Thanks that's good to know. Never thought of that.
Well, I'm happy to say I finally made the 500 mark. yippe!! I'm excited yesterday I did 549 cal.

I was beginning to feel like a failure here because I gain 8 pds and trust me it was not muscle.

I hope to keep this up.

Just a headsup...
I was doing the 500 a day on my own for quite some time, and had NO results. It turned out I was burning TOO many cals and not consuming enough (since I was still running on my original SP rec'd cals). SOOOO Frustrating! I printed out my meals/workouts and took them to my doc and nutritionist and both said the same thing: eat more or workout less. So, I'm back to using the SP cal intake and doing my 500 cal cardio (30 mins) on M,W,F and strength training Tues, Thurs, Sat. Hopefully this will help me see a difference! LOL!
Just be aware, if you up your cal burn to 500x5days a week, tweak your SP profile to reflect an intended cal burn of 2500 a week so that you can adjust the needed cal intake accordingly! :)
Have fun!! :)

I try to do 500 a day and more on most days. Something negative happens at or in my personal life and I fall off the band wagon. I know I can do this

I fell off the wagon this weekend. I was totally stressed from work and just ate whatever I found. Because of this I learned that I'm an emotional eater - I was always in denial.

I going to brush myself off and get back up. 500 calories - I can do this emoticon

I just may have to try 500/day. Seems like a lofty goal for me.
I do have a heart rate monitor, but haven't coordinated it yet.
Maybe that should be my first goal: get it working on Sunday and actually try it out!

I've heard of curves -- there's one in my town -- but I've never tried it.

BEETCARROT-TJ is Turbo Jam. It is SO much fun and a really great workout. I got it because I really can't stand doing any kind of cardio at the gym (though I still do a little to warm up), the time flies SO quickly when I'm jammin!

500 calories is easy to burn if your just cut it out of your intake based on your BMR. But try to get the 500 off on a treadmill, ouch.

Hi all,
I ran for 30 minutes yesterday, and brisk walked for an hour and a half followed by stretching and some aerobics.

I burnt 750 Calories.

I walked with some friends, so we talked a lot and the time passed by quickly.

I will join you but I have to have at least one rest day a week or I might go mad. That of course does NOT count my present 3 days of non activity and poor diet. I am back on the wagon again tomorrow if it kills me.
