Get in the right zone

watchWhen my second son, Sean,  was about 6 months old, I hired a trainer for the first time.  It was actually my first time working out in a gym as well.  She suggested I get a heart rate monitor and told me what “fat burning zone” I should be in.  This zone is disputed and you will hear there is no such thing, but for me , it worked!  I lost a lot of weight at that time.

Ten years later I just got a new one…and it keeps track of calories burned!  I compared the calories burned on the watch to what I plug into and they matched pretty well.  Polar makes a million different kinds, but this is all I need.  I like to keep it simple sweetheart!

I want to hear your experince with your heart rate monitor!

  1. I had a heart rate monitor quite some time ago but in the process of moving a while back, I think the pieces got separated. So I’d love to give it a try again!
