Day Twenty – Heart Rate Zone Light To Moderate…

“Woooo!!!” Another successful diet day & it was red wine Sunday. After drinking wine, I just ate my dinner & went to bed. Earlier I was full up from lunch, so I just had a banana. I’m glad I left my dinner to sit there & marinate, because the cauliflower rice was gritty & the lamb chewy. When I re heated it, the cauliflower rice was soft & the lamb more melt in the mouth…

Yesterday was my first day with my new fitness tracker. I set my target at 5k steps. Which meant I done about 45 minutes walking yesterday. I’m a bit concerned about my heart rate, on the heart rate monitor. I’m not expecting it to be 100% accurate, but. I feel it is quite high. Resting is 80-90…I’m sitting here now it is around 75…

I want to learn more about this. I know your pulse rate can go up, if your body is reacting to a certain food. I also know there is such a thing as a ‘burn zone’ whateverthatis…

HeartRateZones

This chart makes more sense. So when I was walking yesterday, walking up hill, carrying shopping, I was doing moderate exercise. When I went for a 15 minute walk to reach my 5k step target, I was doing light exercise…

I’ll stick in the moderate zone for now, I don’t want to over do it, but I will aim to reach the vigorous zone next week. It has only been three weeks since I started out on my weight loss journey. It feels more like three months. I have come a long way…

I’m going shopping now…

I got my magnify glass to read the instructions…

First I have to down load the very fit app…I’ll let my phone recharge first…

I am going to set my 10k step target & ensure I start doing at least 10k steps each day, I can use my mini trampoline to get steps in doors. I am interested to see my heart rate. Is there a ‘burn zone’ ? If there is, what is it? Obviously I am a over weight 48 yo unfit woman…

I like the fact you can see the heart rate, steps, distance, calories on the screen, instead of having to wait to see it on the app/phone…

I think its all set up. I can’t imagine it being that accurate. My heart rate seems to be around 70-80 bpm. I’m not sure if that is good or not. My resting heart rate is 62. I put my target steps at 5000 steps, I don’t want to over do it. If I find it easy to do 5k steps each day, I will increase to push myself more…

All I need to do now is set the correct time & date…Ohh! No…The time & date set itself…
