While wandering through the store yesterday to purchase birthday presents, I somehow ended up in the 'fitness' section.
A quick look at the videos was enough, after all, I've been able to find all the videos that I've needed of late here on SparkPeople.
The next area was full of jump ropes, bands and sauna suits... so I didn't even slow down there. A quick glance at the adjustable dumb-bells (a little something to keep in mind for my birthday and Christmas lists) and I just kept moving.
Then... for some reason a hanging display caught my eye and next thing you know, I'm looking at the heart rate monitors. Do I need it? No. Would it be nice to have? Sure. So I picked up one, strapped it to my wrist and played with it the rest of the night.
So, while my purse is a bit lighter, I am too because between the hula hoop, the jogging in place and the running up and down the stairs to check my heart rate out, I managed to burn 856 calories... and I know this because my new toy told me so!
