Garmin FR70 Fitness Watch with Heart Rate Monitor

My husband and I have been focusing on getting fit. I decided that I needed to know the length, intensity, and calorie burn of my workouts.  I tried a couple different Heart Rate Monitors and decided the Garmin FR70 worked best for me.   At the moment, I am going to a gym, but in the spring I plan to start swimming and jogging. This monitor can also be used in water and to track running.

Carmel Nut Brownie Luna Bars

I am watching what I eat, but at times I really crave something chewy and chocolate. I decided to try the Luna bars in an effort to eat more protein. I discovered these at my local Giant grocery store, but found I could buy them much cheaper on Amazon.  I use these after workouts or for an evening snack. They are not a brownie, but they are as close as I am going to get to one anytime soon!

A Discovery of Witches

I haven’t been reading much since Charlotte was born. I wanted to get back into a good story and my friend Nicole recommended this book.  I read this book and the second in the series in four days!  I love  witches, vampires, and history.  I won’t share more but I will guarantee you won’t regret opening this book!

    If you like reading about vampires and history, have you read The Historian by Elizabeth Kostova? It’s the best book in its genre in my opinion. It changes the traditional gender roles around and is very well written.
