Gadget Girl

Had an uneventful evening. I made Salmon for dinner with roasted red potatoes and spinach. Next time, I want to try some panko breading that I got. Panko is a Japanese bread crumb that is coarser then regular bread crumbs so it makes a delicious crunchy coating for chicken or fish. I will let you know when I make it.

I have had a Garmin Heart Rate Monitor on my "wish list" for quite awhile. I kept thinking that I wasn't active enough to justify the expense and only "real" athletes or very active people used them. Well, I decided that I can be athletic and active! I can optimize my workout time by reaching and maintaining my ideal heart rate. It was $65 on Amazon and it should be here tomorrow. I am excited to test it out. I am feeling a little like Gadget Girl between the Fitbit, my iPod and the Garmin.
Tonight I am going to dinner with my mom and take her to the grocery store. We are both adjusting to this situation and it has been a little rough on both of us. She feels lost without her car and the things that bring her enjoyment like reading the paper and emailing her friends have become more challenging. She is not the most patient person in the world Bwahahaha but we making it work. Until next time...


  1. I have that same watch. I wear it all the time, even when I'm not working out. Why? Because it reminds me that I am an active healthy person now. Every time I look at it, I'm motivated to stay on track!

  2. I want a heart rate monitor! Glad you got one :)

  3. So is this gadget better than the Body Bugg & Fitbit? I am trying to figure out which one to get outta the three. I got a very basic heart monitor but want to upgrade to something of better quality. Let me know how you like this new one.

  4. I heart panko! Truly...and I sprinkle a little on top of creamed spinach, too. (Homemade and lowfat, OF COURSE!)

  5. "I can be athletic and active!"

    Darn straight! And you ARE! And the more you ARE, the MORE athletic and active you'll become! What an awesome cycle, eh? Go for it, gadget girl! Tee-hee!

    Panko breadcrumbs are all I use now. I put 'em on my homemade baked mac and cheese (which I only make for SPECIAL occasions...*sob*). They really are better! You'll see a big difference. :)

  6. Katie, we are just too much alike. My FT60 quit on me and I replaced it with this exact model! lol

  7. Oh, and mine arrived *today*. lol We're twins, I tell you.

  8. man I am sooo not into gadgets ---which Id lament more BUT right now it's saving me lottsa money :)
    I am into shoes though...



I'd love to know what's on your mind...
