Well what have you got to lose

So trying again, after the millionth time! Surely something in my brain has to click eventually! I've got lots of weight to lose, and lots to gain - I'm not ready to give up on this yet.

I just had to say - we're dropping our dogs off for the first time at a sitters for the weekend. They have four dogs, one of them an English Mastiff that looks identical to Dexter (200 Lbs). emoticon emoticon Gotta love those pups!

Posting here too!

Here is a link to the HIIT video - I am using it as a fitness gauge - when I can do it I will know I've improved!

I saved the shortcut on my iPad so it's easy to find each time.

I originally bought a cheaper wrist version but sent it back. With them, the reading is not continuous so not as accurate and it's a pain to keep stopping to take a reading. I thought the band would be uncomfortable but I don't notice it.

Here is a link to the one I got.

I feel it's making a difference already as I put the phone where I can see it and push to work harder if my HR is not where it needs to be! I also now have a much better picture of the exact cals burned during exercise.

I added your blog and added you as a friend a while ago as we seem to be in fairly similar positions - both living on remote islands!!

Thanks so much for the very helpful comment on my fitbit blog. Where can I find your Spark video? I would love to watch it. I've also been looking at the Polar series so your endorsement helps a lot there too!! Do you have the band or watch? Any advantages/disadvantages to either model?

Thanks!! Spark On! We can do this!
