Not really, it is what it is. I typically burn about 300-500 cals which is equal to a 30-60 minute run for me. I do 20-60 mins of running 5-6 days a week and lift weights 3x a week for 30 minutes. Since I got my Fitbit I've been more into my steps, miles and total calorie burn. I usually get about 12-15k steps when I don't exercise and 20-25k steps when I run. I usually burn between 2200-2600 cals total per day and get about 7-10 miles.

I don't think that much about it. It generally works out to be 30 minutes of intense cardio or an hour of yoga or strength training a day (5 days a week). It works for me and keeps me from getting too caught up in the numbers.

800 calories a day, 6 days a week is my goal. Generally I am pretty close to that.

I have metabolic problems, so this is a maintenance level for me, even if I only eat 1200 calories a day

i do 12 to 25 minute workouts daily and i go at my maximum intensity. i don't bother with calories burned for exercise or consumed.

I usually strive for 30 minutes to an hour of exercise a day instead of going by the number of calories. Usually I strive to work out 5 days a week but sometimes it is more because I feel so much better when I do. A great question! Have a wonderful day!

Do you have a set number of calories a day or week that you try to burn? Do you target for a certain amount of time per day/week? Personally I try to do a mixture of strength and cardio about 5x a week burning an average of about 500 calories a day.
