There have been four weeks in the #IHeartOmron challenge. If you haven’t had a chance, check out my previous posts:
This has been a tough challenge for me. I was sick for the first two and a half weeks. I am still getting over this cough which has seriously hampered my ability to exercise as much as I would like to but I have still done fairly well with over 14 pounds gone. I just think that I could have had higher weight loss results had this never-ending sickness not set in.
Omron gave us bloggers some really cool products to use during this challenge including:
Now the Strapless Heart Rate Monitor just arrived a few days ago so I have been having some fun playing around with it and getting used to wearing it. So far so good although I had a few problems getting it to work at first but now everything is working well.
Have you heard about the Omron Strapless Heart Rate Monitor HR-500U?
Every fitness program from weight maintenance to strength training has an optimal Heart Rate Training Zone. The new Omron HR-500U strapless & continuous wrist Heart Rate Monitor takes away the need to use an annoying chest strap while exercising.
