I love online shopping, I really do. Getting packages in the mail makes it seem like Christmas or my birthday (this is why my poor credit card is in such bad shape!). Today I got two packages both to do with this challenge and weight loss. The first was my new Bodybugg, these little devices are amazing for tracking calorie burn and my old one finally gave up the ghost a few weeks ago. I got the new one that syncs to the iPhone but I wouldn't recommend it for Australians. I had to faff about in the iTunes store to download the matching app since it's only available in America (I had to buy the Bodybugg on eBay because the company doesn't ship it to Australia, hence why the app isn't available here!).
Anyway, it's working now and I'm happy. I kind of miss my old one because as much as I hated the watch that went with it, I loved being able to see my calorie burn in real time. Oh well, live and learn.
The second thing was my Zumba shop package! The shoes are fantastic but I ordered the size US 8 because on the site it said that was equivalent to an Aus size 7 and I've found they're too big for me. Not terribly badly but enough to be annoying. They're gorgeous, though and I used them in my workout today and they were comfortable enough. I'll probably just put some padding in the toes so I feel less like I'm wearing clown shoes!
I used the heavier weights today, too and oh my word did it make the workout more effective. I really love Ripped, maybe because it's that bit slower and so I keep up with the steps easier but I have always loved weights more than cardio.
Anyway, I'm completely and utterly wrecked. Off to have dinner and an early night for me.
