Jason had some insomnia the other night and bought me some things via Amazon. They’re all things I’ve talked about getting and I think it’s super sweet he did that for me. It was delivered as a total surprise!
I’m always borrowing his tools and half the time I can’t find what I need so now I have my own set. And they’re pink which pretty much guarantees that they’ll stay mine… 😉 haha I know this has nothing to do with working out but it was in the picture so…
I’ve wanted to try some more protein powder but I just hadn’t yet. (I had tried some years ago but I had never liked it. The flavor was always off and it didn’t mix well into anything. I’d heard that it had come a long way so I was ready to try it again.) He bought me the Fitmiss Delight Vanilla Chai with two shaker bottles. Let me tell ya…this stuff is great! It mixes better than anything I’ve ever had before, the taste is spot on and it’s only 90 calories a serving with 16 grams of protein. It’s also gluten free for those who need that. It is good to mix with water, almond milk or skim milk in the shaker bottles or to throw in the blender to do a smoothie.
I have been eyeing a Polar FT4 for quite some time now. I have a Garmin 110 for running but I wanted something specifically for weight lifting, gym classes, etc. I’ve seen a lot of people with the FT4 on Instagram and different blogs that I follow. I found this one on Amazon. I think I paid between $50 and $60 for it.
My first time using the watch and I burned 570 calories! I love knowing what I’ve burned and the fact that I can look back and compare. I’m also keeping a food & exercise journal. In it I make sure to write about how I feel physically, what I’ve eaten, if I took a class or not and whatever other exercises I’ve done.
Last night’s workout! This makes a total of 3 times I’ve used it and it seems to be working great. It’s easy to set up and navigate through the options. I love being able to look down at it during a workout and knowing how many calories I’ve currently burned. It makes me push harder. I want to do more and more.
