...and then get ice cream too.
1,284 calories just on lunch today. >WHEW< Imagine if I went out to eat a few times a week? Bad, bad, bad idea!!
I then bought my HRM at the sporting goods store. I got a Polar FT4. I have no idea what F T or 4 stand for, but it sounds serious and high tech, and I may very well burn more calories just due to the fact that I feel so officially monitored. Yep! Never mind the fact that I got a pink one. (Annie, I thought of you and chuckled...Some of us LIKE pink a lot. ;) ) Pink can be a very serious and strong color. Heck - I'll MAKE it so!!
So now I'm about to take this thing out of the package. If only I could use it WHILE trying to open this moronically designed packaging, because I bet I'd burn a couple hundred cal's in the process. Hopefully it's simple to get started with and I can jump right into tonight's Insanity workout without having to fidget with this thing much. I am 804 calories over my daily amount today, so I need a great workout! And tomorrow morning is my weekly weigh in. I hit the 140's 2 weeks ago, and brought it down to 148.6 last week. This week has been EXCELLENT and I am giddy with excitement to see what the scale says tomorrow!! I do wish I didn't care so much, and that my NSV's were outshining the scale progress, but I can't help but feel elated when I see #'s on the scale giving me something concrete to confirm that my efforts are paying off. When I think of hitting 144 - a weight I was for a long time when I think I looked really good - I feel sorta the way I did those early months with my boyfriend, when a thought/realization just makes my heart feel like it's suddenly soaring. Yeah - THAT good!!!! I'm so close!!! I WANT IT!!!!!
Suddenly really regretting that stupid honey BBQ chicken strip blunder. >sigh< Oh well.
Will update after Insanity and breaking in this kickass yet adorable pink HRM.

Insanity Max Interval Plyo: My new HRM indicated I burned EXACTLY 500 cals
at the end. I was tempted to do a few jacks just to make the number look more
exact and not like I rounded it off.
