable. When you fall off the wagon, make sure you learn something from it as I have. Don't b*tch don't feel like throwing in the towel...just get right back to it. Remember to move ... EVERY. FRICKIN'. DAY!!!

    Hardest damned thing I've ever had to do. But it's doable, kid. Have some faith in yourself. chalk everything up to experience, and treat every day as a new opportunity to be your best self!
