I have this (annoying to my kids) habit of waiting for holiday sales to buy something for myself. So when I blogged about the BodyBugg on Day 29, they got worried that I might indulge. Which would ruin their surprise for me. 😉
So today Lyanne handed me a package to open. “Before you do something crazy,” I think she said.
Inside the package was the weight-watcher’s dream: a heart rate monitor that you wear around your ribcage and that comes complete with a watch that not only keeps time (evidently only ancient watches do only that!), but records the length, intensity and calories burned in my workouts, calculates my target heart rate zone, my average and max heart rate during a particular exercise session, how many times I exercised in a week and the week’s sessions’ total calorie expenditure and duration. I could go on…
What a great gift! I can hardly wait to try it out! Thanks, girls & guys!
BTW, I have an all-day-long job interview today. Wonder what my heart rate will be during that?? 😉
