Merry Christmas to me!

I’m very excited! My parents got me exactly what I asked for for Christmas and it’s a training tool! I wasn’t sure if I would get it or not since they are kind of expensive, but I know they support my fitness goals and weight loss so I was hoping a would.  I present to you my newest toy!

A Garmin 305 Forerunner GPS fitness watch with Heart Rate Monitor chest strap! No more trying to track distances, no more trying to remember what time I started and subtract back running time, this will track all of that for me! And it will follow my every movement with the GPS so if I get lost in the park again, or off a selected track it will know where I am and follow me.  In fact, I won’t even have to plan out routes in advance anymore, just get to where I’m going, press start and go RUN!

Thank you so much Mom and Dad! My running and training just got a million times easier and so now I have NO EXCUSES! Thank you for the push and motivation. It will get used and used often!

I hope everyone else has a very Merry Christmas and Happy Holiday season and spend lots of time with your families and don’t worry about what you eat, at least for the next couple days.

  • About Me

    I am a recent graduate in Food Science (NC State, 2009) and I work for a major food manufacturing company. I love food, but I can no longer eat anything that crosses my path. About 24 months ago I begin a serious struggle to get my obesity under control and reduce my chances of developing Type II diabetes. Since September of '09 I have lost 50 pounds and I still have a long ways to go. I've started eating better and exercising more, including taking up running.
