From last Tuesday to this past Tuesday I recorded 13 hours and 6 minutes of exercise, burned 8079 calories of which theoretically 5490 of those calories came from the fat as fuel. This is all according to the information that I put into the New Leaf site. Now from my heart rate monitor it was 6075. I have a Polar FT4 and it is not computer compatible and I really want one that is. I am not sure why such a difference except that the New Leaf site has it calculated how much I burn based on my heart rate. I have an email in to Tate asking him why such a difference. I do know that the biggest difference occurred on the day that we went biking. It said that I should eat 4800 calories that day, REALLY!!!!!!! Not sure what to make of this yet.
It was a good day to not workout. I had the alarm set for an hour earlier but when it went off, just could not do it, so plan was to try and get a workout in after work but that plan was ruined. First I forgot my breakfast at home and I live to far away to run and get it or to have hubby bring it so I had to make due with what I had, an Atkins bar and cottage cheese. Good thing I pack a little something extra in case I get real hungry. I always try to have a big breakfast and then taper the eating off throughout the day. There was no way to get in enough calories by the end of the day if I workout out.
Second, hubby called and reminded me that I had a doctor appointment with my new GI doctor. Crap, I thought it was on Thursday. It took almost 2 months to get into see him if I would have missed it, I would have been peeved. That all went well.
So, right now I am really tired and think I will be crashing soon. Have to get up and workout before work.
Oh, I am on the lookout for a used road bike. If anyone has a brand that they like, let me know.
