Wacky Wednesday

Wednesday, March 09, 2016

Well I am proud to say that this morning my alarm went off at 5 and I looked at it for a few seconds and thought it would be SO easy to just reset it for 6 and go back to sleep. But that is one of the ways I got to the point that I'm at now so instead I turned it off and got up. I decided to try the second routine on CIZE and let me tell was SO FUN! I felt like I was really learning a dance routine and not just doing a workout video. My Fitbit told me that I burned 508 calories. 508!! I couldn't believe it!

Speaking of calories you think the Fitbit would be accurate with the 508 calories? I mean it was 46 minutes and I did work my tail off but I just want to make sure it's as accurate as possible. I have the Charge HR. I also have a Polar HRM that I haven't been using just because it's so much easier to use my FB but I'm willing to go back to the HRM if it's going to give me a more accurate reading. Anyone have any thoughts?

So on a personal note, my son had a wrestling tournament this past weekend and he placed 3rd! He also got his first pin! He was so excited and I was shaking I was so pumped for him. The team took 3rd overall as well so it was a great day for the Mountaineers. Here are some pictures from the meet:

And then on Sunday he went to get his hair cut and he got a Mohawk!!

And he has been begging me to dye his hair pink. I found some spray on color that washes out with one wash and we decided why not do it today?

Who ever said boys were no fun? LOL This weekend we have a break and I'm getting my hair done and we are going to relax! He signed up for Soccer last night and that starts towards the end of May and my husband will start his league around that time as's going to be a busy summer!

    Good for you for getting up and getting your workout in! Mornings are hard for workouts but end up being the best overall because then you got it in and don't have to worry about it later on.

    Congrats to your son and his team! The haircut and pink coloring sound like fun too :)

    Congrats to you AND your son!!!

    As for the Charge HR, that sounds about right, depending on your HR zone. I'd take IAMZBEE's advice and test it by wearing both next time. Did you look at your workout info and see where your HR was and for how long? 508 sounds about right to me.

    That calorie loss sounds right. It's about where I am when I do 40 minutes of aerobics. Great job! It's great that you are so into your children and do what is fun for them. They'll remember that stuff when they become adults and raise their own children. Keep it up!

    I love that your boy is rocking something that he loves!

    You inspire me to get up instead of sleeping in for another hour!! It is so easy but feels amazing when you get your butt up & moving, again, in it for YOU!! keep it up.

    I agree with IAMZBEE that a HRM would be more accurate than just an activity monitor, i am so lost when i dont have mine!!

    Keep killing it gir!

    HAHAHA love your sons hair how fun is that! I know some moms that would not let their kids do something like that. Who cares it will grow back! I think thats awesome you let him have some fun with it.

    So I have a Polar HRM and mine got to a point where it wasn't tracking my heart rate correctly. It would tell me that I had a 42 bpm which is NOT correct. So I'm not sure if the product was just old and defective or the battery was dying I'm not sure. I had mine for maybe 3 years max at that point which I don't think it should crap out on you that early so I got a fitbit instead and I've tested it out to see how accurate it is with the calories and it seems to be pretty accurate.

    Why don't you try the fitbit and HRM at the same time and see. The HRM would definitely be more accurate as it's taking information straight from the beating of your heart.

    And congrats on the munchkin's win!!
