An HRM question

HRM question: I was on the treadmill yesterday and was amazed that the treadmill’s calorie and heartrate numbers were exactly the same as what my HRM was telling me. Was the treadmill picking up my HRM signals or is the treadmill just spot on normally? The only piece of information I gave about myself was my weight.

On to my yummy morning snack and lunch!

Morning Snacky:

a spooky s’mores clif zbar. you MUST try these. very filling and tasty too.

and a sliced cucumber. unfortunately this guy didn’t really make it, and i only ate half. i only bought him monday so i don’t understand how he could already be so icky! maybe he was just mad I wanted to eat him?

Totals for snack:
142 calories
4 g fat
28 g carbs
4 g fiber
4 g protein

And a simple lunch:

A bowl of my amazing turkey bean chili. This stuff reallly fills you up, and since I ate such a big bowl I really didn’t need anything to go with it today. in the pic you see the cuke which i ate half of right before lunch and then promptly threw away, as well as my daily seltzer water. still need to make it to the market that sells the pomegranate ones!

Totals for lunch:
457 cals
12 g fat
46 g carbs
14 g fiber
43 g protein

i am excited to listen to my ipod while I do my house stuff tonight (clean floors/laundry/wash sheets/clean room/cook dinner). I downloaded a bunch of new songs- including the new jason mraz album! Oh, and my dad saw pomegranates and mangoes on sale for $3 a crate at Sam’s club and so he bought them and passed on 4 of each to me. Expect to see both very soon.

  1. Not sure about the HRM – sorry!!

    Mmm, chili!!

    I miss mangoes – they’ve been TERRIBLE here lately 😦 Thank goodness for frozen mango though!!

  2. The new Jason Mraz cd is great! You’ll love it 🙂

    I can’t find spooky s’mores!!!! This stinks. I’ll keep looking.

    when i went to the gym with my HRM for the first time, the same thing happened to me – suddenly all the machines were picking up my heart rate very accurately (though sometimes the calorie count didn’t match my polar) – i think the machines pick the HR up from the transmitter!! very clever stuff. also made me realise just HOW off their calorie counts had been when they hadn’t registered my HR in the past..

    your chili looks delicious – and over 40g protein?!?!?! woah!

  4. Lol, my bet is that the cuke was just mad! I can’t find the Smores Zbars anywhere near me… I’ve got to find them!

  5. Yup, the cardio machines at the gym will pick up your HRM signal. Usually even the machines next to you will pick it up. It won’t have an accurate calorie count, but it is nice to see your HR on there instead of constantly looking at the watch.

  6. My gym uses TechnoGym machines and I have noticed they read my HR as well. Basically, you could even go without your watch, just wearing your strap, and it would give you the details regarding the calories you burned, max + avg HR etc. Furthermore, the machines we have use the CPR (Constant Pulse Rate) technology which means you can set a constant HR for your entire workout, and the speed will change accordingly.

  7. The TM was probably picking up your signal. But I’d also say that the TM is one of the more accurate machines in the gym (compared to the countless ellipticals and stat bikes and all).

  8. yes, at my old gym, they were trying to push selling HRM to members by saying that all the cardio machines in the gym would pick up the signal.

  9. I like how you’re including your meal-based calories. I am thinking about doing that since I am still 10 lbs away from my weight loss goal. Do you find it helpful so far?

  10. i LOVE jason mraz!! good DL pick!

  11. Your chili looks freakin amazing! 🙂

  12. Wow, that’s a great price for that fruit!

    I’ll have to check out my local Sam’s!

    chili looks so good!

  13. the new jmraz cd is sooooo good! It puts me in the best mood! Good luck with all the cleaning tonight! Cleaning always makes me feel refreshed!
