I see the Light #iheartOmron #mamavation

On February 4th, armed with the support of my Mamavation sisters, my trusty Omron Fitness pedometer and scale, I made the intention of taking care of my health.   I’ve had some serious ups and downs on my journey.  One week I barely worked out due to fighting off a cold and then hurting my feet.  I set the goal of losing 10 lbs and well, I did not meet that goal.

However I learned that I miss working out. I learned that I love the simplicity of walking 10,000 steps a day.   Seriously 10,000 steps is 5 miles.  If anything, I plan to continue getting in 10,000 steps a day.  I also plan on continue to really look at my diet and keep tweaking it until I find the right balance to helping me shed weight and stay full.  I might not have reach my goal but I learned to love working out again and I am so thankful for that.   I don’t  think of this as the end of my journey but as the beginning and I finally having the tools and drive to get to my weight loss goal.

This week I received the Omron Fitness Strapless Heart rate monitor and man I LOVE it.    It’s so simple to use and I love the flashing color LCD  light that clues you into what workout zone you are in.   It’s water resistant, tracks your pace and distance, calories burned and so much more.  This handy gadget is going to be incremental in the rest of my weight loss journey.

    The most important thing, Kelly is that you are on the right track to being healthy… which is a lot more than pounds lost. Besides, you look like you’ve lost more than 1.8 pounds. :) I’m trying hard to not be a slave to the number on the scales. You know I’m walking at least 10,000 steps a day, too, and it’s a challenge to do that most days, but I do think just walking is a good way to be heart healthy. Keep up the good work, Kelly!
