Time for a New HRM?


Week of Workouts

Thursday I did the 21 Day Fix Upper Fix as my legs were sore from the two days of squats with Kelly's workouts.

Friday I did Jillian's Shred-It with Weights Level 2.

Saturday I did Jillian's Extreme Shed & Shred Level 1.


Sunday I took a little break and did Scott Cole's Yoga Tai Chi.

I continued the break Monday and did the 21 Day Fix Pilates Fix.

Yesterday, to let out some frustration, I did Kelly Coffey-Meyer's 30 Minutes to Fitness Train Like a Contender Boxing workout.

Today I did the Body for Life for Women workout.

Time for a New HRM?


More and more often the HRM is dying during my workouts so I don't know how much I'm burning.  I'd replaced the battery on the watch portion a couple of months ago but never the sensor.  I went ahead and replaced that battery and it appeared to work the first day.  But ever since it's not reading me.  At the advise of fellow bloggers I contacted Polar via chat to figure out what to do.  Were you aware that when replacing a battery you should let the device sit 10 minutes without one before putting in the new battery?


So I need to get the serial numbers off the watch and sensor to complete the form so that I can ship them along with the strap to the service center for evaluation. Has anyone dealt with Polar's NY warranty service center before and can tell me how long it usually takes?

BODYpeace Series and a Giveaway

I will be coordinating a giveaway with Suzanne of Healthy Ever Afters for some doTERRA essential oils.  I had hoped this would be a close to the month and go along with the BODYpeace series but I haven't had anyone sign up to guest post.  So I'm going to have to re-evaluate what I want to do with the series.

For the giveaway we can do it one of two ways - just a regular one using GiveawayTools as I've done before or as a custom, interactive class that Suzanne would run with door prizes of the oils.  The class sounds more interesting and beneficial to everyone.  Which would you like to see?

  1. Aw man, that's too bad your polar is dying. Hopefully the warranty will help you out.

  2. Cassi you can estimate your workouts via apps. The heart rate monitor is also an estimate of your true calorie burn anyway. I just don't want you to be too dependent on them. #wowlinkup

    1. Which apps are good for DVD workouts? I've only used the apps for calculating the calorie burn of my walks.
