Some days my bodymedia doesn't give me credit for the exercise I do.. Running on the treadmill (or outside) it always give me credit...the elliptical I think pretty good... the arc trainer, not always gives me credit... and the bike.. hehe it will give me some.
I think its because bodymedia relies on arm movement as one of its things to measure....
Anyway, some days it doesn't give me credit..and other days it gives me MORE...
Now I always thought of my job as a largely sedetary one.. (and it IS mostly) but I try to build walking into my day... looking for opportunities.. and I think that's what its giving me as "moderate" activitiy.
now I only recently linked my bodymedia and spark accounts a few days ago... so most of the 1,296 minutes I've earned this month (and MAN, I can't BELIEVE that number!!!) are from me actually entering activity, not counting what bodymedia did... but Feb will be all Bodymedia attributed.
So.. is that bad? I mean some days it doesn't give me full credit, but other days it gives me a bit more than I thought of as "exercise"... I figure it probably mostly evens out in the end.
In other news, I've set up an appointment with a nutritionist, March 1. I am tracking on Myfitnesspal and even though they only ask for 1 day of nutrition/meals... I plan on tracking every day and bringing like a MONTH... bwahaha
