So I decided to invest in a heart rate monitor. It should be here next Tuesday. I'm pretty excited. I heard that it can give you more accurate counts of how many calories you burn per a given time. I'm eager to learn what kind of calories my body burns during my workouts.
My fitness pal (the app and website that I use) gives estimates to how many calories certain activities burn. But honestly, I think their estimates are a bit high. So I'll have to be the judge and do my own calculations.
On that note, I had a powerful lifting day. I benched 50#, but my personal trainer, CJ, thinks I can do a lot more. So I'm assuming that he's going to be upping the weight in our next session.
I've been doing cardio and strength training everyday. I think its important to do both. Don't be a cardio junkie!  :P tongue
