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 displayīs broken anyway and I only use the tracker here for that.
    Makes it harder to know what youīve really burned though...

    I too need to change the settings and donīt understand how. The foodtracker tells me that I eat too much and the fitnesstracker that I have to eat more if Iīm going to train this much. And yes itīs 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 havenīt been able to program that thing right, thatīs why itīs 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.
