    For a while there, every single workout I did was using either my Polar, Garmin, or both. Now, I try to use my Polar when I work out at the gym, and only use my Garmin for races and not just every day runs. I find I get too focused on my pace/heart rate and it kind of takes the joy out of working out for me. Sometimes though, like this morning when I wore my Polar, it helped me a lot because my heart was POUNDING even though I didn’t feel like I was working that hard for part of it. It helps to know what your body is doing for sure!

      A little part of me DID just enjoy running and not focusing on how many calories I burned. There are many times where I’ll feel really good about my run and then check the calories and feel deflated. Like if I hadn’t burned a certain amount, the run somehow wasn’t good enough??

    I always work out without a device but not becuase I want to but because I can’t find one here in France. I have tried ordering them off of amazon but they say they are no available in to ship to my address. 🙁
    I can’t wait to move home and buy one right away!

      That’s a bummer! You don’t have anyone back home to mail it to you?

    There is something VERY VERY soothing about a crackling fire in the fireplace. (and I admit, I LOVE the smell too) All the best for your Thursday Lisa.

      It’s sooo needed sometimes! It makes the house feel homey and comfortable.

    I don’t work out with anything anymore. I used to have a heart rate monitor, but I stopped wearing it a couple years ago. I had one of those GoWear Fit things, which I really liked, but then I just decided I didn’t need it anymore. I ballpark calories burned now and I probably am pretty close.

    I miss our fireplace! We had one in our old house and I loved it!

      I feel like I work out harder when I have my HRM. I don’t know why….

      P.s. I bet you want a fireplace now that you have snow! Wow. October is too early!

    I go “naked”… I sort of use the HRM built into the machines at the gym but I don’t follow it very well. Just kind of peek at it when I get going good and again towards the end of things.

    For a while I did seriously considering buying one that would track calories burned and all that though.

      The machines can be a good guide for estimating. I prefer using my HRM over those because it’s more accurate, and it means I’m not stuck in the gym…I could go for a bike ride/hike/run outside and know how many calories I burned.
