1/30- This was a not a very productive day for me and it could have been. I was very positive upon waking and then around 10am a message was left on our answering machine that ticked me off! Without getting into it here, it was someone 'pretending' not to know something that they very well do and 'playing' the part of 'poor me'. So that just peeved me off for the rest of the day. I should've used my negative energy to work out, but I had so many other things I had to do around the house that I focused on those things.
1/31- My Mom has the cold that my daughter and I had last week, so she couldn't watch my 5 yr old. I decided to get some shopping done for things that have been long overdue (kitchen place mats, tablecloth, and a bunch of other odds & ends). I got most of the items on my list including a heart rate monitor. However, after reading reviews on the one I bought, I think I will be returning it today and try to get a different one. Apparently having a chest strap is important, and the one I bought was just a wrist watch type. I am surprised at how expensive heart rate monitors are! This is the one I am thinking of getting:
So, although I don't believe I lost any weight in January, I did jump start my exercise again, which was my main goal. I DID earn the January JumpStart Challenge Trophy and I am focused on LOSING this extra weight this year. Not giving up, not giving in, just moving on!
