Wearing the Garmin Heart Monitor helps motivate me!

My hubby purchased a Garmin heart monitor that has a band you wear under your shirt around your chest and a wrist monitor that you activate{after plugging it in for at least an hour}.Then it measures[ besides heart rate] calories burned for whatever activity you list-walk,run or bike{our uses}.

Can you Overeat on a special occasion & lose weight?

I PLANNED for the birthday cake and sausage pizza together by adding their totals on the Nutrition tracker AHEAD of time so I could "spend' my calories wisely while still enjoying myself!

as hard as you might think!

I have the most difficult time when "spending"my calories on dinner! I love that there are sparkrecipes available!To help myself,I check out the comment BEFORE making the recipe because that might help me alter it for my liking,my cholestrol level or my hiatal hernia--no spicy foods.

Award Reminders!

Sometimes when I overdo the calories,am on a plateau or just had a bad day,I take a look at the awards I've achieved so far and focus on what I HAVE ACCOMPLISHED and that helps pick me up!!!

Strength Training vs. Cardio -----the first month

Strength training raises your metabolism HIGHER so you burn calories LONGER. Cardio helps you burn calories FASTER but for shorter spurts. If you want to see results but can't stay in your caloric range for 1st month,this may help.
