Favorite Things: Gettin' Fit

I think I've been fashionably late to every linky party lately!  I just had to do the Across the Hall's Favorite Things Linky though because this week's topic is Gettin' Fit.

I used to workout ALL the time. And then I fell off the wagon. I'm currently trying to get back on and make working out more of a regular thing.

I love my heart rate monitor!  I have an older version than this picture, but it still works great!  You input your age, weight, and height on the watch.  Then you wear the strap right underneath your sports bra.  It tracks your heart rate (duh) and how many calories you burn. <----best feature right there

While I feel like I'm not getting faster running, I can tell that I am by my heart rate.  Right when school ended my heart rate was HIGH - around 180-182 when I was running for very short periods of time. (Let me say this was NOT fast running).  Just about a month later it's in the 160's range and I'm running farther!

I love hot yoga!  It sounds awful, but you feel amazing afterwards!  The only bad thing is that the room overlooks the indoor and outdoor pool at my gym.  You just want to jump in!

These are my favorite running shoes!  They are super pricey, so I make sure to search ebay for last season's model.

I cannot workout without music!  Love that you can just clip the shuffle to your shirt and go!


  1. Love your blog name! Music is definitely a must when working out!

  2. I love yoga too, but I've never tried hot yoga...I always thought it would be miserable. You MAY have convinced me otherwise.

    Thanks so much for linking up!

  3. I loooove yoga! I don't do hot yoga much cuz it is tough but it's true you feel AMAZING after! And I'm a bad runner but I'm working on getting better at it! Of course music is a must ;)

  4. So glad I found your cutesy blog!! I started running this year and have also learned the trick of finding expensive running shoes for much less on Ebay!! You are right that music is a must.. I absolutely could not get through my runs without it!

    That's So Second Grade!
