itching to spend

i like to shop. and i pretty much have a daily thing that i really want to buy. today it's a heart rate monitor.

i would just really like to know exactly how many calories i'm burning when i feel like i'm dying from turbofire or running. i log into myfitnesspal every day, but i just wonder how accurate it is, and if it's not that accurate, am i just kicking myself in the ass?

the one i'm really liking the looks of is a fitbit.

it's tiny. it clips anywhere. and it tracks pretty much everything, including sleep. but it's about $100, and i don't know if you've heard, but i'm unemployed. so we'll see, i guess. 

but do any of you use heart rate monitors? what kinds do you like? i'm curious to hear. 

also, i'm lusting after this raincoat from free people. it's at the mall here, and i've looked at it every time we've gone shopping for the last month. in. love.

let me know what you're itching to purchase. 



  1. Just browsing around and stumbled on your site :)

    I have the Polar FT7 heart rate monitor. I've had it for a few years now, and it's the best training purchase I've made. I cannot work out without it now. It logs my heart rate, calories burned, fat calories burned, and it can be synched to an online diary to help you track your progress.

    I bought it for about $150, and now I just checked and the prices have gone done significantly. It's worth the investment.

    1. i'm not sure why i'm just now seeing this comment! lol thank you so much for the info. i am really dying to buy a heart rate monitor, so i'll definitely check out the Polar FT7. it sounds like exactly what i want! thanks again for reading. i hope you'll come back!

    2. Let me know if/when you get it, and how it works out. :-)
