Oh hey…it’s Wednesday. My apologies for the lack of Weight Weight Wednesday posts and link-ups over the past several weeks. I’ve been trudging along without many positive thoughts to share, which probably means that I should really have been writing about how things are going.
Only 2 short weeks until I leave for NYC and BlogHer ’12 and zero chance I will make the weight loss goal I set for myself (unless anyone knows where I could acquire a tapeworm). I’ve been losing the same three pounds for the past month. So frustrating!
But I’m trying to remain positive. I’ve been eating a lot cleaner and cutting out most carbs. So even though I’m not seeing the results on the scale, I do feel better which is definitely nice.
I have been really inspired lately by one of my “competitors” in our BlogHer weight loss challenge, Courtney from Believe, Trust, Change. You should definitely go check out her blog. Courtney started her weight loss journey at a similar weight to my current weight and she is totally rocking her journey. She has a personal goal to burn 500 calories a day and her workout posts alone make me tired! To track her calorie burn, she uses a Polar FT4F Heart Rate Monitor. Amazon has these for around $65, which Courtney says is a great price. I’m considering getting one because I love the idea of challenging myself to reach a daily goal.
Have you used a heart rate monitor before? Worth the investment?
How is your weight loss journey going? Do you find it easier or harder to focus this time of year?
