Thanks Jen. There is a page where it says you burn X number of calories for housework raking the yard gardening and it is all in my tracker by the number of minutes I do these things, now I am feeling bad that I have been doing some things wrong all this time.
I record my steps from my Omron pedometer and I usually strive for 10,000 steps. Recently I have been checking steps mileage against the 1/4 mile marker and it is exactly on.
I had taken no notice of the word "Moderate " steps and in telling my walking friends how accurate it was they went out and bought them. They were curious about the moderate steps too and I am concluding those are the Aerobic steps the ones I put in my tracker. Not the Big number just moving about.
I do lots of yard work and gardening, and I put the same numbers in my tracker but some asks for Aerobic and others ask for exercise. To come up with it correct there should be a difference.
I understand in my Food tracker I have scales and measuring cups. In the Fitness it is not very easy to get an accurate amount because it is such a variable. Raking grass and shovelling snow. I have a huge yard with trees I can do it day after day in the fall very easily but my heart rate rarely gets up there my arms get very tired after 2 or three hours. Steps on my OMRON is very low because the feet just shuffle so I in put time.
How can I get this to be more accurate please.
I realise this is only a contest of my own exercise but when I see the numbers I have in my fitness I am wondering if I and many others are doing it in correctly.
I guess I just need the answer to AM I DOING THIS WRONG??????
PS Boith were from Coach Nicole I will try to find them.
