It was such a nice day yesterday. It finally felt like spring here in the midwest, almost 60. So I didn't get to the gym, but took a long walk instead. Well, long for me & DS14, 30 min. I'm back to the gym today. It's my big workout day.
I want to buy stuff. I want a new HRM, my old one is only picking up half my heart rate. So when I'm at rest, it reads 30. I'd be almost dead! I've had it a year. Maybe it just needs new batteries. But I suspect the sensor on one side is shot. My friend at work recommended the Polar FT4. I've seen it on Amazon for $65. I also want some heavier dumbbells: 15 and 20 pound sets. That way I can a good workout at home, too. My pt has me doing step up and squats holding 20 pounds; and bicep curls & shoulder presses with 15 pounds.
And lastly, I have a yen for a fire pit. I have a romantic notion of sitting out on the patio at night with DS14 by the glow of the fire. But who am I kidding? He'd rather be inside sitting by the glow of the computer. And maybe me too. I'm just not an outdoorsy person.
Speaking of computers, I also want a new webcam. I have a little logictech, you know one of the ball shaped ones with rather poor quality. I'm thinking of getting a new one, and doing some vlog entries. I've seen this one on Amazon for $50. What do you think?
