  1. We picked up at Best Buy tonight an Amazon Fire 2020 HD Kids 8 inch WITH case today for $75. DD wanted the blue case. We also bought a 2020 Fire HD 8 Plus for our 12 year old for $75 as well. $90 on Amazon. The Plus has an extra gig and Alexa. We ordered this heavy duty, shockproof case to go with. https://www.amazon.com/Cherrry-Shockproof-Dropproof-Kickstand-Protective/dp/B08GFGP9DS/ref=sr_1_24_sspa?crid=3I767X26XEDHD&dchild=1&keywords=fire+hd+8+plus+case&qid=1603336252&sprefix=fire+hd+8+plus+case%2Caps%2C247&sr=8-24-spons&psc=1&spLa=ZW5jcnlwdGVkUXVhbGlma
  2. Thank you! I'm thinking the iPad mini is similar to a Samsung tablet in the Android world. It's pretty much between Fire and Samsung right now. I think what messed me up is Amazon no longer makes a Kindle Fire, just a Fire tablet. The Fire tablet doesn't have the special display technology the Kindle readers do that give the best reading experience.
  3. Thank you! Much appreciated and helpful reviews! It looks like there are Amazon Fire tablets vs. Amazon Kindle Paperweight/Oasis https://www.toptenreviews.com/kindle-vs-fire-which-amazon-e-reader-is-right-for-you I'm wondering if Amazon has made some changes recently because I'm only finding just the three options on their site as well. It looks like the Kindles don't allow apps to be downloaded either? If we go with Amazon, it's looking like I'll need the Fire tablet for my daughter.
  4. Does anyone here have one? I'm looking for a tablet for my 8 year old, and this is well-priced with good reviews. Pros and cons? Did you choose with or without ads? What storage capacity? I'm trying to figure out there's a monthly subscription cost required as well, or can we run it with Wi-Fi? Really just want a one time purchase and not have any monthly or yearly costs. Thank you!
  5. Forgot! I really felt the workout in my glutes more than before today. I'm all for more more butt muscle activation. I'm an hourglass shape, so def an area I hope to tone.
  6. Heart rate: found a way to mostly keep it in 140-145ish range. Purposeful deep breathing and resting hands on side rails or heart rate monitor bar. Yay! I'm also drinking a ton more water just recently after getting a fancy new water bottle and dropped down to just 1 caffeine drink a day. I think I was dehydrated as well, which can less with your heart rate. I was starting to feel unchallenged and bored and did a mix of 12, 11, and 10 incline today. Feeling a little sore like usual when I increase, but it's usually gone in the morning. I needed a change, so I'm happy about that.
  7. I'm sorry you're missing your exercise right now and hope you feel better soon. Incline walking supposedly decreases pressure on the heel. Speed increase (walking vs. running) seems to increase pressure though. I'm not sure if you feel the uphill walking contributed to the PF though? https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3737957/ Comparison of Plantar Pressure Distribution between Different Speed and Incline During Treadmill Jogging
  8. Thanks for the heart rate info. That helped me relax some. I'm probably a little too cautious about it. It's just I have so many other issues going on and don't want to create anymore. Ugh. I really, really want to be successful this time with exercise too. The first image is just before my workout is finished. My heart rate is 150-155 consistently the last 10 minutes of the workout and 160 and just above if I drink water or switch channels or do something on my phone as well instead if just walk. The other pic is after cool down. Almost 200 calories burned. Whoohoo.
  9. Yes, slow and steady. I mean, how many people are running up mountains when climbing? Maybe for short stretches, but it's about endurance, not speed. I love seeing a pretty great number of calories burned for such a short amount of time working out too! And, wow, 30% is intense. Nice! I tried 15%, and there was no way I could keep up with that.
  10. That's wonderful! Having another exercise option is a blessing. Variation is good. I would choose to increase the incline over speed first. I wanted to get to that at least 10-12 to 15 or greater range that the best for knees ASAP. 6 was pretty easy for me too. I was able to work up pretty quickly to 10. Right now my heart rate is in the high normal range for aerobic exercise (or sometimes higher😬) at 10 incline and 1.7 speed, and I know I'm pushing it. I'll be here awhile until that HR goes down. I think that's pretty pathetic and unusual though. 🤷
  11. I'm curious. What size IP y'all would recommend for a single person? We have a 8 quart, but that makes sense for our large family of 7 with 4 teens boys. 😉
  12. Being gluten free and not buying many expensive special foods, an IP is a good investment for me. Potatoes, brown rice, beans, and lentils all are staples here and are easy to get on the table with an IP. I do make yogurt for my family members that do dairy. I can make 1.5 gallons at a time super easily in my 8 qt. Boiling eggs for egg salad sandwiches is a breeze too.
  13. I'm out of shape, so there's definitely that, but my heartrate is up where it should be for a good cardio workout despite going so slow. I don't know if I could go much faster and keep my heartrate in a safe target zone, at least for everyday exercise rather than 1 or 2 times a week of high intensity. But maybe that's just health guidelines for out of shape people like me? 🤷‍♀️
