Thursday Photo #105

Each Thursday, I sit down and look back on the previous week. There are usually ups and downs, but I always look back on the week fondly. This week has had notably more ups than downs, despite being just as busy as ever – if not more so. On Saturday, everyone went out for the day and left me to my own devices.

TomTom Spark Cardio with music and headphones: Review

The TomTom Spark Cardio music fitness watch with bluetooth headphones is a high-tech, high price point sports watch. Due to the price, I have given a good amount of detail regarding the watch in my review to allow people to decide whether this is the right fitness watch for them. TomTom Spark Cardio Music – Aesthetics I’ve had a sports watch before that clocked my distance and speed and gave me a rough idea of calories burned. But this one is on a whole different level.
