While reading one of my favorite blogs, RunEatRepeat, I discovered this gadget. I had to get one. And I didn’t wait for it in the mail. So, I rushed out to Best Buy and bought it, so it could tell me how fat I am.
It’s super easy to use. Comes with the batteries. And can analyze your Fat Loss in two modes: Normal or Athlete. The instructions even give you a chart to figure out which category you fall in. These instructions are definitely way easier to read than the ones that came with the Omron Heart Rate Monitor.
What did the calculated results tell me?
“YOU’RE FAT!” LOL. No, it didn’t tell me that. Actually, I was quite pleased with the progress results (they fell in normal range).
First thing in the morning (right out of bed and heading for coffee), I took this baby for a spin. Actually you just stand very still with your arms straight out in front of you, and hold the monitor as instructed. In just a few seconds you get the results.
I compared those results to my personal log sheet. The BMI is the one point different than what I had a few weeks ago. But the Body Fat count… I am way more pleased with. Because previously, the girl at the gym took my calibrated measures I was wearing clothes. And I didn’t feel it was an accurate count.
The instructions tell you the best time to measure your Fat Loss. And what conditions might effect your count. Overall I am very happy with it!

BTW, it holds 9 profiles. Meaning you can measure you husband, your mom, and your friends.
Southern California Hail
In other news… the summer like weather, here in Southern California, has ended for now. And we received the other extreme – hail.
Sounds like a great night for the hubs and I to enjoy a log in the fireplace and a hot cup of tea. The other plus to rain is the rainbow.
And in this pic, above, it’s right over the Miller Brewing Factory.
What’s your favorite relaxing thing to do when you’re stuck indoors from bad weather?
