Either my pants are getting bigger or I am getting smaller.

Hey y'all!

So yesterday was a pretty eventful day. 

The G-man bought a new car. Its a Jeep of course! Now we're a green Jeep fam bam! We drove around and went to the lake and let the dogs swim. They had a blast. 

My Polar HRM came in the mail as well. I like the design of the watch but I'm not crazy about the color. It's hot pink. I used it yesterday for the first time to run around my neighborhood but the crazy thing wouldn't work properly. Talk about frustrating! The watch worked fine but I could not get it to pick up my heart rate from the band. I tried wetting the band a couple of times. I even left it on in hopes during my run it might be able to pick it once my HR was up. It never did. 

Does anyone have any suggestions on how to get it to work properly?

So I know during Advocare they tell you not to get on a scale until you done with the cleanse, but I couldn't resit. I woke up today and my ring was sliding around on my finger (it's normally stuck firmly in its place) and last night when I put my PJs on I had to re-tie the knot in my bottoms because my pants were a little loose. SO I was pretty curious. I hopped on the scale and I was down....wait for it... SIX pounds! Now I know the majority of that is water weight, but who cares? SIX pounds! I did a happy dance all around the bedroom. G looked at me like I was crazy, and maybe I am! I didn't realize how swollen I felt because of all of the salt and the junk I was eating. It really is crazy the difference I see so far. My work pants felt loose on me this morning too! I have been sleeping better at night and I feel more rested and feel like I have more energy during the day. I have been eating clean 100% of the time since I started the cleanse and it's paying off. I mean this girl hasn't had a drop of wine since Sunday night. I think that's the LONGEST I have ever gone without a glass of vino that I can remember. I know, I'm such an alcoholic, sue me!

Here's to the freakin' weekend!

    Hey lady! I have a similar heart rate monitor, shoot me an email and we can troubleshoot this and see how we can get it to work better for you! :) I'm no expert, but I'm the QUEEN of Getting Stuff To Work When I Want It To. LMK.
