I am using the Arc Trainer quite a bit and have been kicking my heart rate up pretty high, so I got myself one of these in order to monitor it a bit better and stay in the range where I want to be for fat burning. And I can't wait to use it!
I have a streak going with my eating and drinking: I only drink when I am with the BF or out with friends, and I only indulge (in a restrained fashion) when I drink, so my weekdays are healthy and low cal a la the 17 Day Diet Plan. This is the third time I have followed it, and it makes my craving virtually disappear.
My meals are pretty routine: Greek yogurt with berries for breakfast, big salad with grilled chicken for lunch, baked fish and veggies for dinner, and hard boiled eggs for a snack. Other meals on nights out, and lots of water and tea in between it all. It feels good.
Tomorrow night is my night out with the BF, and I am looking forward to some wine and a special meal. He is a big support in my quest for a healthier weight and body composition, and thus I am hoping for a special yet goal-friendly meal together!
Once I get to try the new HRM, I'll let you know what I think. Until then, onward and downward (on the scale)!
