who, me confused?????

Saturday, December 04, 2010

i saw an ad the oter day on this site, about tee shirts and other clothes with fruit and veggie prints has any one of you the link?

I am also a bit confused (what else is new emoticon)

I have changed gyms and the precor or elliptical is different, when it calculates calories
it used to be 35 min and 345-350 cal.
now it is 35 min 125 cal.
and i need to change my calorie burning but cant get there either. emoticon

    Getting a pul;se monitor is a great idea. I have heard the the calorie calculations on gym machines are not very accurate. I usually just enter the activity in my log and let SP figure the calories!

Can you get a pulse monitor? If you track your own pulse changes, to know when you are at some % of your maximum pulse, then maybe you can estimate your calorie burning better than whatever the machine indicates.

    The same thing happened to me. When we bought a new elliptical it showed only 25% of the calories burned compared to the old one.
It was really irritating until I stopped looking at it. I tried to work as hard as did on the other one and concluded that the results would be the same whatever the display said! Now the display´s broken anyway and I only use the tracker here for that.
Makes it harder to know what you´ve really burned though...

I too need to change the settings and don´t understand how. The foodtracker tells me that I eat too much and the fitnesstracker that I have to eat more if I´m going to train this much. And yes it´s confusing!

Have a lovely sunday! emoticon

    Hmm, what a mean thing to burn less for the same effort...

If I google around it says that you lose 80-100 calories per ten minutes if you walk – ah but you mean that you haven´t been able to program that thing right, that´s why it´s showin less... but as you know how it worked with the old one you can do some sort of average counting without that thing measuring... I will change batteries in the training bike today becasue it shows calories burned to although not so sophisticated mor like an estimation.

OUCH I've done it again

Wednesday, December 01, 2010

well I have not behaved, i have sabotaged myself again.
the scale is up ,down, up.Seems like I can not help but ruin my good intentions ,there is obviously "trash-talk"going on in my mind without my permission.
soon I give up emoticon emoticon emoticon
Got to fix this somehow
i have not measured since sept. I did this morning and I still measure the same
I need 1 -2 more inches off the waist. .
I also need not to become depressed, it is that time of year for me so there is a double whammy here..
I promise myself and you that I will will keep to my diet, go to gym 6 days per week and do cardio and weights. I will be back with new blog about this january 1st.

Sorry for the ranting got to get it out somehow and in print I am more accountable.
so I will try to be good. emoticon

    I do think december is a hard month in many ways, so easy to get mixed up in expectations and ditues and then it is so dark too!

It is really great if you can manage to go to the gym every day – otherwise three times a week is good enough for keeping up...

I too had a little setback as I have been on plan but seem to have gained a little, started weighing myself, which might turn into an obsession very easy. It immedeately turned my mood for the worse. My life is not my weight... but it feels that way.

    I am trying to lose fat around my middle and haven't a clue how to do this. I watch what I eat most of the time, but I don't seem to whittle away the pounds that have accumulated there. Any suggestions? emoticon

    HI darling, please don´t use the word good this way, not even when joking. When you say to yourself that you´ll try to be good it´s the same as saying that you´re bad if you don´t do it, and that does nothing for the losing weight.
When I let go of those words to describe myself, in thinking, my world changed!
YOU ALREADY ARE GOOD whatever the body looks like. You´ll be worth exactly as much as a human when you´ve lost the weight you want to lose as you´re worth today.

I too have the scale-fixation-syndrome, we have to fight it!
A lot of love from Spain!

    This, I think, does not exist in Sweden yet. Thanks for asking because I had to google and it seems like an interesting business idea!

    No, I have noticed that they are expensive, but I guess a bathroom re-model is always expensive. Good luck!
