I got three packages in the mail yesterday that I was super excited about. Two ended up being awesome and one really let me down.
1- Chobani special delivery! So excited to try out the new flavors. I LOVE pear and think it would be great on or in my Warmed Pear & Banana Protein Pancakes.
2- My clothes from Tobi! I did some shopping for my spring/summer wardrobe and I can’t wait for it to be warm out and to have a tan! I am loving the bright colors. These are two of the dresses that I got in my order:
If you’ve never shopped at Tobi you should! It’s 50% off your first order and 50% off anytime you invite 5 friends. Pretty sweet deal, really. If you want to use my invitation code to shop around, click here SO much cute stuff. **FYI you have to connect your FB account for the discounts to work**
3- My Polar heart rate monitor. This was the one I was probably MOST excited about and the one that really let me down. After carefully following the setup instructions and trying to get it to work for over an hour, the thing refused to take my initial heart rate (meaning it wouldn’t take it during a workout either) and I was just so frustrated. It doesn’t work.
I don’t even know what I can do at this point. I ordered it on Amazon but inside the box it says “due to the personal nature of this product, once it has been used it cannot be returned”…but I’ve also heard they have a 2 year warranty. I just want mine to WORK, I was so excited to finally have one Has anyone else ever had this problem? Boo.
I’ll be honest I really wanted to use my new HR watch to see how many calories I torch in hot yoga bootcamp (I KNOW it’s a lot but I wanna know how much!) and it totally put me in a bad mood that I didn’t work. I was in a pretty angry mood during the whole workout, like as if I was thinking if I couldn’t see the calories burned on the watch that they didn’t happen or something. Stupid, I know. I know I got a great workout in. Those bootcamps just keep getting harder!
I made myself some “comfort food” in the form of breakfast for dinner…protein pancake style.
Blueberry & strawberry stuffed protein pancakes with vanilla chobani and warmed dark cherries on top.
Made me feel a little better
And it’s Friday…yay!
Any helpful tips you may have regarding the HR monitor would be greatly appreciated!
