Thursday ponderings..........

Thursday, February 28, 2013

Well, I just received my new heart rate monitor and I am currently wearing it. I figured I would wear it for 24 hours and monitor my heart rate. I purchased it so that when I was working out I could monitor whether or not I was in my targeted range to burn fat. When I was younger and very fit, I tended to exercise out of my range (anaerobic) but now that I am older and wiser I decided I had better monitor it, hopefully for, maximum results......I will keep you posted.

On another front I signed up and was selected for the Spring Biggest Loser competition. It runs for 10 weeks and has goals that you try to attain each week. I am on the Tangerine team. Since I am fairly new to this site I really do not know a whole lot about these challenges. I guess I will be finding out, huh? While I am excited to do this, I have some trepidation, especially regarding the cardio. My knee has not exactly been cooperative, so I guess I will have to resort to our Wii for boxing and such. I hope that I have not bitten off more than I can chew! I certainly do not want to let my team mate(s) down!!

If any of you have any suggestions please feel free to let me know!

Have a great day and Thanks for stopping by!

    First I love your Tangerine page. The Bicycle, Heart & Shoes all tangerine, very creative. Off course on a back drop of tangerines. Great blog and great thoughts of monitering your heart during exercise. I do to some extent as well but not all the time. Good luck with keeping track of it. I am on the tangerine team with you and I have worried abount the same things of biting off more than I can chew, but I know we can all do it. We do not have to be perfect just motivatied. As we are motivated we get closer to our goals. I think this team will help keep me motivated as well as everyone else. When I am around people working hard it tends to make me want to work hard as well. Hang in there we will do it together!! Susan aka Sparkinator

    You will NEVER let your team mates down!!! Being part of a team does not always mean being competitative, I have learned that being supportive to others brings huge awards for me and to others also. Is all a learning process what works for some does not necessarily work for others. Communication is always key. PLus never exercise if it hurts or possibly could hurt. Modify, modify, modify till you find which exercises work for you best and help strengthen possible weaker areas like your knee.

    Go glad you are on the team with us!! emoticon
