Fitness gifts! Polar FT7
Sunday, December 28, 2014
My wonderful husband got me a Polar FT7 heart monitor for Christmas. I was so excited to get an accurate picture of how many calories I'm burning. I have never been that competitive with other people, but I do like to compare my results and see my progress over time.
Naturally, I got sick on Christmas and wasn't able to test it out until today. I put in my Cardio Ballroom DVD and went at it for about 35 minute before I had to tap out... I'm definitely not at 100% yet.
I was pleasantly surprised to see this at the end!
I was so excited, until I realized that only a small portion of my time spent working out was in my ideal "fat burning zone." This is definitely something I am going to have to learn more about, so I don't see any more of this....
Overall, I'm still pleased that I did burn as many calories as I did, and just to be working out again feels great after doing nothing but sleeping for 3 days. I'm excited to use this with all different exercises and see which ones really push me into my fat burning zone.
I hope you all had good holidays!
