Moving Every Day

Wednesday, January 23, 2013

The heart rate monitor and Fitbit are still working wonderfully. I enjoy using them every day to hit my goals. I'm looking forward to upping my step goal to 20,000 steps in February and slowly working on understanding and using the heart rate monitor every day.

Increasing My Steps and Mowing

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

I'm using the heart rate monitor and increasing my steps a bit already. I missed the last 2 days because we had a grown up night on Saturday and I tend to lose all self-control on grown up night. I went out with the best intentions - 2 drinks and lots of visiting. Somewhere in there 2 drinks turned into a few more. It was great fun but I could not move the next morning, much less get in my steps! So I decided today to just try for 18,000 steps, so I could bring my average daily steps back up. I hit 20,000 steps fairly easily. 20,000 is the goal I'm planning on moving to for February and maintaining, so I may try to hit it a few more times this month.

We just purchased a new lawn mower so I thought I'd mow today to increase my steps. I wore the heart rate monitor while I mowed just to see. I've never felt like mowing was that much of an exercise, so I was shocked by the results on hrm. I was in my target zone almost the whole time! Now my yard will stayed mowed more often while I hit my goals!

20,000 Steps Today!

Friday, January 18, 2013

I hit 20,000 steps today!

And I love the Heart Rate Monitor! I was able to keep my heart rate in my target zone even during my walk today. That was great. It helped to keep me from slowing down and walking too slow, which helped me to increase my steps for the day. Win/Win!

Heart Rate Monitor

Friday, January 18, 2013

My HRM came in today and it works beautifully. I wore it while I walked and tracked my HR. It was about where I expected it - lower than my target heart rate. I wore it on the stationary bike and it was perfect. I was right where I needed to be! I'm going to start tracking my HR on paper for a while and work all of this out to make sure I'm steadily increasing my fitness levels throughout the year. I love tracking things and I love Sp for everything else they help me to track!

    an HRM is a wonderful tool to help with your fitness goals. I know it really helps keep me in the "zone" during a workout!

Still Waiting on my HRM

Thursday, January 17, 2013

My HRM should come in tomorrow. My first order was cancelled by the shipper due to understocking, so I had to order another one and it's supposed to be here tomorrow! I really want to know how effective my workouts are and what I can do to improve.
