Cody and I went to my parents house for Thanksgiving and we spend about 5 days there. I love spending time with family, however they do not have the same priorities in eating that I've come to cherish. This created a challenge for me over Thanksgiving with candy bowls throughout the house, and cheese in a can with ritz crackers, yum. To combat this I asked my sister to be my "substitute" workout buddy for the week and she agreed. Yesterday when I got on the scale I was actually at my goal weight, and today I was 1 pound under it, so I guess my ploy worked. While we were away the heart rate monitor that I ordered came in the mail, I used it yesterday and it was very helpful to see where my heart rate was and to see how many calories I burned. This is an investment I'm happy with.
