Five Things Friday

1. I have really enjoyed working out with my new heart rate monitor. It is exciting to see how many calories each of my workouts burn. Some activities are burning more calories that I thought...and some are burning a bit less that what I expected. I think this will be a great tool to use.
 2. My runs have been great this week. Monday I did a 5k and Wednesday I did a nice 2 mile run. I am planning another 5k for this week either today or tomorrow. I have also done a WATP DVD and of course Zumba class!

3. Tommy and I are doing some reorganization in the house. Our plan is to trade the rooms his office and the gameroom are in... his office is much bigger than our gameroom so I will be able to make a little workout area in it! :) I am super excited about this room trade and plan to start working on it during my vacation time during the holidays. I don't have any workout machines, but it will be nice to have a room with a television for my workout DVDs other than our main livingroom. And maybe one day I will be able to get a bike or treadmill!

4. This has felt like the longest week ever. I only have one more full week of work before beginning my vacation time! YAY I will be off a full week and a half! Next week should go by pretty fast...

5. I am getting really excited about my Rudolph Run next week with my friend Dick. It should be fun. I just hope this head cold is gone!!!

Have a great weekend!


  1. wow it sounds like you are rocking it!!

    I really want a heartrate watch for christmas or my birthday this year. I would love to see the calories I am actually burning!

  2. I want one of those heart rate monitors! What kind is it & do you have to wear a chest strap? Is it awful? LOL.

  3. Great job! Sounds like you've been doing AWESOME!! :)

  4. Hey busy girl, it's been a while. I want a cute pink heart rate monitor after seeing that image. Hmmm, Santa, are you listening?

  5. I have still never used a heartrate monitor, although I have one that came with my garmin. I should take a moment to put it on someday!
