So I could keep up with calories lost and miles ran, I purchased a Nike + watch. It's a watch that has a pop out USB drive that you connect to your computer. You can purchase the shoes to go along with it (um...too $$ when I found Asics at a discount store for $25) ANYWAY, So I keep the chip in wallet like compartment on my shoe laces and it's pretty accurate to a treadmill. Once I pop in the USB drive it automatically pulls up my Nike profile and all my runs, miles, calories, and even shows a little me running the path. On this site it has goals you can set for yourself. One of my goals was to run 40 miles in 4 Weeks, well.. I did it in 3! My husband works till about 8:30 pm so.. normally around 4-6 I go down to our exercise room, turn something on the tv, and run. On prettier days I run around Hollywood blvd while the sun is setting.
So I rewarded myself with a purchase of Woman's Health Magazine (Goals and rewards listed on left column). I love it. Every month it comes with a pull out section with exercises to work certain areas of your body. The articles are really beneficial and it also has nutrition in every edition as well. I'm sorry but I can't stand a lot of magazines that are mostly about sex and trying to sell me stuff that I can't afford or won't wear. This one, I like :) So...TA DA :)
