QUESTION- How to burn 400 calories

Thursday, April 18, 2013

Is there any place on SP that I can look for ideas on how to burn a specific number of calories?
My tracker says I have to burn 398 today

Do you know how many calories you are burning currently? You could probably go to the fitness tracker and type in say, 3 miles of walking at 4 mph and per your tracker it should approximate what you burned then, you can adjust your time or rate to get your burn if walking is your choice.

It would probably work the same if you entered jogging or strength training...I would say don't be pressured by the number 398. There's nothing wrong with taking small steps at first and working your way up to 398 calorie burn. Set a goal like I will be up to a calorie burn of 398 by the end of April. Good luck I hope I helped.

    You could invest in a heart rate monitor?

    Try dancing, zumba is my favourite, or interval walking/jogging.

If you have a game console like wii, get some fun games like Just Dance (so much fun and gets you sweating), Zumba, yoga, or other interactive games. Makes it a lot more fun to work out and gets your entire body moving. Plus they help you track calories burned.

    If you go to Sparkpoints and scroll down to( Read a sparkpeople acticle). It will lead you to( Fitness resources),click on it and it will lead you to (workout generator). It will set you up a plan and you can find exercises you want to do.

    Walking for about an hour does it for me. I just put on my headphones and hit the pavement. I want to eventually start running but I don't want to put too much stress on the knees.
