I've been wondering about this for a while.. is it better to hit my minutes goal for exercise in a week or my calories burned goal? Here's why I ask.. I currently have my tracker set for me to work out five days a week for 45 minutes apiece. I often don't reach that goal; however, when I set the tracker to a lower total minutes goal, I always go way over my expected calories burned number and the tracker warns me that I'm exercising too much. For example, last week I worked out for 160 minutes of my 270-minute goal but burned 904 calories of my 900-calorie goal. Would it be better for me to reset my fitness goals to a minutes-per-week total that I can actually reach and ignore the calories warning? Just wondering since I know the calorie estimates can be inaccurate, especially for a person like me who is below average height.
I hope my question makes sense..I can clarify if that's confusing. Thanks in advance for the help!
