What I Learned Today and a Question

Being prepared= Good!
Not relying on that preparation= Bad :(
Eating healthy whole food=Good
Eating sweets and chips=Bad
Eating doughnuts=worse!
Going running=Good
Going running in 90 degree heat=Actually not that bad
Going running 90 degree heat with a strong wind, breathing out your mouth, and NOT taking water=dumb
Going running to try and work off extra eaten calories for weigh in=just plain silly
Being able to laugh at yourself=Priceless!

On a side note, I've been thinking of getting some kind of body monitoring something or other for my birthday. I'm not sure what to get or if it's really worth it. Is there anyone out there that has any recommendations? Something like body bug or Nike+? Let me know what it is, and if it's really made a difference or not. Thanks!

I vote for Nike + because that's what I have. You can either get a sportband to go with the shoes that have a sensor in them. Or you can get one that goes into your ipod that also goes with the shoes. OR you can get this thing that ties onto shoes you already have. I haven't actually seen that version, but have heard of someone using it. LOVE it! It's a great way to track how you are doing, how long it takes, your pace, and the time of day.

I love the new design!! very cool! and my vote is for a garmin if you can spring for it. It's download able to daily mile and to it's own website.

I love my Body Media Fit. It's my constant companion. Instead of reposting, I'll just point to the blog post where I extol its virtues:

Ask Nicole about the Garmin, she loved it for her run she did and just ordered one. My neighbor has the Nike and after the run said she was going to get the Garmin too. It must be good.

I've heard awesome things about the Body Bugg.

I have a Nike+ and I LOVE it...but it only works for runs/walks...not for calories burned or GPS or anything like that.

You look SO good Sam. I'm so impressed. Also, I can tell a difference in you from a year ago. Man, you are the best. I'm so happy we are "sisters". :D
