#iheartOmron Fitness Challenge Halfway Mark

Photobucket

The #iheartOmron Fitness Challenge is halfway completed!

Since applying to be an #iheartOmron Fitness Challenge Ambassador I have lost a total of 12.8 pounds! I am sure I have already shredded some inches, but for the sake of the surprise, I am not measuring again until the end of the challenge. 

This week was a little more challenging than the first week. My body started getting used to the workouts but, uh-oh, life happened. That is why I always plan meals, workouts, etc in advance, because if you are not prepared when life strikes, it could throw you for a loop and sometimes it is hard to catch back up to hop back on the wagon. 

As mentioned in previous challenge updates, this challenge would not be successful without the tools supplied to us. The Omron 510W Scale and the HJ-323U USB pedometer have supplied feedback that is essential when trying to lose weight. Some days, my step count wasn't quite what it should have been, and if not for the pedometer, I would not have pushed to reach my goal. The scale provides so much information besides just how much I weigh. I can see how much body fat I have, and see when it goes down and more. 

At the end of the challenge we will be supplied with the Omron Strapless Heart Rate Monitor (HR-5ooU). That is when the real challenge starts! I will be excited to use the heart rate monitor to gauge how my workouts are going and if I should step it up or back down a little for maximum fat burning!

Stay tuned as myself and the other fitness ambassadors continue our journey to lose weight and become healthier!

"life happened"...I totally had that last week. Between being sick, and kids being home...AND then getting out extra early one day, I only got one workout in. This week will be better, for both of us!

Good for you for always planning your meals! That's the way to do it. Have fun with this week's burning and blasting!

Congratulations on your weight loss! You are doing an amazing job!

Lydia said...

So glad you do the planning thing b/c you're right! That definitely helps get through the tough moments. I would be out to eat ALL the time if I didn't plan!

I love heart rate monitor training and plan to take it super slow this time around post-partum. I had the same plan after my son but stupidly entered too many races too soon. Keep up the hard work.
