Loving my FREE Polar HRM

When I started this journey, I told myself that I was going take one thing at a time.  So many times I have rushed out and bought things and didn't even finish what I was set out to do.  My first investment was my Fitbit.  (which I LOVE!)  My Fitbit keeps track of my everyday steps and synches with My Fitness Pal.  It has been a big help to keep me on track.   
Fitbit Ultra Wireless Fitness Tracker 1 of 7 

Now that I am doing more than just walking, I have decided to buy a HRM for more exact calorie burn for when I do incline on the treadmill, weights, and toning.

I just went with the basic Polar FT4 HRM.  
It is perfect for just knowing your heart rate and calories burned during a work out.
  Now there is no guessing and hoping that my calories are correct or not.

You know what else is awesome about this......I didn't pay for it!! I used my Swagbucks to by Amazon Gift Cards and bought the HRM through them.  Amazon had the best price anyhow.
{What is Swagbucks? Check out the post here and here!}

Here are my last two work outs.....during the duration of the work out it will tell you your heart rate and as you scroll through, it will tell you the duration and calories burned.
I really like how easy it is to use!

What are some fitness tools that you love?

Coming Soon......
I have invested into some new toning tools that I have been having fun with.  Also.....I have some new yummy foods that I have been eating.  I'll be sharing those also!

Have a great Sunday!

  1. I've been using a HRM for years. Polar was my first. I've now added GPS which tells distance, pace, and a whole lot more! That's great that your Polar was free!!

    1. Oh yeah, I've seen yous posted before. For what you do, I am sure you really need a nice one. Maybe someday....

      Hope you are doing well!! Hope to see you soon!!

    2. My husband and I both have them, we justify the expense by saying how much we don't spend on medication due to excellent health!

      We are doing great. Plan to be at Ladies Day in Fresno next month.
