My first set back or mistake not sure.

Wednesday, February 02, 2011

I ate 200 more calories than my goals and missed out on my walk. did do my cardio. I been doing good was even considering changing my goals calories and fitness wise cause i was eating less calories for my goals and exercising more than my goals said. I thinking that its a mistake and maybe in a way i kinda even out the skills. I also noticed I don't get any calories used or exercise times counted for my strength work outs. Any reason for this I wonder.

    You're right cardio is the only type of exercise that is counted. I guess Sparks does that because cardio effects weight loss more directly than strength training (which if done correctly, will probably lead to some good weight gain).

    So this whole calories in/calories out pratice is all about balance. That is, we have to have enough fuel (cals in) to have exercise efforts (cals out) to be effective and efficient. If you have a great negative caloric balance and try to over exercise one's body thinks it is starving and hordes the calories put in and weight loss suffers. So, again balance (including changing your goals to reflect what is best for your body) may be a GOOD thing to consider. Plus eating a too restrictive diet is not a fun nor a pratical way to live the rest of your life, right?

    See this Spark article for a little more information:

    Just some food for thought. :)
