" I thought that it was wrong on the clock. It works not? I got to pick up a heart rate belt, it is safe, but there it was the same thing so..."
"– I landed in bed and fell asleep. Thought it would be gone in the morning. I would be on the band at seven in the morning and drive one hour intervals and it you don't want to miss. It takes time to get a workout indoors. So I stuffed myself with breakfast, and debated what I would do."
