My Whoop & Me

I got a Whoop.  That sounds a little… naughty, doesn’t it?  A Whoop is a new activity tracker.  I’ve used my Apple watch for the last couple of years, but I don’t think it’s as accurate as I’d like, and the battery runs out fast.  I do love that I get texts on it… 🙂

The Whoop seems different from other activity trackers.  As it should be, for it costs quite a bit!  I got a veteran’s discount, which was pretty awesome.  Otherwise, I probably wouldn’t have gotten one.  I have a lot of hopes…  We’ll see how it does!

Here’s some of what it does:

It basically looks at my heart rate and calculates the heart strain, and then balances it with rest/sleep for recovery.  I can dig it.

I’ve done well on my diet and exercise this week.  Tomorrow is a rest day.  That won’t go so well with the Whoop, but it’s good.  I did go to a get-together, and felt obligated to have a drink before leaving.  I had one beer.  Then when I got home, I had a glass of wine and a shot. Ha!  I am trying to only have alcohol on the weekends, but the beer kind of ruined it for today.  Back on track tomorrow!

Side note:  The battle is raging between Old Cat and New Kitten.  The kitten gets scared easily, but the older cat is SO OFFENDED that she runs outside or into the garage at every opportunity.  After hissing and growling, of course.

It all started with my friend, Christine. She called me a Viking. It's because I like endurance sports as well as lifting heavy things. Plus, my heritage includes Norwegians... It struck a chord somewhere deep down. I suddenly liked the idea of not having to be a small, slender person. I could be strong and thick. I could have mass. I don't want to be overweight or obese, mind you. I just don't like trying to be a waif when that is very likely unattainable to me. I have muscle (under this fat). I like being strong. So this is my journey of becoming more fit and liking the fact that I will never, NEVER weigh 120 pounds.
