Hello Hilary Duff? Ehem…So I’m planning on getting a heart rate monitor but I need some advice. I’m pretty positive that I want a Polar but there are so many different models and I don’t really have any idea which one would be most appropriate. My main concern is just the basic features, but it would be nice to have additional features available if I wanted to use them so I don’t want to get something too simple and basic. I also don’t want something that’s getting into the $200 range however… I’ve been browsing around the web looking at reviews and such. It would seem as though the F6, F7 or F11 would be the best option for me (I’m assuming they’re all the same model just upgraded versions of each other?) but I’m still not quite sure. Any heart rate monitor advice? Do you use one? If you do, which one do you use? What kind would you recommend? Polar or not, any info and recommendations would be awesome :)
Yesterday, 1 oclock, midterm time.
I wanted to be fully and properly fuelled up for it so I figured the best way to do that was to that was to go all fancy and decadent with a bowl full of
Chocolate-Covered Strawberry Oatmeal
This bowl contained:
- 1/3 cup oats
- 1/3 cup water
- 1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/2 large banana
- a few strawberries
- 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
- SF gingerbread syrup
- Topped with more strawberries and Kit Kat Bites
My mom decided to bring home a bag of those dangerous little bites the day before so I figured they’d go quite well with my chocolatey oatmeal. And they did of course, no surprise there.
This was my first try using cocoa powder in oats. It’s good! I probably put a bit too much though because it was pretty strong. I didn’t really intend to add any syrup initially but I needed to sweeten up the bitterness from the cocoa a bit. Otherwise this was quite tasty though!
However minimal sleep + studying stress = concentration on nothing other than food. I made an iced coffee but then I just wanted some crunch.
Yeah, I just threw those right into the Magic Bullet cup that my iced coffee was in. No need for schmancy dishes.
I was going to inhale the whole kitchen but instead I inhaled two kiwis and a bunch of grapes and then took off for my midterm.
When I got home I made a big salad with feta, plus some rice crackers a bit of havarti.
And then a big bowl of pumpkin, vanilla yogurt and tons of cinnamon heated up.
Dinner was kind of random. Some Chicken Cacciatore, egg whites with spinach, cooked asparagus, half a carrot and there was some fresh bread in there too.
Something about this dinner gave my stomach great pains. It didn’t really make any sense considering none of the food I had was anything out of the ordinary. Maybe crappy carb overkill, too much white bread and white pasta all at once? I don’t know but I wasn’t impressed.
After dinner I went browsing around Chapters with a friend for a little while, then we went grocery store browsing for a bit, where I bought No Nuts Golden PeaButter! I obviously had to try it right away. It’s made with peas, how cool is that? It’s super creamy and tastes quite similar to peanut butter. I’m a new fan.
Alright, time for a treadmill run perhaps? I’m aiming for a longer one today!
